Kicked out for a keychain

A ninth-grade girl was kicked out of school in Mississippi for inadvertently bringing a “weapon” — a Mace sprayer on her mother’s keychain — to school.

An Ed Navigator advisor helped the mother appeal, then persuaded the superintendent to reduce the student’s time in an alternative school. However, the girl, a top student, now has a record for “bringing a weapon to school.” She fears it will affect her chances of admission to college.
