Schools worldwide are starting to reopen, enforcing various new measures and procedures to keep pupils safe and reduce the chance of germs spreading. As the U.S. debates when to bring children back into classrooms , phased-in reopenings have begun in numerous countries around the world.

The report said Ka Mauri left his seat, out of view of the teacher, and returned with “what appeared to be a full-sized rifle in his possession.”

The teacher tried waving at him to get his attention, but his computer was muted because he was taking a test. He was then kicked out of the class video conference. He faced expulsion, but was ultimately forced to spend nearly two weeks in at-home suspension.

Harrison’s family is fighting the suspension on his record, arguing that he was unjustly punished for an act that did not take place within school grounds.

Chelsea Cusimano, a lawyer hired by the family, told USA TODAY that the school violated multiple due process violations in suspending him. She said that the school did not have distance learning-specific rules in place, instead basing their suspension on on-campus policies that should not apply to distance-learning students.

"Everything about this was so robotic in nature and unilaterally applied to Ka Mauri, almost as if to make him an example," she said in an interview with USA TODAY.

Landry said the child's punishment is out of line.

“It is ludicrous for this All-American kid to be punished for taking responsible actions just as it is for his parents to be accused of neglect,” the attorney general said.

Harrison’s case has also gained support from prominent community members.

A member of the school board, Simeon Dickerson, argued against the school’s decision, saying that the school should have withheld punishment as soon as they realized it was a BB gun.

Walter Kimbrough, president of Dillard University, a historically Black college in New Orleans, also took the school to task in a letter calling on Jefferson Parish schools superintendent James Gray to revoke Harrison’s suspension, arguing that his punishment did not fit the offense and may harm his future.

“Having a suspension on his record, as well as having to engage with a social worker, begins to track him in a way that we both know disproportionately harms Black male children,” Kimbrough wrote in the letter.
