In Lake Central High School in St. John, Indiana students staged a sit-in over the school's failure to acknowledge a student's suicide. Of note is the fact the principle responds to their protest by saying he's "in charge" and ordering everyone to get out their IDs, basically acting like a two-bit thug cop. After one student makes a snarky comment that he's "disappointed" in the principle, he then orders the student be arrested, to which the lackey cops present immediately oblige.
From the Sun-Times:
ST. JOHN — The principal of Lake Central High School is calling a sit-in students held over the suicide of one of its former students “a disruption” and “not the right way” to handle the situation.Considering he's legally an adult, those are serious charges for which he could potentially face jail time.
The students who participated in the sit-in were dismissed from the building, and their teachers were instructed to mark them as absent, Tobias said.Why didn't Tobias talk to the student who said he was "disappointed in him" about his feelings rather than create a disruption by ordering him arrested? If that's how he feels, why not lead by example?
Fact is, as former New York State Teacher of the Year John Taylor Gatto has noted, our public schools mirror prisons and dissent is not tolerated.
