A teacher were to have a bumper sticker on his or her car
which read: "War with Iraq. NO!" OR one which read "Let's
kick Iraqi a$$"." Would said teacher be required to remove
said bumper sticker? Would the teacher be able to park on
school property where students might be able to see the
bumper sticker? Where does a teacher's own civil rights
end and begin?

What if I live in the same small town where I teach and I
choose to post a huge political campaign sign in my yard
(which I did during the last election mind you) where the
world can see it including my literate students? What if
they asked me about said sign? Even if I refuse to discuss
it on school property (which I do) the students (because
they are literate and thoughtful) might know exactly where
I stand on the war issue and our esteemed president. What

Typical junk logic. The ends do not justify the means. You
don't have the right to abuse children simply becuase you don't
agree with a POSSIBLE war. Every citizen has restraints on
their freedom of speech w.r.t. their profession. You can't walk
