Absurd Behavior By School Officials

School officials in Columbus, GA suspended a student for 10-days for using a cell phone after the lunch hour, which is against school rules. The catch is that the student was talking with his mother, who is serving in Iraq.

I certainly hope the family and the community fights this decision.

Let's not go over board with this. The school official are stressing, that it was the student behaviour AFTER the phone call that got him into trouble.

Agreed. From what I have read the school my have been a little over-zealous in enforcing its cellphone policy (which is probably needed) but it was the kid's own belligerence and stupidity that got him in trouble.
