I just think its not right to be suspended. We have the right of speech don't we? As I havent read the facebook in detail, it should be legal...its just like ratemyteacher.com

Do you think schools have the right to suspend kids due to comments or posts made on the internet.

I saw a few peeks of the site when watching TV, and I think I might want to change my mind about it being right as those things were REALLY racist, to the point where the writer could be easily sued.

My music teacher was talking about students abusing his email account for projects and how he was two phone calls away from getting the Hacker Squad.

True, but the thing is, the school is allowed to be invovled when it risks the safety of its staff and students, and in this case, the moral safety for its principal.

Most definitely.

I think is better to get a school suspension than having the principal suing you or something, if they knew it was you. Its only eight days anyways.. eight free days :)

If im not mistaken, pretty much everywhere in the world he can sue someone for doing that (insulting, telling lies about a person) on tv for example, so why not the internet? it's pretty much the same :P

Telling lies = yes.  Insulting = not necessarily.

For example, if I were to post "Chrono kills kittens", you could sue me for libel.  However, you would have to prove that statement isn't true to prevail (as opposed to me having to prove it is).  That alone makes it complicated.

If I were to post "Chrono sucks, he is the worst moderator ever, I hate him, and I've heard he eats kittens", you would have nothing to sue for, as those are opinions and hearsay, not factual allegations.  This is why news organizations are careful to use the word "allegedly" when reporting on crime -- it is the magic word that makes anything not libel and protects them from being sued later, should the suspect turn out innocent.

For the record, the above is based on US law and I like Chrono.  :)

Regarding the principal's actions, I too agree that they are unreasonable and amount to abuse of position of power.

Exactly. They act like that because they are angry, mad...

I'm gonna wander waaay off topic here, but none the less.

To be honest, I think this whole shabang is the dumbest thing I've heard in awhile. (My friends' dad teaches at Robert F. Hall SS, and I go to another school in the same school board system.) I think the students who posted the messages have some good reason to do so, although tbh, there telling the wrong person to suck "it".

Our school board (not the principal of the school) has banned all electronic/communications devices from the ENTIRE SCHOOL PREMISES. How is banning me from listening to my iPod in the cafeteria gonna help anything? (especially since we have a 75 minute lunch break).

In my opinion here is how the rules should be laid out:

No devices in exams, except standard calculators (no cell-phone calculators)

The rest of the time, it should be up to the teacher of the class. If the teacher wants to assign independent work, he/she should have the ability to allow kids to listen to music. Personally, I would much rather listen to music while doing my work and drown out the idiots in the classroom causing commotion.

Although Iím gonna admit, PSPs and DSs do not belong in the classroom.

Iím done. Yeah, its just a pile of my own opinions, make what you want of it.

edit: q25, we also have uniforms, I just live with that, its a convenience to me.
