Is suspension an appropriate consequence?

This student is fighting suspension in grad school for off campus reckless driving.

Seems a bit over the top to me unless there is more here than we are being told. What do you think?


Don’t type it if it’s about your job

Just in the last month (or a little over) there have been suspensions on multiple levels in education over facebook comments.

1. Student suspended for starting a page (apparently hateful) about teacher. Students who fanned page got after school suspension. article

2. NC teacher suspended for venting about student situation. My Post

3. College prof suspended for making what her employers thought were inappropriate comments. article

OK folks, if it’s about your school or the people that you interact with on campus and it’s not glowing, just don’t type it.
