Wait a minute before you slam a teacher for something possibly taken out of context. First, was this class Math? Social Studies? Gym? Why is she teaching her native tongue to another student IN class? Why not at lunch or at break or in the halls? As an educator, I would like to remind everyone there is a time and place for socializing and a time when it is inappropriate in any language. She wasn't suspended for speaking a different dialect, she was suspended for her attitude. If she was asked not to speak in class and she responded like I have seen students her age respond, I have no doubt this is the real reason for suspension and not the phony excuse used to rile up the public.
