¿Cuál es incorrecto con Kansas?

No teaching of science in science class, crazy bastards claiming that the casualties in Iraq are caused by coddling homosexuality, and now suspending kids for speaking Spanish.

Jeez... take a person, take away reason and accountability, and you get that principal.....

Ha - very good. I hope they find her a nice, cozy office job. She should not be in a school.

Can you imagine this happening in Florida?

EdWonk posted on this same event, and one of his commenters brought up the content of the student's Spanish usage. In short, if it was bullying/abusive/otherwise inappropriate for school, than a suspension may have been warranted, no matter the language used. But if it was simply a case of a student using Spanish to talk to Spanish-speaking friends, then the principal was way out of line and should be disciplined.

According to the article, the student said, "No problema," to another student.
