She carries a 3.6 grade-point average, or at least she did until Oct. 13.That was the day Chanelle was suspended from C. Milton Wright High School in Harford County.

THE REV. Jesse Jackson's critics are right, but for the wrong reasons. Jackson was wrong to butt into the school expulsion affair in Decatur, Ill. The matter has been in the news the past month. On Sept. 17, a fight broke out during a football game at Decatur's Eisenhower High School. Seven students -- all black males -- were expelled for two years under the Decatur school system's "zero-tolerance" policy against school violence. Enter Jackson early last month, leading a protest and claiming the punishments were too harsh.
