    This editor gets it.

    School disciplinary actions against a 17-year-old Carroll High School student apparently were resolved Thursday in a disappointing conclusion that left more questions than answers and left the free speech rights of Carroll students in question.

    In what at first blush seems to be a classic example of Orwellian doublespeak, the Northwest Allen County Schools board approved an agreement that officially rescinded the expulsion of student Jeff Fraser, but for all practical purposes upheld it by banning him from the school and this spring’s commencement. And in a final slam at free speech, both sides in the matter have apparently agreed not to talk about it.

    UPDATE OF THE UPDATE: The ACLU-IN is now aware of the case and is looking into it. Yes, I’m a troublemaker.
