Student Ticket For Misbehavior

I actually support the concept of fining students or their parents for excessive misbehavior, but this is taking the idea a bit far:

She said her son has a behavioral disorder and was on medication and couldn’t stay awake in class at Travis Elementary School.

"So he fell asleep again, and when they tried to wake him, he got angry,” Walka said.

She said her son then left the classroom after a teacher tried to restrain him. She said her son also made noise in the hall and he laid down on the floor and wouldn’t get up. For disrupting class, officers at El Paso Independent School District gave her 10-year-old son a ticket for $260 and it is a Class C Misdemeanor.

I can't see fining the kid in this place, but I wouldn't let him back in school until he can get a proper dose of medication that will allow him to function appropriately.
