Censorship in Jeffersonville
A critical student newspaper article offends a local principal. He imposes a censorship policy. He also tries to punish students for what they post on Facebook. The journalism teacher/ newspaper's faculty advisor is berated in front of her students, and ultimately suspended. Lawsuit ensues. Lawyers for the Plaintiff say she was suspended "in retaliation for her protected speech and activities as outlined above, including her opposition to the illegal policies proposed by the defendants, her union activities, and her support for students who opposed censorship".
