Student’s suspension seems much too harsh

Is there more to the suspension of the senior class president at Wichita Heights High School than what school officials have said? They suspended Wesley Teague (in photo) for the rest of the school year and barred him from most graduation activities for what assistant principal Monique Arndt said were “very inappropriate tweets about the Heights athletic teams, aggressively disrespecting many athletes.” But the tweets seemed quite benign. The problem seemed to be the overreaction of some other students. School officials have a difficult job maintaining a safe and healthy school environment, but this punishment seems much too harsh.
