No. Is a year long suspension appropriate for such an act? No. The weird part about this is, many schools provide condoms to students, start sexual education in grade schools, teachers demonstrate and have students practice putting condoms on banana's in class, (I don't know if that's the case with this particular school so yes, I'm generalizing a bigger point not attributed to this particular case, so phbbt! ) and then suspend a kid like this under sexual harassment for a "hug". Interesting to say the least...
    Okay, maybe suspension is rather harsh for a hug, but still, he was warned about inappropriate and unwanted touching in the past according to the article, and the teacher had to physically push him away from her?

    Right, you can't force hugs or other touching on other people, regardless of whether a person might consider that "bitchy" or not.

    An uninvited hug from behind, yeah I think that could qualify as sexual harassment; especially if the student touched her breasts or his lips touched her.

    All touching and speaking is inappropriate if she's a bitch.

    Maybe she turns into a bitch because she's tired of people assuming that, because she has a vagina, she is open to all forms of sexual harassment?

    I never said that. I was alluding to the fact that I can deal with the situation on my own.
