The parents of a 12-year-old Ohio student are disappointed in the court ruling that will uphold their son’s suspension for staring at a classmate last year.
The student was suspended from St. Gabriel Consolidated, a private Catholic school, last September after he was said to be intimidating a female student by staring at her, reports Fox19.
Court documents show that the female student said she “felt fearful”, which is what lead to the suspension.
“I never knew she was scared cause she was laughing,” he wrote in a letter of apology to his classmate.
The 12-year-old said he was simply engaged in a staring contest and that his classmate was participating in the game.
“I understand I done the wrong thing that will never happen again. I will start to think before I do so I am not in this situation.”
Still, the suspension was enacted. The principal handles all final rulings when it comes to disciplinary action, as outlined by the school’s policy.
