Ryan Biggar, 16, and his 17-year-old girlfriend had permission to leave Middle Creek High School for an off-campus program. When their event was canceled for the day, they were caught having sex in the girl's home.
Biggar's family is filing a lawsuit against the school system, saying his suspension for the rest of the school year is unconstitutional. He says he had no notice that private, consensual, off-campus sexual activity could subject him to school suspension....

The bible is not literature in the school curriculum. It doesn't belong in the classroom. Did you happen to call your sons school to find out exactly what the new rule was? Children have a habit of super-simplifying things, and I have a feeling the rule is not as absolute as he may have portrayed, or you may have portrayed here in this thread. I'm inclined to believe the rule is more like, the reading of non-curriculum literature, is not allowed in class. Been that way since I was a child. (~20 years ago) I bet some student sarcasticaly asked if the Bible was included, and the teacher said yes, because it's not in the curriculum. I'm sure these students are allowed to read any non-banned literature, between classes, during lunch, and before or after school.
I was suspended for a fight I was in even though it was after school and not on campus, a parent brought it up to the school though and guess that was enough to suspend me.
