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