Read a fascinating article about a case in Connecticut where a high school student is suing to have the right to blog disparaging comments about her school administrators without repercussion from the school - click here.
Regardless of the eventual outcome, it does bear asking: what is the mom thinking?
Lauren Doninger said she wished her daughter "had used more sophisticated language," but said it was up to her, not the school board, to mete out the punishment. "It's for me to discipline her at home, not for the school."
The mom's goal is for her daughter to use more sophisticated language as she publically criticized her administrators. Good parenting there.
