My old roommates and I did this often enough that we had to stop putting soda in the beer fridge.

That's dumb. He basically got suspended for giving his teacher a free beer.

I don't get it. He turned it in to the teacher - it's not like he was trying to get away with it. He could have shotgunned it in the bathroom and had a small chance of getting caught. I'm OK with teaching that actions have consequences, even mistakes, but three day suspension and two months of alternative school? Pretty over the top if it really was a mistake.
 
Now if they had caught him shotgunning it in the bathroom, that's another matter.

Yeah, I think the punishment is a little out of proportion.

I believe the issue was that his teacher is in his father's brew club. No blue mountains allowed! If it had been a chimay? No problem

Funny protest from the students could include all of them bringing a can of beer into school and giving it to their teacher first hour.  Whole school to the alternative school for 60 days.

Sadly, this would require somebody to give/sell them beer illegally. That person would probably go to jail.

My first thought was maybe the kid didn't have a clean record before this incident...

If a teacher came to work drunk, but turned themself in before getting caught, admitting the mistake... would they be disciplined? I don't know, I'm not a teacher, just curious if anyone knows...

Actually, this happened recently someplace else in texas. Teacher was drinking in the classroom and the kids turned her in.
