High school boys at Westwood High School in Mesa, Arizona are in the center of a major controversy after choosing to hold hands in front of their peers instead of being suspended, as a punishment for fighting at school.
The school principal is under fire by some for the unusual and controversial form of punishment centering around public humiliation.
In a statement released by Mesa Public Schools, it is clear that the decision will be scrutinized. Part of that statement reads:
“The district does not condone the choice of in-school discipline given these students, regardless of their acceptance or willingness to participate. District leadership will address this matter with the school principal, and review district protocol regarding student discipline with all administrators.”
