The editorial board of a Pennsylvania high school's newspaper voted to stop using the team's name, which is Redskins, in their publication. Regardless of what side of the issue you fall on, the 14-7 vote in favor of ceasing use of the name and the resulting editorial explaining their decision should have at least showed the school's administration that this wasn't a decision that was taken lightly.
The decision of the staff of the Neshaminy Playwickian wouldn't last though, because Principal Rob McGee told the staff that they didn't have the right to not say the word. That's right: a well-thought out, rational decision was overruled. Instead of applauding the editorial staff for making a difficult decision and thinking critically, the school's administration is vetoing their choice because.. it infringes on the free speech rights of others? Wait, what?no comments
