Resolution, years later, in boy's suspension over 'pastry gun'

 


A long-running student discipline case involving a Maryland boy who was suspended after chewing a pastry into the shape of a gun and aiming it at his classmates has ended with a settlement between school officials and the child’s family.

Neither side would discuss the terms of the agreement, but the recent resolution brought closure to a 3 1 /2-year struggle that inspired legislative efforts concerning student discipline in several states and came to be known as the “Pop-Tart” case.

On March 1, 2013, a 7-year-old allegedly misbehaved during the morning breakfast period in his class at Park Elementary School in Anne Arundel County.
