A first-grader was suspended from school after pretending to be a Power Ranger during recess


CINCINNATI, Ohio – A first-grader was suspended from school after pretending to be a Power Ranger during recess, his parents say.
The boy’s parents, Matthew and Martha Miele, say their son was playing a game of Power Rangers at recess when their son pretended to shoot another student with an imaginary bow and arrow.
The principal suspended the 6-year-old student for three days.
Principal Joe Crachiolo called Martha Miele to let her know about the situation.
“I didn’t really understand. I had him on the phone for a good amount of time so he could really explain to me what he was trying to tell me,” Martha Miele told WLWT. “My question to him was ‘Is this really necessary? Does this really need to be a three-day suspension under the circumstances that he was playing and he’s 6 years old?’”
The Mieles begged the principal to reconsider.
“He told me that he was going to stand firm and that he was not going to change it,” Martha Miele said.
Principal Crachiolo sent a letter home to parents stating in part:
“I have no tolerance for any real, pretend, or imitated violence. The punishment is an out of school suspension.”
