Honestly, I dont think she should have been punished THAT badly for writing "I love Alex" on a wall, but seriously, thats too much of a punishment.

That is pretty bad. I mean, it was magic marker. Just make the kid wash it off and give her detention. That punishment was way harsh.

I remember writing my crushes name in a big heart like that.

I'm glad I don't have to go to public school, if they deal out punishments in that way, I would have died years ago...

That is full of fail. I've never seen such a ridiculous sentence as this. I mean that's either a really strict school or the principal is a dumbass.

... That is retarded. You don't seen a kid to a school for criminals because she drew a heart on the wall! I'd say switch school districts after this. Imagine what the high school must be like.

Well, I wouldn't say it's okay, since she did know it's vandalism. And forget public school, private schools might be more touchy about vandals. The private school I went to might not expel someone fitting this profile, but they'd get a pretty hefty punishment.
Also, related article: "Missing 12-Year-Old Girl Found Dead." :O

I'd say it's still vandalism. People should have punishments the same laws. People not just vandalize public schools, but other parts of the public areas.

She deserves to be punished for doing that kind of bullshit.

And here's someone who apparently did not fully read the article or this thread. No one's arguing that she shouldn't be punished, most of us are arguing that the punishment was far too extreme.

"But in a statement, the Katy school district defended its actions, saying, "It is always our practice to follow the law and policy while looking out for what is in the best interest of the individual student and the district as a whole." "

Hah... Ah hahahahah... Yeah, four months disciplinary program for such a small piece of graffiti is in the best interest of the individual in question? It might interest the other students as they think "SHIT SHIT DON'T GET CAUGHT DON'T GRAFFITI!!!" constantly... But that punishment is WAY too harsh...

To add to the sentiment that pretty much everyone else has expressed, that is indeed ridiculous. The fitting punishment would be to scrub it off (or paint over it), and possibly serve detention, not what she was dealt.

Sign of the times, I suppose. Times that aren't so rosy.

I agree that the punishment is far to extreme. Just make her clean all the graffiti off the walls or re-paint them maybe. Sending her to disciplinary school is way to much for that. I know a kid that got caught spray painting and he didn't get sent to a disciplinary school.

Yeah that is WAY too extreme of a punishment for something as small as that. People should be focusing on and punishing the ones who were making terrorist threats that they mentioned.

Jeeze I see a bunch of graffiti way worse than that all the time where I live.

A little extreme, yes. But I'll bet that she'll never do that again! Also, they probably did it so others will see the penalty and won't do it themselves.

But to THAT extremity?
