Mom suspended from son’s elementary school for warning other parents about Common Core
Godfather Politics – Dave Jolly – 4/8/2014
So what legal right does the school have for taking the actions they did in this case? As long as Christopher Duran was not disrupting his class, he has the First Amendment right to hand out the fliers his mom printed out. If they had allowed him to do so, there would not have been the confrontation between Christopher’s mom and the principal.
Did the principal have the legal right to get the police involved and issue a 14 day suspension against Katherine Duran? All she did was insist on getting back her forms that the principal illegally confiscated from her son.
School administrators and faculty so often assume a lot more authority than they legally have. They continually trample on the constitutional rights of students and then get angered when called down for their illegal actions.
This is why I advocate that every teacher and school administrator be required to take classes on the constitutional rights of student and teachers. Educators must be educated on what they can and cannot do.
