No swearing by the school board

ABBEVILLE, La. (AP) - November 25, 2009

That's the new rule for members of Louisiana's Vermilion Parish School Board.

The board has a new regulation against cussing and putdowns for its own board members. If it's wrong for kids and school employees to curse, some board members say it should be wrong for them, too.

But member Anthony Fontana opposes the move, saying there's no way to penalize elected officials for cursing.
