Student Suspended For Calling Mom in Iraq



Student Suspended Over Call to Mom in Iraq



COLUMBUS, Ga. - A high school student was suspended for 10 days for refusing to end a mobile phone call with his mother, a soldier serving in Iraq, school officials said.

The 10-day suspension was issued because Kevin Francois was "defiant and disorderly" and was imposed in lieu of an arrest, Spencer High School assistant principal Alfred Parham said.

The confrontation Wednesday began after the 17-year-old junior got a call at lunchtime from his mother, Sgt. 1st Class Monique Bates, who left in January for a one-year tour with the 203rd Forward Support Battalion.

Mobile phones are allowed on campus but may not be used during school hours. When a teacher told him to hang up, he refused. He said he told the teacher, "This is my mom in Iraq. I'm not about to hang up on my mom."

Parham said the teen's suspension was based on his reaction to the teacher's request. He said the teen used profanity when taken to the office.

"Kevin got defiant and disorderly," Parham said. "When a kid becomes out of control like that they can either be arrested or suspended for 10 days. Now being that his mother is in Iraq, we're not trying to cause her any undue hardship; he was suspended for 10 days."

he got disorderly. he used profanity against those with superiority. if his mom was smart shed realize he was in school and tell him to call back later.

rules are rules. i dont care if he was on the phone with GW himself, if he is told to hang up, he hangs up.

if he was smart hed just ask to go to the bathroom and talk as long as he wants there.

i understand where you are coming from, he could have probably handled it differently but you have to realize that his mother..........mother , is in another country and could possibly not return.

and depending where you are, that might have been the only time she had to talk.

Call back later? Yea....[sarcasm]cause you really have the opportunity to use the phones whenever you want over there[/sarcasm]

ehh....Don't even bring him into this...Those are two very different people; one is his mother who is risking her life overseas and the other is just the man who sits in the white house.

If my mom/dad was overseas and they called me in the middle of class, I wouldn't be thinking about where I am at the time or who I'm inconveniencing.

I think the teacher should have excused him from the class into the hallway, telling him that he can talk to her, but he has to make it quick. If that situation happened in my school, I could bet you money that's how it would be handled. Someone in that school is on a power trip or they just wanted to cause commotion.

im jsut saying he handled it bad, and that if my mom was in iraq she would know not to call when im in school. her being in the military does not give her/him the authority to go above the school system.

like i said, he shouldve went to the bathroom and talked in there, not the middle of the lunch crowd.

I don't think the kid cared. Give him a break. His mom is thousands of miles away getting shot at and at any moment she could be killed by some suicide bomber.

I would have done the exact samething.

I would have walked outside of the school while staying on the phone with my mom, you cant just call back whenever you want to someone on the phone in iraq you total bullivian goofball, you do know there is a total 6-8 hrs time diff right!

I dont blame the kid either, totally agree with his actions, but I dont think I would have gotten smart with the teacher, but explained to her the situation and then carried on!

i would have kept on talking too. i mean she is prolly in **** load of danger over there and that might be the last call he ever had from her. i salute that kid but he could have handled it better by kicking some ***.

Wow, you've got some whacky views. Her being a MOM gives her the authority to go over the school system. Also, fighting for her country gives her the right to talk to her kid when she gets time to. Have you ever been to the desert??? Have you ever had to cover your *** so it doesn't get blown up? Have you ever had to wear a gas mask just because some ******* had chem/bio weapons??? Well let me tell you, I have. I've been to the desert 7 times and when you get a few frickin free minutes to call home, you take them. There are about 100,000 soliders over there right now and about 100 phones for them. So how offen do you think they get a chance to call home??? Us soliders are not physically alone while stationed over there, but mentally we are. It's about 8000 miles to Iraq from any givin point in the U.S. and all off our love ones and belongings are back at our homes. So how you dare say rules are rules!!!

This is F'n crazy! If we had all the facts I bet we find out that this is a kid that the staff has issues with. Cause if it was one of the student council or a head jock then this would not have been an issue at all. There are some serious parts of the story missing.

Just glad this is not my kid, cause I'd end up at the school kick'n some teacher butt.

high school was a waste of time, but I enjoyed my 6 years of high school.....j/k



but seriously they should not have taken it that far, if it was the principal and his son/daughter called him on his cell phone from iraq I dont think he would have told them to call back later. And I am sure if a student told him he wasnt supposed to be on his cell he would have brushed them off.
