[Cincinnati]  A Waynesville High School student sued in federal court Tuesday after school officials refused to let him wear a T-shirt with the slogan “Jesus Is Not A Homophobe.” Maverick Couch wants to wear the shirt in his Warren County school on April 20 to show support for the Day of Silence, a national event that draws attention to the silencing of gay and lesbian students through bullying. Couch’s lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in Cincinnati, immediately became part of a decades-long fight over how to balance the First Amendment rights of students and the rights of school administrators to enforce rules and impose discipline. Couch, 17, said he tried to wear the shirt last spring for the Day of Silence and on several other occasions, but school Principal Randy Gebhardt repeatedly rejected his request. School officials could not be reached, but Couch said he was told the shirt was not permitted because it was “indecent and sexual in nature.” His attorney, Christopher Clark, said Couch tried for months to resolve the dispute without going to court, but school officials wouldn’t budge. Clark said administrators initially said the shirt was disruptive and later that it was too religious. He said they now claim it violates rules prohibiting clothing that is indecent or sexual in nature. Couch said he has been the victim of teasing and name-calling at school, but he said any bullying he’s experienced has never become physical. He said he wants to wear the shirt to show support for other gay students who do suffer from severe bullying.

I broke down a similar situation a couple of weeks ago in rather genius fashion, so it’s fair to say I’m a reliable pundit on gays and their First Amendment rights.  In the end, I’m once again going to side with the administration on this one – but for a different reason.  I don’t think the shirt is ‘indecent and sexual in nature’ at all.  I also don’t see how this is supportive of other gay students who are taunted & beat up.  Regardless, I don’t believe Maverick Couch (seriously?) should be allowed to wear this shirt at all – let alone in school.   (more…)

[Orlando Sentinel]  A Eustis Middle School teacher resigned after she made a comment about a student’s cleavage in front of the classroom. Joan Bannister, a 53-year-old math teacher, drew attention to the girl’s cleavage and said she would be out of dress code if the girl were measured, according to a memo from Lake County Schools. The girl filed a complaint saying that on Jan. 30 Bannister approached her with a ruler and said the math teacher wanted to measure her exposed “boobage.” In the memo, Bannister denied ever using the word “boobage” but admitted to having a conversation with the girl about her being out of compliance with the dress code. She said she never touched the girl, but “could have handled the situation better,” according to the memo. The district recommended her a five-day unpaid suspension that she never served because she requested a hearing. Bannister resigned in lieu of the hearing, which was scheduled for Monday. District spokesman Chris Patton said the district will be forwarding the complaint to the state Office of Professional Practices that oversees teacher discipline. According to the state’s educator code of ethics, Bannister should not have intentionally exposed any student to embarrassment or disparagement. “I think it’s an unfortunate incident, and I hope the investigation brings it to a close,” Patton said.

Kudos to Joan Bannister.  I don’t know how teachers do it nowadays.  Chicks 16 going on 26 cramming their boobage in your face regardless of the dress code is tough to handle on a daily basis.  She simply got up close & personal with her ruler to measure a pair of cans under the intent of rules enforcement – but something changed.  That tingly feeling in your granny panties isn’t anything to be ashamed of, Joan.   (more…)

[iol] The world’s first international sex school has opened in Austria and claims it will teach students how to be better lovers, a report said. But far from being a cheap thrill, one term at the International Sex School in Vienna will cost pupils £1 400 (more than R18 000). According to orange news, Swedish-born headmistress Ylva-Maria Thompson says anyone over the age of 16 can enrol at what she describes as “the world’s first college of applied sexuality”. Students live in a mixed sex dormitory block where they’re expected to practise their homework. “Our core education is not theoretical, but very practical. The emphasis is on how to be a better lover,” the new school head added. “Sexual positions, caressing techniques, anatomical features. And we teach people hands on.” Raunchy adverts showing a couple making love have already been banned by Austrian TV, the report said “This is wrapped up in a very stylish way but it is just selling sex,” one protestor commented.

I don’t want anyone getting the wrong idea here. As everyone knows, I’m a happily married man. I have no desire to fly out to central Europe just to bang some exotic young coeds with their sexy accents and tight bodies. Their pouty faces, sexual deviance and ability to talk dirty to me in a language I don’t even understand do absolutely nothing for me. All I’m trying to do is be a better husband, which means being a better lover. I’m sure this comes as a shock to most of you, (more…)

[KomoNews]  A local sixth-grader with special needs was pulled out of class and reportedly forced to mow the school lawn as a punishment. Alice Ott Middle School student, 11-year-old Kyron Sloan, has ADD, Asperger’s and maybe a medical condition, which doctors are still trying to figure out, causing him to sleep. Sloan’s mother, Kristi Sloan-Ceron, said her son’s counselor decided his punishment for falling asleep in class should be to mow the lawn. But the counselor never asked her first. “I’m sleeping in class because I’m really tired in the mornings,” Sloan said Monday. “Because I sleep in class I try to keep myself awake, drink water, walk around school (and) stand up. I try everything to keep myself awake.” So his counselor at the Southeast Portland middle school reportedly came up with an unconventional punishment. “Every morning I get pulled out of my homeroom to go mow the lawn,” Sloan said. “We use those push mowers, which is really frustrating. And when I mow the lawn, I sneeze a lot because I have allergies and it’s really frustrating for me. I didn’t know what I did. I tried to keep myself awake, but I feel like I didn’t deserve this kind of treatment.” “He’s 11 years old – a child with a disability – you cannot punish a child for having a disability,” said Sloan-Ceron. His mother just found out this was happening to her son. She said she’s especially frustrated because even with an individualized education plan, her son is struggling academically. “No child should be out mowing the lawn when they’re supposed to be inside the classroom getting an education,” she said. Sloan said he feels like he’s being bullied. “I think that’s not a punishment. I think that’s being a bully,” he said.

I’m sorry, what was that mom?  He’s supposed to be inside the classroom getting an education?  Maybe I’m misunderstanding something, but snoring with your fat forehead on your desk isn’t exactly an exemplary way to absorb knowledge.  Trust me, if it was I wouldn’t be hunting-and-pecking these inane posts from my mom’s basement iB headquarters all day.   (more…)

[CBC]  Students at an east-end Toronto school are being told to leave their soccer balls — and other hard balls — at home. The principal of Earl Beatty Public School banned the balls this week after a parent recently suffered a concussion from being hit in the head with a soccer ball. The principal, Alicia Fernandez, banned hard balls, claiming they’re dangerous. “Kids were coming in complaining of injury, or being scared,” she said. The ban went into effect two weeks ago. Students can bring sponge or other soft balls to play with, but soccer balls, footballs, baseballs and even tennis balls are not allowed for safety reasons. But some parents say the ban is excessive and unfair to children who like to play outside. “I wasn’t surprised personally,” said Diana Symonds who has a son going to the school. “My husband freaked right out. He thought, this is absolutely insane.” Chris Stateski, who has a son in Grade 2 and a daughter in Grade 4 at the school, said he was “disgusted” to hear about the ban, which he felt was an overreaction. “A lot of things could happen. A child could trip on the asphalt, a child could fall off the monkey bars and break their arm,” said Stateski, who also has a three-year-old. “So many things could happen. What are they going to do — cover the schoolyard in pillows and take all the doors off the hinges?” “It’s just too much.” Stateski said Wednesday he felt bad for the woman who was hurt, but he doesn’t feel the whole school should be penalized for one incident. “Unfortunately, it was an accident and accidents do happen,” he said, adding he doesn’t think the playground is that small.

Well when you walk out to a 2nd grade orgy by the swing set, you got no one else to blame but yourself Principal Fernandez.  What other options do they have at recess now?  No balls?  Why?  I don’t get why the kids have to sit outside and twiddle their thumbs.  They’re not hurting each other.   (more…)

[RecordNet]  A Lincoln Unified School District teacher has been placed on paid leave amid allegations she was operating pornographic websites on a school computer with a Stockton police officer as her partner. District officials confiscated the school-issued Apple laptop of Heidi Kaeslin, a special-education teacher at Lincoln High, about one month ago. Kaeslin, 35, has been replaced by a long-term substitute teacher. Lincoln Unified has hired a computer expert to perform a forensic study of the laptop. A written report is expected this week, said attorney Chet Quaide, who is representing Lincoln Unified. Based on the report, Uslan will recommend to the Lincoln Unified board whether action – including possibly firing Kaeslin – is warranted. Action could come as soon as December’s board meeting. The investigation centers around allegations Kaeslin and Richard Fields, 51, an officer assigned by the Stockton Police Department to Lincoln High, were using the computer to support several for-profit websites, most of them adult. Fields retired from the police force in May. The sites include RandHentertainment.com, 360pig.com, teachertitties.com and mysluttyteachers.com.

Heidi, why the fuck are you taking all your sites down?!!?  This is the pub you needed for your porn career to skyrocket!  Now’s the time to capitalize.  I mean why start operating TeacherTitties.com in the first place if you’re just gonna fold in the face of free nationwide advertising?  The idea is genius, really.  (more…)

[Chicago]  A teacher at a suburban Christian school has been charged with a felony, after he was fired for allegedly masturbating behind a podium while teaching class. As CBS 2′s Dana Kozlov reports, Schaumburg police said he might have been doing it for the past 10 years or more. Paul LaDuke, 75, has been charged with sexual exploitation of a child. LaDuke has been a math teacher at the school for 26 years. On Friday, a student at Schaumburg Christian School reported to another teacher that LaDuke appeared to be masturbating while seated at his podium during class. The teacher notified the school administration, which launched an internal investigation. LaDuke was fired on Friday and, on Monday, school officials contacted Schaumburg police. Detectives interviewed several students and LaDuke was arrested on Monday. Investigators determined that, while seated at a podium in class on Friday, LaDuke unzipped and lowered his pants and masturbated while students were present in the classroom. Police said there is no evidence that LaDuke touched any students in an inappropriate manner or harmed them physically.

Who is this rat?  Hey bitch why are you hawking this dude’s junk while in class?  Does he stare down your tits as he teaches?  Well…OK so maybe that’s what he’s beating off to.  Or maybe he’s getting his stroke on because some slut student keeps eyeballing his cock.  Classic ‘chicken or the egg’ scenario here. Regardless of the cause, though, one fact you can extract from this alleged masturbatory maestro is that being an old man is a motherfucker.   (more…)
