Boy threatened with expulsion for violent drawings

Scottsdale, AZ

An 8-year old student drew a picture of a ninja and a soldier.  The headmaster of the school found the pictures to be “violent and unacceptable”, and has threatened to expel the boy from school as he could not guarantee the safety of the other students.

The school handbook does state that, “Drawings that depict weapons” are grounds for expulsion.

The parents have withdrawn their child from the school.
