Call Dianne Kelly Superintendent of Schools in Revere MA about disciplining a student for exercising freedom of speech

This woman is banning a high school cheerleader from cheering for tweeting her opinion about low voter turnout for mayor, saying "If you're going to stand up and say something that other people will find offensive- than you need to be prepare to deal with the ramifications of that."

The student had tweeted:

"When only 10 percent of Revere votes for mayor cause the other 90 percent isn't legal".

Maybe people would like to telephone the superintendent and remind her that if there are official sanctions for expressing an opinion then that's not freedom of speech.

Full story here.
