In the wake of this week's controversy involving free speech, social media, and allegations of filth at one Miami-Dade high school, students at another are reportedly sending out their own pictures of unhygienic conditions. The new photos were taken by students at Miami Palmetto Senior High School, according to Lisa Merkin, who runs the community page Around Pinecrest and received the photos.

Update: After this post was published, several Palmetto students have come forward defending their school. See below for more details.More »
