Update: 12/11/13: The charges have been dropped by the school. The parents of the little girl don’t want Hunter kissing her any more.
The WSJ posted an article about the possible cause of this overreaction by the school district and it goes directly to the Obama administration:
In April 2011 Russlynn Ali, then assistant education secretary for civil rights, issued a directive in which she threatened to withhold federal money from any educational institution that failed to take a hard enough line against sexual misconduct to ensure “that all students feel safe in their school.” The directive’s preamble declared: “The sexual harassment of students, including sexual violence, interferes with students’ right to receive an education free from discrimination and, in the case of sexual violence, is a crime.”
“If a school knows or reasonably should know about student-on-student harassment that creates a hostile environment, Title IX [of a 1972 civil rights law] requires the school to take immediate action to eliminate the harassment, prevent its recurrence, and address its effects,” Ali wrote. The music teacher and other school officials were faithfully if ridiculously executing that command when they investigated the tip from the kids who tattled.
While the directive recommends discretion with younger children, it leaves the schools vulnerable to lawsuits and they have to protect themselves and the taxpayers.
Expect more of this. Change.org, communist Van Jones’ website is urging the federal government to pass ‘Erin’s Law.’ Their site claims it will ‘prevent Child Sexual Abuse, by having schools educating children on sexual abuse in a child friendly manner.’ One can only imagine what this could morph into.
A six-year old boy in Colorado, Hunter Yelton, was suspended from school for kissing a girl on her hand. The Superintendent said he was guilty of sexual harassment. Hunter and the little girl have ‘crushes’ on each other.

He is now considered a sex offender by the school and has a record. He has no idea what ‘sex’ is and his mother is saying he is asking questions like what does ‘sex’ mean? She said sexual harassment should never be used with a six-year old.
He has past offenses for kissing the same girl on the cheek and for rough housing.
The Superintendent said they have a ‘no-touch’ policy. They also have a no-common-sense policy.
This mom needs to sue this district.
