Awesome! I can't believe school districts today. I mean, I work for two, but I still can't stand them!

I do have a Question though, In the article they talked about the ACLU sending a letter to the superintendent stating it was a breech of his Rights. I was always taught that Children under the age of X (I want to say 18) don't have the same rights we (Above 18er's) do. That is the reason they have to be signed in and out of school. I think I may be wrong though. :shrug: Either way, This kid did a great job and I'm glad he got an award for it.

I'm not sure just how it works. I don't think an under 18 year old would have the same rights, but they certainly have some rights.

The ACLU says his freedom of speech had been stepped on. last I read there is no age limit in the Constitution regarding who it applies to?
