It is easy to feel torn, as I was a total hot head in high school. I agree that the consequence was severe – but is she likely to make that mistake again? In my experience working with children we were told that you only have to implement an appropriate consequence once if it is the right one.

The school cannot permit a student in a leadership position to be so openly disrespectful to them. It goes beyond that you be willing to say the insult to someone’s face, we should hold ourselves to a higher standard of conduct. It is a mistake to think that the time to teach your child that concept is when they are leaving for college.

There was a time when the school would have relied on the parents to judge the consequence, but the parenting line has become so blurred. With the prevalence of blogging and myspace pages, parents will need to impress upon their children the permanence of posting his or her opinions - it is not hearsay if it can be printed in black and white.

What ever happened to freedom of speech? I'm with you on this one. The punishment was too severe. If anything, the student's parents should've been the one to punish them in this instance...not the school. The student didn't say those words on campus. I think everyone has at least questioned one of their teachers in their lifetime. The only difference is that we didn't have Myspace back in the day. Trust me, I would have voiced my opinion loud and clear on Myspace had it been around when I was in grade school. Also, that was some good campaigning.
