The blogger police

A school system in Illinois apparently does not have enough to do in the teaching our kids department, and is now going to start reading student blogs to make sure the kids don't write something "inappropriate."

I think this school system has lost its mind. Students that write blogs outside of school have every right to do so, and if anyone should be monitoring what the kids are writing, it is parents, not the school system. The school is trying to get students to sign a pledge agreeing that they can be discplined if the school decides they have written something administrators don't like.

This is patently illegal. I hope parents tell their kids not to sign the pledge, and if the school tries to coerce the students into doing so, the school system should be sued.
