    64 students suspended for cycling to school

    http://mobile.mlive.com/advgrapids/d...l=true#display

    WALKER, MI Sabrena Hall and more than 60 other Kenowa Hills High School seniors are upset that a bike ride to school this morning got them suspended on the last day of school, and banned from the traditional senior walk.

    Students say more than 100 classmates participated in a 3-mile bike ride to school that included escorts by a Walker Police cruiser and the mayor. It was supposed to be a fun twist on the types of things that typically happen on senior prank day.

    But Principal Katie Pennington was not consulted and not happy about the organized event, suspending 64 of the students for the day. There are about 300 students in Kenowa's senior class.

    Wow.

    No doubt this is the reason for the suspension...

    There were reports that teachers and others were late in their commute because of the mass bike ride, and that traffic at one point was backed up more than a mile.
    Those unruly students were no more than traffic...

    Good heavens!!!!!!! Riding a bike to school!!!! That kind of action must be nipped in the bud before it becomes normal!!!! The brilliant principal must have an IQ of a goat turd, and should be fired. More and more school "leaders" seem to think they have been elected dictator!!!!!

    It was the police cruiser escort that blocked traffic.

    According to MSNBC http://usnews.msnbc.msn.com/_news/20...ikes-to-school, it was a school prank that even involved the mayor.
