Teenage Student Whistleblower Who Took Photos of GA High School Opening-Suspended.

I was just informed that the student who took these pictures from inside of the school has been suspended.

?s=20

Breaking—the teenage student who whistle blew and took the photos of the Georgia high school without much masks—was just suspended by school. Terrible optics on part of the school.

?s=20

On Wednesday, the school addressed the controversy that had swirled around the viral photograph via an intercom announcement from North Paulding High School principal Gabe Carmona. In it, according to two people familiar with the situation, he stated that any student found criticizing the school on social media could face disciplinary consequences.

1. Wait until the Covid cases start piling up. The kid will be vindicated big time.

In the meantime, an enterprising attorney should help the family win some college tuition because of this.

Attending from home because they "have to".
Could have been a clever way around being there in the test tube.

16. Yet these types of pictures appear in Yearbooks every year ...

Also, a lot of the pictures don't show the students faces.
So who's privacy are we violating if we can recognize their faces?

I believe they are being suspended for making the school administrators look bad.

50. Could be no phone or picture policy

Could be no phone or picture policy. Crappy way of handling it through.
School I taught at had a no phone policy and teachers were supposed to take them and
turn the phone into the office to be picked up by the parent at the end of the day.

I would see some walking down the hall way on their way to class and just say "come on you know better"
and they would put them away. In my class I would only take them if they gave me a hard time
or lie to me they had them out. I would just say the same as above. 99.9 percent were good at
just following the rule after that.

If they really needed to use the phone I would tell them to ask me first before they took them out, during break, and told
them if I gave them permission I'm the one that would take the fall and not them. If they did it on their own
and tried to hide it at the time, I let them know that we would both take the fall and there would be
no forgiveness for any one after that. Lots of times I would just take them to my office and
let them use my office phone if they needed to call their parents. Kids got really good at following my rules
since they found them reasonable. I think I took 3 phones in six years.

I mean, I'm happy for them; they're out of the petri dish.

But how is this legal? Kids take pictures of their classmates all the time. Nobody was doing anything they weren't being forced to do... go to class, be in the halls between classes, and be around their classmates.

This student simply took a picture of what is happening in their school, under the governor's aegis, and is being punished for it? And the governor isn't?

14. How is it even possible to blow a whistle with your mask on?

Sorry, didn't mean to make light of this.

I live in Georgia and what you see here is playing out all over this area of the state. Suburban whites thinking that whiteness is their get out of coronavirus free card.

The fallout from this miscalculation cannot be overstated. Death is coming soon to north Georgia. It will visit students and parents and extended family. It will decimate the churches.

And somehow, some way, Joe Biden will be held responsible. Mark my words.

I hope I survive it. I hope this nice cloth mask helps. God I hope it helps.

Not trying to further make light of the situation... I just thought I would do the experiment.

You DON'T criticize turd policy in "Jawjuh". You WILL be punished. They are willing to shit on the constitution to support the turd (no pun intended), in Jawjuh.

This kid is learning a great civics lesson.

As another poster pointed out, when the virus starts spreading this student will become prescient.

18. Given the stupidity of the adults "in" authority as opposed to being "an authority," suspension

is a badge of honor and probably will save his life.

He didn't get "discipline." He got undisciplined discipline.

As a 35 year veteran of high school teaching, I'm proud of him and hope he's okay with it all.

28. Next student who wants to post photos like this should indicate how happy happy happy they are...

...to be back in school with all their friends.

Let the viewers draw their own conclusions and post their own negative comments, which they will.

Meanwhile, back in the US Soviet school system, it will be hard to punish a student who claims to be happy to be in a shoulder to shoulder crowd wearing no masks.

Damn all Trumpistas.

Tinker v. Des Moines states that students have rights of free speech.

The principal will lose a major law suit and if I were his liability insurance company, I would fight payment as gross negligence usually nullified those contracts.
