Parents Of Suicide Victim Speak On Camera, Blast School System

FAIRFAX, Va.  (WUSA) -- "I can't say he was treated like a criminal. Because in our judicial system, criminals are treated better," says Steve Stuban. His son, Nick, committed suicide January 20, 2011.

Steve and his wife Sandy, who has Lou Gehrig's disease and speaks with a voice synthesizer, want to make clear Nick did nothing illegal. The 15-year-old Woodson High School football player admitted to buying one capsule of a substance called JWH-018, after he had learned it was a legal substance.

"He said it was the dumbest decision he ever made. It was a mistake," Steve Stuban says.

The Stubans say at Nick's hearing, administrators didn't even consider their only child's situation at home...or other factors.

"It was degrading, demeaning, questioning. Not trusting him, stating that they weren't certain that they could trust any of his testimony. And we thought we were dealing with the facts as presented," says Steve Stuban.

Summer Meals Program for Kids Needs Meal Sites and Volunteers

Summer Meals Program for Kids Needs Meal Sites and Volunteers

From Fairfax County Office of Public Affairs:

In Fairfax County, approximately 44,000 kids receive free and reduced meals during the school year. For many of these kids, when the school year ends, so does the opportunity for consistent, nutritious meals. Fortunately, there is a program that provides nutritious meals to children during the summer.  Neighborhood and Community Services, in partnership with the USDA and local organizations provides free, nutritious breakfasts and lunches to children ages 4 to 18. These meals help children on free and reduced lunch get the nutrition they need to learn, play, and grow throughout the summer months when they are out of school.

Father Of Suicide Victim Demands Changes In School Policy

FAIRFAX, Va.  (WUSA) -  A civil rights organization is calling Fairfax County Public School's discipline policy, "draconian."  

The policy is under great scrutiny since the suicides of Josh Anderson 22 months ago and Nick Stuban last month. Stuban had been a linebacker on the Woodson High School Football team.

In a letter to Fairfax County Superintendent Jack Dale on behalf of Stuban's parents, the Rutherford Institute says, "Many are concerned that the process subjects students and their families to inhumane, impersonal and overly harsh administrative hearings where the Fourteenth Amendment requirements of due process are neglected."
