I'd reccomend calling in the big guns of the ACLU, and
having them scream 1st Ammendmant on her behalf.  (so
far as I know, the ACLU has won every lawsuit they've
had with a school this year)

The problem is that the ACLU isn't really well known
for thier rapid response, and a lawsuit could well
drag out for years and years, and with her Nov. 30
deadline, I don't think that it's all that plausable.

I say take it to straight media.  Seattle's a faily
liberal town, really well centered in the
activist-left.  Letters to the editors of the Seattle
Times ( ), The PI
( ), Stranger
( ), Weekly
( ), ect.  Encourage
people to call her principal personally (or someone
higher up in the school district) and express their
outrage about this violation of her 1st ammendmant

I know I'd make that call.  And enough angry parents
will make anyone change their minds.
