24. The article, which you claim to have read, said the others weren't punished.

From the article:

During the awards ceremony for the project, several students gave the salute when the student who portrayed Hitler went up to receive her award and were not reprimanded. 


The headline does not imply the students were "unconnected" to the girl. The headline explicitly states they were her "fellow students." And she did report it calmly, and privately, for weeks. As the article notes. She was bulled over her requests. Then, at the ceremony, she tells the students to put their hands down, and she gets sent to the principal's office---not the Nazi saluters! That is pretty newsworthy. Hence the headline: "11-year-old sent to principal's office for telling fellow students to stop making Nazi salute"

As headlines go, that's about as accurate as it gets.

And doing Nazi salutes is wrong anywhere, not just "wrong in a school."
