Ahmed Mohamed withdraws from school that suspended him over clock

  • Irving MacArthur High School student Ahmed Mohamed

DALLAS » The family of a 14-year-old Muslim boy who got in trouble over a homemade clock mistaken for a possible bomb has withdrawn the boy from his suburban Dallas high school.

Ahmed Mohamed’s father, Mohamed El-Hassan Mohamed, told The Dallas Morning News that he has withdrawn all of his children from the Irving Independent School District schools. Mohamed says the family is still deciding where to send the children to school.

Ahmed has said he brought the clock to MacArthur High School in Irving to show a teacher. Officials say he was arrested after another teacher saw it and became concerned. Ahmed wasn’t charged, but he was suspended from school for three days.

News of the arrest sparked an outpouring of support for Ahmed, including from President Barack Obama.
