The family of a Georgia student suspended for the school year for hugging a teacher has filed an appeal with the school board, the teen’s mother tells CNN.
In his senior year of high school, he is suspended for a year.
He did not deserve a suspension for this. However, he should have simply been told that some people don’t like hugs. If he was in a Latin country, this would be less of an issue. It’s common to kiss on the cheek as a greeting in Mexico for example.
