Zach Rubio, a student at Turner School District's Endeavor School in Kansas City, Kansas, was recently suspended for two days because he spoke Spanish during recess, which, among other things, is not against school policy. Despite Zach's not breaking any rules, however, the principal, Jennifer Watts, explained: "We are not in Mexico, we are not in Germany."
Where are we, Ms. Watts? Oh...I almost forgot, we're in Kansas, where the schools are dedicated to teaching nonsense, and the line separating church and state gets thinner every day.
When the superintendent got wind of this he quickly reinstated the student; meanwhile, Zach's father is still waiting for an official apology.
Note to my son, Gary (who is an assistant principal in Pennsylvania): I have total confidence in your professionalism and that of your school district!
