Seirra Olivero, 13, says she was suspended for telling other students about their legal rights. Olivero says she told other students at her Sparrowbush, New York, school that did not have to take a state English test. She says a teacher told her to "shut my mouth." She later got called to the principal's office and interrogated. When the principal refused to let her call her mother, she left the office. School officials deny Olivero was suspended for telling students they didn't have to take the test. They say she was suspended for refusing to obey administrators.
