Her Dad, Michael Barba, said in an interview with NBCNews that he was proud of his daughter and the project that she did and that he believed that the suspension should be taken off of her record. From several news reports, I've gathered that the real trouble aroused when a parent saw some of the postings on the fake Facebook page and alerted the police. Then the school suspended her.
“I just created the video in order to raise awareness of the major issue that’s bullying,” Jessica Barba lamented to Matt Lauer on the TODAY show. “I don’t understand why I’m being punished for it.”
Jessica's dad got just what he wished for. The school district won't make any comments, but they have erased the suspension from Jessica's record and she has returned back to school. However, I think they owe this 15-year-old a HUGE apology and an A+ on her anti-bullying project!
