Sidebar action: Poll and videos

Hey, peoples. I thought that our poll for the next week could focus on an incident that occured at one of our secondary schools yesterday. The backstory is that Principal of the Garrison Secondary School, Matthew Farley, suspended about 200 students because their clothing was deemed inappropriate. Those suspended were third to fifth form girls who had not complied with the school's deportment rules. You can read the full story here.

Our poll question is: Do you agree with the mass suspension of students at the Garrison Secondary?

In terms of the videos, over the next few weeks we're going to be alternating between music videos from the soulful Alicia Keys and queen of hip-hop soul, Mary J. Blige. Keys will be releasing her next album, As I Am, on November 13, while Blige's new album Growing Pains will hit shelves on November 20. Enjoy!
