Spanish At School Translates to Suspension

School suspends boy for talking spanish to his friend in the bathroom. Not to worry, the school district rescinded his punishment and said it was not grounds for supension.
"So I went to the principal and said, 'My son, he's not suspended for fighting, right? He's not suspended for disrespecting anyone. He's suspended for speaking Spanish in the hall?' So I asked her to show me the written policy about that. But they didn't have" one.
When I was in high school, kids would get in trouble for smoking in the bathroom, that was grounds for suspension. But speaking another language, that would have gotten you into the honors program.
