Pamela Ibanez started this petition to Virginia Beach School Board

My son, Phoenix Ibanez, is a military kid who has been sent to the local alternative school, where seriously delinquent kids attend, for the rest of his junior year. He is an honor roll student with no prior serious disciplinary issues & who had only missed one sick day of school prior to this incident (by the time he is allowed to start back at this alternative school, he will have had 17 days of suspension). Some comments from his teachers: “... follows directions & volunteers to assist.... Phoenix was chosen by his group to be their leader during lab assignments. He gets along well with his classmates.”, “Phoenix has always been very hard working and respectful in my class”, “Phoenix has had an excellent attitude and has shown a desire to not only achieve but to excel.”. To be clear, no criminal charges were pressed, and my son is very close to the family of the girl who was the victim. He has been on two out of state trips with this family. Please sign this petition if you agree with this statement: “Phoenix Ibanez should be commended for his just efforts to try and help and protect his friend who has Tourette’s Syndrome when she was graphically threatened to be beaten and raped.” My son punched the perpetrator in the nose. We have the full support of this girls family. Why is the decision to systematically remove a valiant and thriving pupil from school in favor of a sexual predator? What message does this send?
