Now, Schools are trying to support bush or something, because at my school (private) they told me not to write disrespectful things about the president. It's really weird last year and the year before I did it and no one complained, but this year... strange. A parent could of complained, but I do have freedom of speech. Lol we just learned about constitution today and freedom of speech and they are already taking it away. laugh my butt off. guys

I mean seriously I think there might be some mind control going on.

Did you know? The former republican palace was in bagdad! LOL! we're fighting to get it back. I bet thats the whole point! I bet you like 500$ thats the whole point! (and to get gas and crap)

But anyway why is my school for republicans. I mean they don't support teachers or anything. Probably wanting to please parents.

That is stupid! Ok now I'm mad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

One more thing: this republican lady at back to school night was there and the PE coach told the parents that their children were using too much bad language. and she goes: "where the hell did they get that from?" in a fake ass western accent! LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Protest.

The right of free speech exists in the first place so you can say negative things about your leader with out being punished for it. You live in America. Bush is the president not a King. And don't let anyone tell you you are un-American for going against the president.

If I was in your place I would document everything that is happening in detail. If and when things get bad (eg. punishment for expressing your rights) get a hold of your local media. If they do nothing then seek out groups that will give this the attention it deserves.

People are even being murdered and tortured today for expressing how they feel about their governments and leaders. America is the land of the free, Americans need to do their best to keep it that way.

This may explain a little why the schools are telling the students this. Perhaps its for their own protection down the line. Maybe the professors see whats coming and want to protect the students.

news.yahoo.com...

Remember,,,ideas like this always come in the guise of the trojan horse.

Trojan Horse reason to use the military for disaster response.

1 They can respond more effectively to disaster

Yeah and they can also round alot of ppl up effectively and put them in huge locked and guarded stadiums.

In Iraq they had to say "Saddam, Saddam we give out hearts and soles to you Saddam". But like America and even Nazi Germany they would often have a national flag in the classroom or at least on the compass. In England they would think this was "inconsiderate towards ethnic minorities". The only thing I would suggest is that the government print some posters of Bush and Rumsfeld (although maybe they think they would get vandalised).

Just wondering do American school kids have to sing the national anthem often? Because this would be more sophisticated and more cunning than saying "Bush, Bush we give our hearts and soles to you Bush".

Certainly in English state school I have never had to sing the anthem, but at private school we frequently had it in church.

This thread is probably better suited for the Education and Media forum.

The key word here is private. Unfortunately for you, private schools can dictate what is permissable (and what is not) as part of its guidelines and policies. They have tighter controls over the student press, curriculum, dress code and extracirricular activities. Heck, if Bob Jones University could ban interracial dating (lifted in 2000), then it should come as no surprise that private schools can circumvent First Amendment rights.

The most you can do is raise a stink about it in the media, write your congressman and state representative, or perhaps form a student movement opposing such restrictions at your school. At the very least, you'd get your point across. However, student activism could come at a high price. Don't be surprised if you find yourself called to the Headmaster's office for a little chat!
