    GAY STUDENT SETTLES LAWSUIT This story could fall into the WWHS category; if a youngster doesn’t fit into the public school norm, he or she is liable to be harassed by fellow students or even administrators.

    Henkle’s story suggested that his school was anything but a safe haven. He said a group of kids once had tried to lasso him and drag him behind a truck. When he sat, quivering and afraid, in a classroom and called for help, it took almost an hour for the administration to respond.

    Henkle said he had been transferred to three schools and been told by one principal that he “wouldn’t have him (Henkle) acting like a fag in his school. ” Henkle said the harassment was so pervasive that other kids would intimidate students who wouldn’t taunt him.
