Should a Michigan high school have sent a boy home for wearing a T-shirt with the words “inter-national terrorist” and a picture of President Bush?

“No way. Isn’t everyone allowed freedom of speech, no matter how old they are?”
“I think it depends. Some other kids may kick his butt; I can see the safety issues involved. I don’t think I would send him home, but I can see the logic.”
“I don’t think kids care too much. Do kids see that as a threat, or as a kid standing out in the crowd?”
“I don’t think so. It’s not a cigarette or beer logo or anything like that, it’s just the kid’s opinion. If it was making a ruckus in class, maybe, but if not, no.”
