9th grader suspended for giving noose to student

Posted:

BALDWIN (WKOW) -- A ninth grade boy from Baldwin, Wis. was suspended for giving a small noose and a "KKK symbol" to a black classmate.

Baldwin-Woodville High School Principal Eric Russell says he suspended the boy Dec. 14 after he confessed to placing the offensive items on the classmate's desk.

Russell said the items were made in art class and the boy did it as a joke.

The girl's foster mother says she is 15 years old and one of only three black students in the 450-student school.
