Default School Discpines middle school student for "I love you"

This is right up the alley of censorship etc that we were just discussing ... who says WHAT is inappropriate ...


Middle school player benched for a game for saying ‘I love you’ in native language

A unique language controversy has led to a wide-ranging apology from the Catholic Diocese of Green Bay after a middle school girls basketball player at Shawano (Wis.) Sacred Heart School was reprimanded in class and kept out of one of her team's games because she told her friends "I love you," in the tongue of her family's Native American tribe.

All I have to say about the above story is that it happened at a private school, if you don't like their rules change schools...

That is the beauty of a private school, if you do not agree with their policies you do not have to attend, no one is putting a gun to your head and making you go to a Private Catholic school...

Not a blind eye, a Libertarian belief, if you don't like the service you receive go some where else...

As I would be, the student's parents are in total disagreement.

I can only guess since I don't have first hand knowledge of that school's policies, but I'd be that 'service' and/or 'policy' was not what the parents paid for nor is it why they chose the school.

Than they have every right to take their kids out of that school.....

This girl both knows and speaks English.

The fact that the teacher was required to write an apology letter (never mind the backhanded passive aggressive manner in which she wrote it) tells me that the girl probably didn't break any school policies, so the fact that this was a private school is also irrelevant.

As a parent and a consumer I would be outraged not by the incident itself, although I don't understand what exactly the girl did wrong, but the childish way the teacher responded. I would probably consider taking my business to a place where they didn't keep teachers such as her in their employ. Her lack of grace in her response really bugs me.

And yes, I am more offended by her actions than that of the Wando teacher, even though I concede that he clearly broke the rules.

I, for one, am ok with students speaking a foreign language. I mean if it is just one sentence then I think it would be acceptable, but if it is all the time, then the child would have to speak english(provided that they were not in ESL or anything else that would permit them from doing so)

Welcome to the education forum!

A non-story as far as I'm concerned. The teacher overreacted and apologized.
