Student Suspended for Speaking Native American Language – ICTMN.com.

I found a link to this on Tumblr, and it just beggars belief really.

Does it even really matter in the grand scheme of things if a 12 year old is passing on rude words in her native language to her friends? It’s distasteful, yes, but also very much what 12 year olds do. If the teacher is really worried, she should have enquired as to the language and researched the worrisome words, not banned it’s use outright.

I really wish people would think more about what they’re doing sometimes.

  1. I agree, very well said. Admittedly, I used to do that – big fan of languages, so I used to teach myself – with good words and bad… but so did everyone else, and no one cared. No one got hurt by it either, and the overreactions of Supposedly Responsible Adults are only getting worse.
