A former senior at Garret High School in Indiana has been expelled for tweeting a statement that contained swear words multiple times. The tweet was sent at 2:30 am from Austin Carrol at 2:30 am from his home.
However, since he used a school owned computer to send the tweet, that provided the pretext for the school to exert its mandated authority to treat younger human beings as assets and to force students like Mr. Carrol to listen with his head bowed down and then apologize for doing something bad, even though all he did was express a basic human emotion.
The principal at Garret High School points out, ” . . . THEIR SYSTEM TRACKS ALL THE TWEETS ON TWITTER WHEN A STUDENT LOGS IN.” I get it, make us broke, play nice and have schools give a “gift” of a computer and track us for . . . “good” reasons, I’m sure.
Story is HERE.
Poor kid, he gets fucking expelled for being upset late at night and some robot called an educator is citing policy. I hope the lawyers have enough balls to actually take a real stance instead of some cooked up legalese that disclaims the disclaiming of liability, whole or in part – if that sounded garbled and nonsensical, that’s modern law.
