School choice

In San Bernardino, a high school student was suspended for wearing makeup to express his Wiccan beliefs. In justifying the suspension, a school official provided an insight into what some people mean by "choice":

"We bend over backwards to provide our students better educational choices. I think this student needed to make a better choice."

Got that? You have choice. It's just that if you make a choice we disapprove of, we will punish you until you make a different choice.
