Can Students Be Disciplined For Off Campus Conduct??

Legal Blog Watch ran a very interesting story entitled Can Students Be Disciplined For Off Campus Conduct?
This article cites to two other blogs and briefly discusses a few cases. There is actually a growing body of law on this issue and one of my students wrote a law review article on this exact topic and it appears in the June 2008 St. John's Law Review.
The issue arises when a student threatens or speaks inappropriately about a teacher or an administrator outside of school. With blogs and the internet this is occurring more and more. The case law generally, but not always, permits such discipline.
Want to learn more. Take my Education Law course this Spring at St. John's Law School! We cover this issue in some detail.
