What's up with kids today?

"Hot-or-Not" list online: ten day suspension

Five St. Louis-area high school students who posted a "hot-or-not"-style list on Facebook were punished by school officials with a ten-day suspension as a result of their insensitivity toward the girls in the junior class. Since Tinker v. Des Moines, schools have had only a limited authority to rein in students' off-campus speech - only speech that "materially disrupts" school operations may be regulated. Are hurt feelings enough to meet this standard?

What kind of ludicrous over-reaching god complex do these school administrators have that they think this sort of behavior is within their jurisdiction?
