ResistanceMedia Poll: Should Schools Be Able To Censor Student Online Speech?

Recently, controversy has arisen over aggressive school monitoring and censorship of their students' online speech, through blogs, social networks, forums, and other 
means.


UPDATE: several individuals have mentioned "sexting", harassment, and other actions that are illegal. This poll is NOT referring to illegal activities. If you believe that public school students can be punished for online speech, but only if it is illegal, please vote a flat NO. 
Now until July 21, 2016, vote in the ResistanceMedia poll on this important issue! 


New FCPS "Student Responsibilities" Regulation Could Be Worse than Imagined

New FCPS "Student Responsibilities" Regulation Could Be Worse than Imagined, School Board Member Exposes Policy as Threat to Free Speech

On June 9, the Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) school board voted 10-2 to force Fairfax County Public Schools students to sign a document declaring their support for "transgender rights." However, the totalitarian new policy may go even further than that, as a sitting school board member (Elizabeth Schultz of Springfield) has publicly stated that the new policy could lead to expulsions as a result of online or other speech criticizing the transgender ideology. 

Recently, national political news website Breitbart.com ran an expose which included quotes from sitting school board member Elizabeth Schultz which expose the threat that this policy poses to student free speech. 

The article appears below (emphasis added by ResistanceMedia):

Ryan McElveen -- The Supreme Cosmic Emperor of Fairfax County

On December 9, 2013, a snowstorm affected Fairfax County. The snow accumulated around 2-4 inches, which meant that the decision from the school board regarding a snow day could go either way. That afternoon, Ryan McElveen and the other school board members met to decide whether or not to close school the following day. At approximately 5:30 pm, the board made their decision. Ryan McElveen announced the school board's decision at 5:47 pm, before the official announcement was made. 20 minutes later, the school board made their official announcement over Twitter. 
For this single act, students immediately fell to the ground before their great emperor, distributing ridiculous edited images comparing the corrupt school board member to Jesus, a professional boxing champion, Superman, and Barack Obama (although the last comparison is hardly a compliment!)

On June 9, the Fairfax School Board voted to not only fully implement the new "Gender identity" policy, but also to include it in their "Student Rights and Responsibilities" handbook and to FORCE STUDENTS TO SIGN THEIR AGREEMENT TO THE POLICY IN ORDER TO BE ALLOWED TO ATTEND SCHOOL. The school board member who was largely responsible for this whole issue, not just the policy but the dishonest and corrupt way it was implemented, is at-large school board member Ryan McElveen. 

This recent incident, where the policy "update" was introduced, voted on, and approved without any chance for members of the public to present their views, is not the first time that Ryan McElveen has behaved unacceptably. 

When public officials overstep their electoral mandate and begin behaving in a manner unacceptable to the public, a recall election is an option. If citizens collect enough recall petition signatures, the Circuit Court wi…

FCPS Will Force Students to Sign Pro-Transgender Document

June 13, 2016

The Fairfax County School Board forced through a controversial policy change which will not only immediately force local schools to allow individuals to use whichever bathrooms, locker rooms, showers, and other facilities that they want, but will include those changes in the 2016-2017 "Student Rights and Responsibilities" document -- which students are required to sign in order to be allowed to attend school! 

At the June 9 school board meeting, several parents were removed from the room by the Stasi FCPS security guards.

From the (biased) Washington Post, June 10, 2016:

The Fairfax County School Board set off a furious debate when it decided to amend its student handbook to ban discrimination against transgender students, a move that angered some board members who saw the move as an 11th-hour change without proper vetting.
The board this week voted 9 to 3 to pass the amendment after a debate that stretched to three hours and led the district’s head of security to e…
