AKRON, Ohio -- Officials in Ohio said they'll investigate reports that students at a charter school were served gin at their sixth-grade graduation...
A school official said the ritual -- meant to teach honesty -- is similar to an African rite of passage. He reports the kids spit out the gin.
The school, which supposedly emphasizes African history and culture, has said it will do away with the gin next year.
Serving gin to 12-year-olds? No wonder it takes a village to raise a child in Africa!
