Inside Four Walls: Girl Suspended for wishing her teacher dead

...and surprisingly she is suspended by the school. Not surprisingly though, the mom thinks the punishment is too harsh.
Dell'isola said she agreed that the post was offensive but thought the punishment was extreme and her daughter was entitled to free speech. 
"In hindsight, she's mortified that she said that, but she's a 13-year-old kid," Dell'isola said.  Dell'isola said she usually monitors her daughter's use of the social networking website but found out about the post when she received a phone call from the school's principal. She said a parent of one of the girl's friends reported the comment. 
The concerned mother was urging the school to remove her daughter from class and give her a private math tutor instead of the suspension. 
"You are denying her an education based on something she did at home. That's my business, not your business," Dell'isola said.
So if someone wished her daughter dead, do you think she would say that was "freedom of speech"? Once again a parent is making excuses for their children, instead of teaching them right & wrong.
