It's only a very, very small step between telling a student he may not use the N-word, and telling him what political or religious beliefs he is not allowed to express.
Those on the left have a pretty solidly-established history of trying to suppress the expression of beliefs and opinions that they find disagreeable. To allow schools the authority that you advocate amounts to openly inviting abuse of that authority.

The five great lies of the
We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.
I dunno, where I was in Chicago, if every kid that used the "N" word was put off sports teams or out of school, the areas schools would lose 80% of their students - and those remaining would be 95% white.

Not only no, but hell no. Yes they are inconsiderate and ignorant trains of thought, but the SCOTUS has deemed that the Unites States Constitution has limited hate speech to only certain utterances that incite riot and/or violence. This, as much as I dislike it, gives groups like the KKK, the Nazi Party, and the Black Panthers alike all certain rights to profess what they believe without the fear of executive reprisal, which is fundamental to preserving everyone's freedom.
