When are they going to let these kids express themselves this is stupid !!! Girl suspended for stick-figure doodle MOUNT LEBANON, Pennsylvania (AP) -- A Pennsylvania school suspended an 11-year-old girl for drawing two teachers with arrows through their heads, saying the stick figures were more death threat than doodle. Becca Johnson, an honor-roll sixth-grader at Mellon Middle School, drew the picture on the back of a vocabulary test on which she had gotten a D. "That's my way of saying I'm angry," Becca said, adding she meant no harm to the teachers. The stick figures, on a crudely drawn gallows with arrows in their heads, had the names of Becca's teacher and a substitute teacher written underneath. Another teacher spotted the doodle in the girl's binder Tuesday and reported it, prompting the three-day suspension. Becca's parents, Philip and Barbara Johnson, denied the school's contention the drawings were "terrorist threats." "She had done poorly on a test that was handed back to her. We've always told her that you can't take your feelings out on your teacher, so write about it or draw it, as a catharsis," Barbara Johnson said. She accused the school of applying a zero-tolerance policy that "does away with due process and inflicts a penalty without a hearing or investigation." The district said its zero-tolerance policy applies only to gun or drug possession, and denied that no investigation was done. "All I can say is that when we have taken action related to the activities of students in the schools, we have done so after a thorough investigation," Mount Lebanon School District Superintendent Glenn Smartschan said.
