Interesting Judgement Call

Should a teacher be able to require students, as part of the correct answer on a quiz, to denigrate the President?

I think this goes a bit beyond the First Amendment. I share my views all the time but my students are never required to share them--especially as part of their grade.

Read the story here. Figures that it would happen in a little university town.

If I was a kid in that moron's class, I would simply "correct" the wording on his quizzes by crossing out "the president" and replacing it with "my teacher." See how he'd like it. :-)

That would be disrespectful and probably get the kid suspended or in detention or something.

I wonder what, if anything, happened to the teacher in this case.
