A new section of the bill states that a school may censor or punish speech if it "is directed against another student with the intent to ridicule, harass, humiliate or intimidate the other student and has a direct and negative impact on the other student's academic performance or safety in school, whether or not the speech occurs on school grounds or during school hours … "
A spectator at the hearing said there was discussion to change "another student" to "another person." But, that apparently did not happen. Thus calling a douche bag administrator a douche bag apparently is protected.
Still, it appears this new section opens a myriad of problems. What if a student ridicules a peer at the beach?
