Appeal for Pop Tart gun boy denied

Pop Tart Gun Appeal for Pop Tart gun boy deniedAn appeal to have the record cleared for a boy who was suspended from school for turning his breakfast pastry into gun was denied, according to his parents.

Back in March, Park Elementary School second-grader Josh Welch made national headlines after school officials said he chewed his Pop Tart into the shape of a gun.

School officials have denied the family’s appeal.

At the time the incident took place, the boy’s father, B.J. Welch, was livid with the punishment dished out to his son.

“When you compare the caliber of the ‘offense’ to the caliber of the punishment, they don’t match up,” he said at the time. “I just feel that’s a lack of common sense in conjunction with the use of the rules and, honestly, I believe there’s some personal bias involved in the decision, as well.”

The parents say they now plan to appeal the record to the Anne Arundel County School Board.
