What does Yertle the Turtle have in common with the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms? Excerpts from both have been banned from appearing on T-shirts in schools -- for being too political. The protesting teachers who were disciplined in Prince Rupert, B.C. apparently wore T-shirts emblazoned on the back with all the words contained in Section 2 of the Charter which guarantees our fundamental freedoms, including freedom of religion, opinion, expression, peaceful assembly, and association. But, is it reasonable for a school board to limit freedom of expression by determining that political expression is unacceptable in school? If it is, how can we teach history, literature, or even science and math?
