It's bad enough when schools clamp down on the creativity of their students. When it starts happening on the way to school, then it starts feeling like something out of 1984. Unfortunately, that's exactly what happened recently in southern Quebec, Canada.

Sarah Auger is an 8-year-old girl who loves reading, and often used to spend her 20-minute ride on the school bus with a book in her hands. Her bus driver, however, told her she had to stop. He said her reading posed a risk to the other students on the bus.
