#FreeThorson – Mayo Students Protest Teacher’s Suspension

Mayo High School students have taken to social media to protest the apparent disciplining of a teacher who dropped an “F bomb” in class.  They’ve organized a “Free Thorson” campaign on Twitter to build support for Jon Thorson, an English and speech teacher at the school.

The tweets have been overwhelmingly positive…

@atrihey8863 Thorson is the only teacher that made my first year at Mayo my best year of highschool.

The man who made me love school. His class never felt like a class. Bring him back, future students need him.

The teacher was apparently placed on leave following the “F-Bomb” incident.   School Officials have not commented about it at this time and it’s not known if they will be able to because school officials in Minnesota are generally not allowed to comment on personnel matters under the state’s Data Privacy Act.
