Sending your kids to public school is child cruelty.

Student Suspended For Extra Chicken Nugget.

But there’s a happy ending:

Justice has been served for a Farragut High School student after his suspension for buying an extra chicken nugget in the lunch line was overturned.

Carson Koller received the one-day suspension on Monday for buying the extra nugget.

Koller — a senior, Eagle Scout and the captain of the band’s drum line — was suspended for theft of property after he took six chicken nuggets from the lunch line instead of the usual five, to his mother’s outrage.

“How is it theft if he paid for it?” Koller’s mother, Carrie Koller Waller, wrote in a Facebook post. “It’s food. FOOD!!! Not weapons. Not drugs. Not alcohol. Not cheating on a test. … I am shaking my head over this and not sure what to do. Laugh, punish, argue, dress him up as a nugget bandit, or let it go.”

The suspension was rescinded on Tuesday morning after Waller sent a letter to several school administrators and spoke to Farragut Principal Ryan Siebe on the phone.



But who thought suspending someone over a chicken nugget was a good idea to begin with? The fact they still have a job tells you everything you need to know about the education system.

Sounds like the cashier screwed up and was using the kid to cover her mistake.

The parents should sue.

but they charged him full price for ONE extra nugget? (yes I know they actually charged him for 3 full lunches according to the article) Even though a full lunch would include probably fries & choices of fruit/veggies & milk for the full price of $2.75 for a teenage boy that isn't much food, if you think about it.
I have 2 teenage boys and they could easily eat 2 full lunches like that & still look for more oy
