"ACLU Defends Student Who Called Teacher 'Douche Bag' on Facebook" 
By Peter Jamison

January 31, 2011

Facts and excerpts (see news article cited directly above):

  • Fact: The school suspended the student for cyberbullying. 
  • Excerpt: The American Civil Liberties Union wrote a letter to school officials asserting that disciplining a student for exercising free speech, so long as the speech isn't wreaking havoc with school functions, is an unconstitutional act. 
  • Fact: After the school received the letter from the ACLU, the school erased the suspension from the student's record.


  • Know your rights so that you can defend yourself against abuse of power.
