Very good article; TobiSGD!

The teacher/Karen ought to be ashamed of herself.
This Karen reminds me of Queen Jezebel-
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jezebel
Some folks like (Jezebel)can not stand for others to have anything that is good.

Students that were suspended for sharing Ubuntu disks is absurdly ridiculous!

Very curious how this pans out over time.

Speaking as a teacher let me ask you what would you do?

I'm sure the religious imagery you have attached to that is unintentional.

Depends on the rules of the school system and the school/personnel involved I would think. I know in the state I am in in Australia kids are not allowed to share computer disks/flash drives or programs because of the possibility to maliciously infect someone else's PC. AnonymousOS comes to mind.

Yes it would be. Why don't you take a look through his archives and see if he finishes this story that started 4 years ago.

Yes, religiousness was ; unintentional.

If I were a teacher I most certainly would not restrict or stop my students from learning Linux. I would educate myself and gain the knowledge of Linux and give it freely to my students. Unless of course; the Universtity makes it clear that my employment would be terminated if I partook in giving this knowledge of Linux to my students. When the only way of survivial is threatened one tends to heed the word.

It should not be a crime for anyone to use Linux (that's what it seems like in the article) and our children should be allowed to choose any OS they want.

I'm not certain of the rules in which the state I reside in; the local public schools but I see teens everyday sharing laptops on their porches outside of my home everyday.
What the kids here can't do in school I've observed that they do after school but I don't honestly know if Linux is used in the local schools that are around me-

The law may not give you that opportunity. You may be allowed to inform students that Linux is available but legally you may not be able to use such a position of trust to give it out.

I'll grant that the teacher appeared to be uninformed but giving her credit she did say she would research the issue. The end result of that research is not posted as far as I can tell in that blog. To me the issue seems to be over zealousness. She was doing, as far as I can tell, her job. She confiscated articles she believed were illegal. She wrote a letter that showed she was uninformed but said she would check it out (and that if it was illegal would use the law to its full extent). To be absolutely honest if a kid comes to school in my state of Australia with an illegal item that the parent knew about it would be required that the teacher does exactly that

Correct me if I am wrong but from what I can tell in the USA what people do in their own property is up to them, what they do in a communal (i.e. a school) area is restricted.

Somethings are restricted indeed and in some cases prohibited.
You mentioned:
"you may not be able to use such a position of trust to give it out."Your probably right but I would still try. There is a degree of reward to helping others and a sense of fullfilment-

There is word in town that soon folks will not be able to gather together in their own houses to partake in certain activities/practices. So I was informed by a much older person yesterday that I highly respect.

I will have to do research on this but it is possible I suppose that the Government can make it so that we can't do certain (weekly practices; ie:congregate and come togther to talk about things; practice Yoga, or certain other hobbies) things in our homes.

I hope that using our computers wether we use Linux or Windows doesn't become restriced and or prohibited. Do you think it could come to that?
