crimeandpunishment (1754306) writes "Is it a student's right to free speech or a school's right to discipline? A U.S. Appeals Court in Pennsylvania heard arguments Thursday on a case that could have far-reaching implications. The issue involves the suspension of two students, from two different Pennsylvania districts, for Web postings they made on their home computers. The students posted parody profiles on Myspace that mocked their principals. The American Civil Liberties Union argued on behalf of the students."
