No school for three days - level 2
A boy was suspended from school for three days because he made his hand look like a gun. He also put it to the side of a student’s head and pretended to shoot.
The students were warned about this, but the boy’s father doesn’t understand this. He knows that when some students get in a fight, they don’t get suspended this long. The school is very strict about this.
The strong stance is set to continue. If the boy does this again, he will be punished again.
Gun control is widely debated in the USA, and this incident is receiving a lot of publicity, as well.
Difficult words: suspend (to officially stop), pretend (to act like something is true), stance (publicly known opinion) debate (argue).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
