Today on the Sidney Wood Show we had Sam and April McNair in the studio. If you are not familiar with Sam’s story, he is a Duluth High School student that was suspended for a year because he hugged a teacher. Although, Sam stated that he had hugged the teacher at least 4 to 5 other times prior to the incident, the school based their decision of suspension from the school surveillance cameras and Sam’s prior history.
This story has raised many questions about the appropriateness between teacher and student. Do you feel the ‘punishment fit the crime’? What would you have done if your son/daughter was in that situation? And when does a hug go to far? Click below to listen to today’s show.
