honour student suspended for Pocket knife out $20,000
Organized by: john oravec
An honor student 16 years old was suspended due to zero tolerance policy. He lost $1,400 in cancellation fees for a Europe grad trip he is no longer allowed on... also $18,000 in legal bills he has spent unsuccessfully fighting the ruling. He never got detention was ideal student who used his small pocket knife daily to work on family farm. Forgot in his backpack one day and noticed it on the bus. Showed to a friend and someone must have told the principle. He was suspended fir rest of year forced to take classes in isolation with tutors and must he completely cut off from rest of peers. I would like to see people support him and show we are on his side and that the Zero Terance policy us not working. And that this boy Shawn Soucy is being treated unfairly... let's see if we can raise his $20,000 he spent so far and also a little more to continue his fight!!!
