He blames his teacher, Miss Narwin, and when she reprimands him for humming the national anthem during homeroom (school rules dictate 'respectful, silent attention'), he defies her. Eventually he's sent to the assistant principal, who, unable to convince Philip to alter his behavior, invokes a suspension. . . . After a newspaper reporter prints a biased, inflammatory version of the story, Phil's expulsion takes on patriotic overtones and becomes a local political hot potato that causes major problems for everyone concerned. 6 A C D NH P W
