Since neither the girl nor her fellow students can vote, it seems somewhat provocative to begin with. My opinion is all political apparel of any sort should be banned from schools since it has no place there. My freedom of speech would allow me to wear a shirt glorifying Hitler out in public but I doubt any public school would allow it as it would be considered disruptive.
    Kids have been wearing such shirts to school for a long time. We shouldn't be mitigating what this teacher did at all. No need to punish everyone for what that one teacher did.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    It's sounds like the teacher would give a student extra credit for wearing a Che Guevara t-shirt.

    According to a news update I heard on the radio while driving today (hence, no link), the kid is back in school after the teacher gave a written apology.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

It's probably why we don't let people vote until they are 18.
    By that same idea, then any child up to the age of 26 that is still under their parents insurance shouldn’t be allowed to vote .. Nor should any college student unless he is paying his own way through college .. And has held a job .. Other wise he/she meets most of the criteria you have just set forth. for not being allowed to vote.

    Oh, please. Plenty of us to the left believe bullying is wrong outright. Hacks will be hacks, though.

    Are you telling me that if this kid had been wearing an Obama shirt, not a single righty hack would show up to blame her for the incident?

    I am saying if she was wearing an Obama shirt the incident wouldn't have happened.

    That is the difference between children (democrats) and adults (Republicans).

    Re: Teacher Ridicules Student for Romney T-Shirt

    I don't see why this is a big deal. So what the teacher made fun of her shirt? There's no systematic bullying, there was a teacher expressing her opinion, nothing more. If she wants to take a stand, expect people to react to your stance so long as they don't infringe on your rights.

    The teacher should be disciplined at all imo. This is a non-story.
    A man without fear is a fool, a man that succumbs to his fear is a coward and a brave man acknowledges fear yet presses on.

    Oh that's right... the most educated people in our society are all working to indoctrinate students into a life of liberal servitude.

    Adults my ass.

    I will go a little farther to say that if the girl was wearing an Obama shirt there wuld have been no problem with any other teacher even if that other teacher is a Romney supporter.
