Student Suspended For Mocking Teacher on YouTube

Now we’ve got classroom fun for all the world to see. A student has gotten in some trouble by recording classroom mischief and posting it on YouTube. He was suspended for it, and now they want the courts to sort out the punishment given by the school. The school’s authority should be upheld by the court, but in this day and time it’s doubtful it will happen. Technology certainly mixes up things doesn’t it?

But aren’t the students just putting into real life what they see in the movies/television? Well, that’s another discussion.

    I agree with you, Elbert, on this – that students are merely uploading what they ‘caught’ in real life. But it may be a lil different (legally) if a whole cast of actors were used to “act the mock”. Anyway Youtube should stand firm when it comes to reasonable and responsible expression through videos.

    Keep up your good blog! 🙂
