13-year-old student writes essay, gets award, school kicks her out…

Quote: “Long story short, they took an exceptional student, with the radical idea that kids should learn to read, and put her in a school of throwaway students who are even more unmanageable than the average student in her previous school.”

All this just happened within the last month, an event which I find incredible and disturbing. Her concluding phrase in her essay that asks for students to learn, and teachers to do their part, apparently was just too much for the faculty to stand. <sarcasm> How dare she call out any educational deficiencies or encourage students to read and teachers to give their all. </sarcasm>
