    School Censorship

    Linda Kane the adviser for Naperville's student newspaper was fired for refusing to go along with what she viewed as school censorship of the newspaper. She was quoted as saying that the admin. doesn't know squat about the First Amendment. (hence the firing) ... In an ironic twist, just days after her firing, Principal Jim Caudill plagiarized a commencement speech.


    Amid the rush at the end of the school year, Linda Kane's reassignment at Naperville Central High School looks like little more than a routine staff shuffle.

    After serving as student newspaper adviser for 19 years, when she moved the Central Times from life support to national prominence, Kane is leaving that role.

    But it isn't voluntary. She was fired as adviser effective Thursday, the last day of school, although she will continue to teach.

    Reminds me of the quote: "Oh well, I wasn't using my civil liberties anyway! "
