The ACLU is defending 3 girls after they have been expelled over a facebook conversation that ended with them discussing which of their classmates they would kill. The ACLU states that the conversation was normal "teenage banter" and could not have been interpreted seriously. The school states the girls behavior violated the schools policy bullying, harassment and intimidation.
The girls are allowed to take tests and will be able to graduate 9th grade, but the ACLU talks about how one parent has had to spend $1,000 on home schooling. What do you think is the ACLU over reaching or is it really a freedom of speech case?
I think the school was right to expel these girls, and why in the world would they think that it's anyones problem but the parents to cover the cost of alternative schooling? What do you think?
