The school's handbook reads: “Possession/carrying/use of/threat of use of a firearm or replica shall result in a recommendation for expulsion for a period of time up to one full calendar year.” The policy could have resulted in even greater penalties for Lyssikatos, including a 10-day suspension and even expulsion, the boy's father, Keith Bonanno, told WPRO radio. Bonanno called the combined suspension and loss of a field trip "disgraceful." What do you think? Does the punishment fit the crime or is it an over-reach? Should schools rely on zero-tolerance policies or use discretion on a case-by-case basis? Let us know in the comments section below.
