Ohio Middle School Student Suspended For Liking Instagram Picture

A student from Edgewood Middle School in Ohio has been suspended 10 days for liking a picture of a gun on Instagram. Zachary Bowlin says after he liked the picture which was of an airsoft gun the following morning the school called him to the principal’s office and searched him for weapons.

After hiring a lawyer it looks like the school will be dropping the punishment.

KSLA received the statement from the Superintendent gave to Fox19 Now…

“Concerning the recent social media posting of a gun with the caption “Ready”, and the liking of this post by another student, the policy at Edgewood City Schools reads as follows:

The Board has a “zero tolerance” of violent, disruptive, harassing, intimidating, bullying, or any other inappropriate behavior by its students. 

Furthermore, the policy states:  

Students are also subject to discipline as outlined in the Student Code of Conduct that occurs off school property when the misbehavior adversely affects the educational process.

As the Superintendent of the Edgewood City Schools, I assure you that any social media threat will be taken serious including those who “like” the post when it potentially endangers the health and safety of students or adversely affects the educational process.”
