Maryland district denies appeal of suspension over pastry

School district officials have refused to expunge the record of a second-grade student in Maryland who was suspended from school for nibbling a pastry into the shape of a gun. The Baltimore Sun says student Josh Welch and his family will appeal to the Anne Arundel County School Board after their appeal of Josh's suspension was denied by the district superintendent. Josh was suspended in March for two days from Park Elementary School after being accused of shaping the pastry into the form of a gun and waving it around.
