PostSubject: Increasing action against students   Wed Jul 25, 2007 5:09 pm

While not as forefront as Murdoch's potential leadership. I've noticed a steady rising of action against students for comments or stories posted on personal blogs. They've been disciplined, expelled, or not allowed to run for student office...

Quote :
A rising senior at Lewis S. Mills High School who was removed from her student government post for comments she made on her blog sued the school district July 16, claiming her First Amendment rights were violated.

The lawsuit seeks an injunction ordering the school to allow the student, Avery Doninger, to deliver her campaign speech, participate in a new election and serve if she wins, according to Avery's mother, Lauren Doninger.

Furious that the school had canceled a concert she and other students had been planning for months, Avery logged on to LiveJournal.com, an online diary community she had joined years earlier but had not updated in months, from her home computer on the night of April 24.

Read the SPLC story

Should students be held accountabe by the school for comments made off-campus? Is a Livejournal or MySpace page any different than a diary kept under the bed? Do you think the schools have or should have the right to take action against students who have something bad to say about their classroom?
