A year ago, Frank Harvey, a senior at Manville High School in Manville, NJ, says he was instructed by one of his teachers to make a video about gun control for a junior college readiness class.
NJ.com reports that:
“The teenager ran into trouble when he mistakenly left the thumb drive with the project on it in a computer in the school library. Someone found it and turned it over to the school administration, who then contacted police.
Manville police cleared Harvey but district officials suspended him and said he’d have to undergo a five-hour evaluation before being allowed back in school because the teacher said she didn’t recall giving him the assignment.”
When asked about the video, the teacher denied assigning such a project. But Harvey’s mother, Mary, maintains that the teacher is lying, telling News 12 NJ, “I’m not taking him for a psychological evaluation because this teacher is lying and won’t own up to what she did.”
Mary has since opted to remove her son from the school, and Frank will instead be pursuing a GED.
