This young student tried a science experiment that, a shock to all including Kiera, "blew up". This took place recently in Polk County, Florida at Bartow High School. Noone harmed, ingredients: aluminum foil and toilet cleaner in a plastic bottle. It didn't take place in a science classroom. Kiera's a good student and Bartow is a good high school. Their zero tolerance policy, however, is beyond impressive. Their reaction was to immediately suspend Kiera from school and intended to press charges! Thanks to many petitions, the State's Attorney's office said that they saw no intentional ill will and they would not press charges. (Go, Jeff Ashton!) Polk County Board of Education, though, is not allowing her to return to Bartow High School; she had indeed been "expelled"! and is at an "alternative high school". I think this is ludicrous. Especially when I glanced at the Board's website and the pride they take in their school and those awarded for various honours. Below is a petition to support Keira's return to HER school. Thanks, Jude
