Another canary sputters

If you've been reading the Connecticut section of this blog, you will have heard plenty about Avery Doninger, the student in Burlington, CT, who was banned from running for re-election to class office after writing a blog post critical of the school administration. In addition, students were barred from wearing T-shirts showing their support of her.

I am proud to now have a 'Team Avery' T-shirt.

Well, this isn't an isolated event. Today, I read over on the John Edwards blog as well as on DailyKos about a student who received a one day in school suspension for wearing a John Edwards T-Shirt.

As I've posted in both places, students around the country need to gather together to fight to maintain their basic freedoms.
