What happened?

Phillip states... "I was only singing the Star Spangled Banner, not loud, quietly enough so nobody could hear me. Anyways I do it everyday and Miss Narwin always making such a big deal. She's the only one in the classroom who can hear me and gets annoyed."

Sides of the Story

Phillip - "I was only singing the Star Spangled Banner, not loud, quietly enough so nobody could hear me. Anyways I do it everyday and Miss Narwin always making such a big deal. She's the only one in the classroom who can hear me and gets annoyed."


Dr Seymour - "The school does not have such a rule about not singing the Star Spangled Banner and Phillip shouldn't be punished for such hogwash."


Dr Doane - "I don't think he should've been suspended for just singing the Star Spangled Banner. How could something be so stupid?"


Dr Palleni - "I don't think this needs to be so serious. He was suspended from the school for two days for causing a disturbance in Peg Narwin's class."


Miss. Narwin - "Phillip was creating a disturbance, a serious one, and we have a rule he didn't acknowledge it or me so therefore he was punished and has a consequence."

My Opinion

I think this is very stupid that Phillip got suspended for two days just for singing. I don't think any school should have it as a rule, he was just being patriotic. The only time I would get annoyed is if I could hear him and he was being loud. From Phillip's point of view he was being quiet. I think Miss Narwin was paying too much attention to it when the other kids weren't so she was the only one hearing it.
