Boy Suspended From School for Handing in Knife He Found

A middle school student has wound up in a heap of trouble for seemingly doing nothing wrong.

Seventh-grade student Kyler Davies, 12, from Coldwater, Mich., has been suspended from school after he turned in a pocket knife he found in his backpack.

His mother bought the bag at Goodwill, but never checked it, so when Kyler spotted it, he told a school official.

School rules dictate he was suspended for a year, but that was later bumped down to 30 days.

The decision to boot him from school is not sitting well with his Kyler’s mother, Denise. “He was turning it over like he was supposed to, and you are punishing him for doing what’s right,” she said. “So what is that teaching these kids?”

Kyler also can’t play for his local football team during the suspension. It plays on school grounds and he’s not allowed on the property.

The school district did not specifically comment on the matter, but did issue a statement, which read, “Coldwater Community Schools does not disclose information regarding the discipline of individual students under any circumstance. However, discipline procedures are in our student handbook and are consistent with Coldwater Community Schools Board of Education policies which comply with the current laws of the State of Michigan regarding student discipline.”
