Karen and Magdiel Burgos, parents of 8-year-old Samuel Burgos, have been homeschooling their son for a year in Miramar, FL since he was expelled for accidentally bringing a plastic gun to school in his backpack. Though his indiscretion was clearly an innocent mistake, he has been ordered to stay more than a block away from the school and told that his only option is to attend a correctional school for problem children. Ginny Simone speaks to his parents who are outraged at the injustice of the inefficient and absurd 'zero tolerance' system that is keeping their son from his friends and his life.
