The Wood mere Elementary School in Jefferson county, in the American state of Louisiana, suspended a grade 4 pupil, Ka Mauri, for keeping a BB gun in the bedroom. It was reported that during a virtual class session, the video captured the boy’s plastic gun and the teacher reported to the school authorities, who recommended expulsion after contacting the boy’s grandfather. However, at a hearing, it was determined that it facsimile fun and the expulsion was amended to a one week suspension.
Reacting to the school’s decision, the attorney , representing the child’s family, Mr Landry, described the school as going too far in applying its on-campus weapons policy without considering the privacy of the family and the home. His speech as reported by CNN’s Gisela Crespo:
“I am alarmed by what appears to not only be multiple violations of both the State and Federal Constitutions, but also blatant government overreach by the school system,” Landry said in a statement.
“For anyone to conclude that a student’s home is now school property because of connectivity through video conferencing is absurd … It is ludicrous for this All-American kid to be punished for taking responsible actions just as it is for his parents to be accused of neglect,”
While the decision of the school may appear harsh, it goes a long way to show the impact of the societal propagated in school on the family and the home.
