Suspended Over Antiwar View, Girl Leaves School

November 28, 2001|From Times Wire Reports

A high school student in Charleston who was suspended last month for her antiwar, pro-anarchy stances has been pulled out of school by her mother because of safety concerns.

Amy Sierra said her daughter, Katie, 15, has been attacked, threatened and insulted by students at Sissonville High School. The mother said it was her choice to withdraw Katie and enroll her in a program that allows her to work from home. "She was getting assaulted over and over again, and I got fed up," Amy Sierra said.

Katie, a ninth-grader, was suspended for three days in October for defying school orders not to form an anarchy club or wear T-shirts that include slogans opposing the bombing of Afghanistan.
