Student Bloggers Crackdown


Elementary Students Suspended For MySpace Postings

Two students were suspended at an Oak Lawn elementary school last week after the principal discovered questionable postings on a popular Web site, parents said. The MySpace postings allegedly contained foul language, a digitally altered photo of George Bush sticking up his middle finger, pop-ups of women in bikinis and disparaging references to St. Louis De Montfort School and its staff, parents said.

Administrators asked the eighth-grade class to delete their MySpace accounts and threatened to cancel graduation or confirmation ceremonies if they did not, parents said. A boy and girl who allegedly used vulgar words were suspended for four days, parents said. They return to school today.

Guess it does not happen only in Singapore ^_^
