City Faces Legal Action Over T-Shirts

The New York Post ran an article this week which discussed the issue of discrimination as it relates to Debbie Almontaser, founder and principal of the Khalil Gibran International Academy in Brooklyn. Almontaser was removed from her position after t-shirts were printed with the slogan “intifada NYC.”  The article is a good representation of how freedom of speech can be limited by a person’s position. Furthermore, it leads to a conversation about personal associations and how they can lead to negative consequences.
