Then why did you even say that then? I respect the Constitution and freedom of speech as much as the next American and maybe more, but just because I think something people say is stupid doesn't mean I think we should completely throw the First Amendment out of the window and tell people what they can and can't say like this is North Korea.
nope you didnt
You don't know that, and does this really matter? I'm not trying to turn this into a culture war, somebody said something and got illogically punished by some D-bag teacher....the world around me is crumbling :shk:
so lets switch up the words what if the student said to another one
wa alaikum assalaam ? or "Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh"
nothing would have been done and the student would not have been punished

doesn't sound like the whole class was horsing around. He is the only one who was punished.
I've been saying "Bless you" for well over 50 years.
For that drastic bit of discipline perhaps he should have said "F*** you"! instead and earned the punishment.

As a teacher, shouldn't his passion lie in educating children. Why can't he rather take a step forward and teach the kids simple respect, and maybe open their eyes to the true meaning of what it means to actually bless someone?
