Submission + - Students Face Expulsion Following Antiwar Sit-In (indymedia.org)

An anonymous reader writes: Over 70 students participated in a sit-in against the Iraq War on Thursday, November 1st at Morton West High School in Berwyn, IL. Dozens of students gathered quietly in the lunchroom and refused to leave. Administrators and police became involved immediately and locked down the school for a half hour after class ended. Those who went home or left before the protest ended at the final bell, received 3-5 days suspension. All others, an estimated 37 received 10 days suspension and expulsion papers. The Superintendent stated those who are seventeen will also face police charges. Parents are frantically trying to spare their child's expulsion. The protest came on the heels of a recent incident, when a student reported hearing that another student had a gun on campus. The school was not locked down.
