A while back I wrote about a noose incident at Somerset Academy in Pembroke Pines. I saw today, via Electronic Village, that six students were suspended over the matter.

The school’s assistant principal, Donyale McGhee said the students involved in the noose hanging were cited for “disorderly behavior, misrepresentation of information, defiance and withholding information from administration.”
That's a far cry from the earlier report, which had the headmaster saying "There's nothing I can do. The students involved are the best, brightest honor students at our school."

I'm in no position to judge as to whether the punishment is enough, but I'm glad there was a punishment, and that the school didn't just try to hush the matter up.
