Student suspended for saying "Bless you" in U.S. classroom

If you want to know why so many parts of this nation are in such terrible trouble, look no farther than your nearest public school.

In Dyer County, TN, a classroom in the high school lists banned expressions--things the teacher has said you can't say in class.

One of those things is "Bless you."

Last week, after a student sneezed in class, senior Kendra Turner said "Bless you."

The teacher sent her to the principal's office, and she spent the rest of the day in in-school detention.

Her parents--understandably incense--demanded a meeting with the administration.  The teacher claimed--what a surprise--that Turner was being disruptive and aggressive.

Everyone else in the school district is ducking requests for comment.
