'Teddy Bear Master' expulsions dropped
Posted 1h 19m ago

KNIGHTSTOWN, Ind. (AP) Three students expelled for making a movie in which
evil teddy bears attack a teacher will share $69,000 in a settlement of their
civil rights lawsuit.

The board of the Charles A. Beard School Corp. voted 5-2 on Tuesday to approve
the settlement of the lawsuit, which stemmed from the school's response to a
movie called "The Teddy Bear Master."

The expulsions will be erased from the record and the students will be allowed to
make up for missed work. Two of them still must write letters of apology to a
teacher named in the movie and his wife.

In the movie, the "teddy bear master" orders stuffed animals to kill a teacher
who had embarrassed him, but students battle the toy beasts, according to
documents filed in court.

2. As usual, not enough informatiion
- was it for a school project...in that case they are toast
- If it was for YouTube, they should have won much more

Speech outside of school is protected speech...unless it is criminal. Public schools can not impose sanctions for out of school activies.
