Little Girl Suspended for … Saying ‘No’ to Drugs!
We hear about school administrators making insane decisions quite a bit, and this time it’s no different. A seventh grade student in Indiana has been suspended for a week. The offense? Saying no to drugs.
Another kid approached Rachel in a locker room with some Adderall pills and put one in her hand. Rachel did what she was always taught to do — she refused it and gave it back. The Adderall pusher got caught and Rachel was asked to cooperate in the investigation, which she did. She wrote a witness statement, in which she described being offered the drug, having it placed in her hand and giving it back.
School administrators say they’re sorry, but touching a drug constitutes possession and the five-day suspension is mandatory. Rules are rules.
