No. 1 worst thing for schools to do to kids: Make stupid and arbitrary rules that have nothing to do with their future success in life. What a great way to teach kids to not trust adults! Kids In Danger (K.I.D.--www.kidsindanger.net) believes that this young man has been emotionally abused by a thoughtless adult bureaucracy, and it's time for a lawsuit against this school district, and time for this school principal and her assistants to be investigated by the school board.
This is NOT a matter of discipline. It's a matter of abuse of the power that adults wield over children. Time for spankings for these "grown-ups."

Unfortunately, there is an uncontested member on the Board (no one ran against him), who has appointed himself as Chair- and happens to be a former Superintendent. These 'professionals' are trained in "Conflict Management', which essentially uses various strategies to manipulate and control. This particular fellow has been going about telling people that the Board is supportive of Ms.L- in truth, the other Board members had not stated twhether they were or not, in actuality. He may have already pressured them into submission by now.
Standish needs to get them all out- a school is an educational facility- they need to concentrate on educating- NOT humiliating.
If they let this slide, other Districts will assume that they, too, can use the deplorable tactics.
