A 9-year-old Louisiana student was suspended and now has a gun injury on his school record after a teacher said a gun was seen in his bedroom during a virtual class.
While Harrison was taking the test, Ka Mauri’s brother, with whom he shares a room, stepped or stumbled on a BB gun that Ka Mauri had received as a gift. Ka Mauri picked up the gun and was out of sight from the screen for a moment before placing the BB gun on his chair next to him, Cusimano said.
Ka Mauri – who had muted the virtual class he was in so he could focus on his test – continued working before realizing his teacher was trying to get his attention. According to Cusimano, the teacher screamed and Ka Mari was kicked out of the virtual classroom.
After the incident: A behavioral interventionist told Ka Mauri’s family that, according to the teacher, Ka Mauri had been out of sight for a few seconds. Sand came back with a rifle which Cusimano said he was leaning against his chair. The family was told Ka Mauri could no longer go to school.
At a hearing on September 22nd, it was found that Ka Mauri was guilty of exhibiting a facsimile gun during the virtual training. Cusimano said a hearing officer found it was a BB gun.
The school changed the recommendation for expulsion from school for six days and social work assessment. Ka Mauri returned to school on Thursday, September 24th.
The reaction: Cusimano told CNN that the school community “put a guns policy in place on campus and unilaterally decided that it would apply it to one of its students as if they were on campus and not consider any measures like the privacy of their own.” At home.”
Cusimano argues that schools should consider the things that happen in a home when issuing guidelines in a virtual learning environment.
“Now he has a state gun trademark in his education for the rest of his career until he goes to college,” she said.
Cusimano and the Harrison family want the charges removed from Ka Mauri’s file. The community’s lawyer argued that Ka Mauri had no right of appeal as Cusimano said it was just a suspension.
In a statement to CNN, the school community told CNN, “We do not comment on individual student records. With regard to discipline, it is our policy that teachers and administrators take appropriate disciplinary and corrective action to maintain order.”
Louisiana attorney general Jeff Landry announced Friday that his office is investigating the incident, stating that it appears to be an “apparent violation of the school system by the government.”
