Fart Heard Around the Nation – Florida Teen Banned from Polk County School Bus


In studying history, we all learn about the “shot heard around the world” which actually is a line from Ralph Waldo Emerson’s Concord Hymm written in 1837. The term has been used to describe the start of the American Revolutionary War as well as the beginning of World War I. Recently, there wasn’t another shot heard around the world but there was a “fart” heard or written about across the nation. The “fart” at issue involved a 15 year old student in Polk County, Florida who was banned from riding the school bus for a few days due to farting. You can read about the fart heard around the nation and the banning of the student from the bus in my legal brief’s newsletter at Florida Teen Banned from School Bus for Farting and Causing Disruption.
