A five-year-old girl was suspended by a kindergarten school in North Carolina for playing with a stick that resembled a gun, according to a report by 100% Fed Up.
In her interview with ABC affiliate WTVD Tuesday, Brandy Miller said she was outraged after learning through the school principal that her daughter Caitlin was suspended for one day on Friday.
Caitlin and her two friends were playing “King and Queen” at Hoke County School in North Carolina, where she played a guard and picked up the “stick gun” then made a shooting motion as if protecting the royals from the intruders.
The principal claims the child posed a threat to other students when she imitated a shooting, a violation of school policy.
In a statement, the Hoke County School defended its policy, saying it would “not tolerate assaults, threats or harassment from any student.”
