Feedback at 5:00: Is This High School Right To Stand By It's Zero Tolerance Policy?

Posted: Updated:

A Massachusetts teen is being punished after breaking a strict, no-tolerance policy at her high school.

It's because the girl picked up a friend who had been drinking and drove her home from a party over the weekend.

Erin Cox, a senior, was also demoted from captain of her volleyball team and suspended for five games.

Since Erin was at the party, even if she was not drinking, the school says she broke their zero tolerance policy against drugs and alcohol.

Her family's lawyer is hoping to get the decision reversed.

The school is not commenting.

Do you think the high school is right to stand by it's policy?  Why or why not?

It's tonight's Feedback at Five.
