Antiwar Illinois high school students to be expelled?

Arthur Silber has been following the case of several dozen high school students in Berwyn, Illinois who’ve been threatened with expulsion for participating in an anti-war protest on school grounds. His first post is here. A follow up explains the five lessons the students are being taught by the adults in charge.

A Chicago Tribune story runs down the story basics, and reports that yesterday’s scheduled school board vote on whether to approve the expulsions has been postponed. They’re likely feeling the pressure of public attention. You can endorse a petition in support of the students, now with over 6,000 signatures, here.
