65 Michigan Students Suspended For Riding Bikes To School [Video]
The principal at a Walker, MI high school suspended about 65 students for riding their bikes to school.
It was their last day of school, senior year, and they rode from a fitness center to the school. They were escorted by police, and the mayor even had donuts with them. Parents lined up on the 3-mile route cheering them on and taking pictures.
But when they got to school, the administrators were gathered in the auditorium and were pretty upset about the ride. They didn’t know anything about it and said it was a safety problem.
The principle scolded them and then sent all the kids that rode bikes home. More than 200 parents and students showed up at the next school board meeting to complain.
The kids were allowed to graduate and no one was punished other than the one day suspension.
