Monday, Tuesday, happy days...

Ah, teenagers. They sure do make life interesting.

If the Larsons' claims are supported by others, the matter could be referred for possible discipline to the Office of Professional Practices in the state Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction.

If the allegations are legit, what are the chances that any discipline would also be aimed at the administrators who allegedly ignored the Larsons' complaints?

"I forgot to thank my wonderful choir teacher, Ms. Noakes, for all that she's taught me these past couple of years, like always knowing what to say in any situation, like...," Larson began, then let fly a stream of expletives and obscenities she said Noakes regularly used in class.

F*&%-ing awesome.

(If her allegation is true, anyway.)

Too funny.

Ah, graduation time. It always brings out the courage in students.

This kind of stuff drives me crazy. Awesome? Funny? Is that the kind of message you want to send to your kids? She's a punk, and if her parents knew she was going to do that, I feel sorry for her. Nice parenting.

"Is that the kind of message you want to send to your kids?"

Send a message my kids that they should stand up for themselves when those in authority fail them? Hell yes.

Not to say that I would teach them that this sort of public attack is anything but a last resort.* And I doubt they'll end up being terribly offended by a bit of cussing. But if my kids grow up to stand courageously for what they believe to be justice, full willing to accept whatever consequences that may bring, then I'll be very, very proud of them.

[*: If this kid is lying, of course, she's unleashed a massive injustice. But I have a hunch she's being truthful.]
