The New PC Sugar Nazis: Student Suspended for Contraband Skittles
NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - An eighth-grade honors student who was suspended for a day, barred from attending an honors dinner and stripped of his title as class vice president after he was caught with contraband candy in school will get his student council post back, school officials said.
Superintendent Reginald Mayo said in a statement late Wednesday that he and principal Eleanor Turner met with student Michael Sheridan’s parents and that Turner decided to clear the boy’s record and restore him to his post.
Michael was disciplined after he was caught buying a bag of Skittles from a classmate. The classmate’s suspension also will be expunged, school officials said.
