Blog and be suspended from High School

Coming out of my blog hibernation to link to this article from the Asbury Park Press, explaining how students at Pope John XIII Regional High School in Sparta, NJ were told to remove their “ accounts or similar sites with personal profiles and blogs” or their they would face suspension.

An attorney for the Electronic Frontier Foundation thinks that “the real motivation for school officials was to suppress negative comments about the school posted by students.”

What do you think? Do schools have a right to ban students from blogging?
