Two students who were caught fighting in an East Valley highschool were asked to choose their punishment. They could be suspended for 9 days each or sit together holding hands throughout the entire day in front of their peers. The two boys chose to hold hands.
This method of punishment is drawing criticism from news watchers across America as the snapshot of the two has become an internet sensation. The teens, who were ridiculed for the entire day, have not made any claims of harassment or bullying yet many believe this punishment is a direct attack on gays.
What do you think? Was their punishment the best way to handle the situation?
