Parents of suspended 5-year-old vow fight
MOUNT CARMEL, Pa. (AP) – A central Pennsylvania family has hired an attorney to fight their 5-year-old daughter’s 10-day suspension from kindergarten for telling another girl she was going to shoot her with a bubble gun. Attorney Robin Ficker says Mount CarmelAreaSchool District officials labeled the girl a “terrorist threat” for the remark made as both girls stood waiting for a school bus on Jan. 10.
The girl was referring to a device that shoots out soap bubbles – which she didn’t even have with her at the time. Ficker says the girl has never shot a real gun and “is the least terroristic person in Pennsylvania.” School district solicitor Edward Greco tells pennlive.com that officials are looking into the incident, but says he and school officials aren’t at liberty to discuss disciplinary actions.
