DOUBLE JEOPARDY A Denver

Filed at 6:24 am under by dcobranchi

DOUBLE JEOPARDY A Denver high school student was suspended for putting up posters promoting a student walk-out to protest Bush’s war against Iraq*. Administrators had warned him that doing so would earn him a one-day suspension because a walk-out would disrupt the educational mission of the school. I think they’re probably correct. But, they’ve threatened him with expulsion if students walk out. That’s going too far. How can they hold him responsible the the actions of the other students?

*Yes- I recognize the political nature of this statement. IMO, when Pres. Bush stated that he didn’t care how many protesters there were against the war, he was going to war anyway, it became his war. He does still work for us, right?
