Yep, that's right. If we simply say this is someone elses' problem, then, yeah, that's pretty much it. We will go down...right along with the kids in the West Bend School District.
When I say "we", I mean EVERYONE. Everyone = MR., MRS., MS. WISCONSIN CITIZEN. And we can go a step further, which would be appropriate in this case. Everyone = ALL U.S. CITIZENS.
If Wisconsin State Administrative Code PI9 does not get shunned and changed, it is US who will pay the consequences. When we allow a State to declare NO FREEDOM OF SPEECH IN OUR SCHOOL SYSTEM, then we begin to allow classification of the people who ARE NOT allowed to exercise what is rightfully theirs. This Administrative Code basically DISALLOWS ALL STUDENTS to exercise Freedom of Speech, which, according to our U.S. Constitution, CANNOT and SHOULD NOT be taken away by ANYONE. (Keeping it simple here.)
So, yeah, this is pretty much the nutshell version. I'll be throwing some legalese your way in case you are interested. I'll catch you up on what has been done and sent so far. But in the meantime, be forewarned. This is not MY problem. It is not the STUDENT'S problem. This is OUR problem.
