Given the high emotion-provoking nature of this incident and of the trial, the only error that the teacher made is not alerting the parents in advance.

Teaching the teenagers about our legal system, about the media, and especially about engaging in critical thinking with an open mind are exceedingly commendable actions. Every child should be taught these things.

Of course, there are many parents for whom critical thinking is the last thing they want their children to engage in.
