Teacher Punished for Telling Students About Rights

Post by grayman »

Yeah it's Fox News, but still...

Teacher Punished for Telling Students About Constitutional Rights
An Illinois high school teacher was punished by a local school district after he warned students about the Constitutional rights before answering a school-mandated survey about emotional and at-risk behavior.

...“I advised my students that they had a Fifth Amendment right not incriminate themselves,” Dryden told a local newspaper. “It was not my intention for them not to take the survey.”
Batavia School Superintendent Jack Barshinger told Fox News what the teacher did was against the rules.

School admins are known for their desire to keep people ignorant of the Third Amendment.

Can't have the kiddies thinking they have rights. they might grow up into adult citizens who think they have rights, and that just won't do.
