A DMK Production
You are the assistant principal of the local middle school. Among your duties is discipline for the seventh graders. You have several options to you including corporal punishment. (Up to three swats with a paddle.)
Morgan Taylor is one of your seventh grade students. Morgan is a good student both academically and behaviorally. Morgan has never had any trouble at school and is at the top of his class as far as grades. Morgan is well-liked and popular among students and teachers alike. It was therefore no surprise when Morgan decided to make a run as seventh grade class president. There are two other students besides Morgan running for the same office.
Each candidate is given ten minutes on "election day" to make a speech to the assembled seventh graders. Order of the speeches is determined by drawing straws and Morgan speaks last. The other two students give basic speeches telling about how much they plan on doing to make seventh grade better. It is then Morgan's turn to speak.
Much to your shock and dismay and to the shock and dismay of the rest of the seventh grade faculty, Morgan's speech is a profanity and vulgarity laced comedy routine. Morgan speaks and his fellow classmates cheer and laugh and applaud. One of the guidance counselors supervising the assembly ushers Morgan off stage much to the disapproval of the other students.
Morgan is now in your office and you ask him to explain himself.
He says, "I wanted to be different and stand out and that sort of stuff is what people like. Anyway, it is my First Amendment right to say what I want and I don't think I did anything wrong."
How do you respond to Morgan?
(By the way, Morgan wins the election.)
