Default students suspended for biking to school

It was part of a senior prank, but pretty ridiculous over reaction by drivers and the principal.

Jonathan tweeted about it this morning. Do you all follow his tweets? Good, up-to-the-moment info.

Wow! What nerve! How will we -ever- get a cycling culture in the USA with mindsets like this principal. Not only was her reaction over the top, it was outside her jurisdiction. She should be fired for even thinking she had the authority to suspend students over such an incident.

The students need an apology from the principal.
