Louisiana principal forced to backtrack as student punishment blows up

A Louisiana public school principal is forced to apologize after he attempted to ruin one students life with horrifying punishment to push his own religious views against the teen dancing.

“A Louisiana public school principal has apologized and requested leave for punishing a student and questioning her religious beliefs after he saw a video of her dancing at an off-campus party. But the mother of the student has called the principal’s move to reinstate her daughter’s school privileges “too little, too late.”

Kaylee Timonet, the 17-year-old student government president and scholarship candidate, was videotaped dancing at an off-campus party following Walker High School’s Sept. 30 Homecoming festivities. A hired DJ took the video and posted it on social media to promote his business, CBS affiliate WAFB reported. Three days later, Jason St. Pierre, principal of the public high school near the state capital of Baton Rouge, told the student she would be removed from her position with the student government association and that he would no longer recommend her for college scholarships.

At a meeting in his office with the assistant principal, St. Pierre told the student she wasn’t “living in the Lord’s way,” her mother said, according to The Advocate. He printed out Bible verses with highlighted sections and “questioned who her friends were and if they followed the Lord,” the news outlet reported.”
