Why can the school suspend me for a fight off school grounds, on the weekend, with someone who doesn’t even go to my school?

I got in a fight when I was in the Eighth Grade on a Saturday at a gas station with somebody I didn’t even know (that didn’t go to my school). I got 5 days of suspension for it. Why is my school allowed to do that even though they weren’t involved in any way?

    The school has no power over what you do off school property. The law, which nobody is exempt from, does though. If I were you I'd be happy with my 5 day school suspension and glad I wasn't thrown in a juvenile detention center. Most kids would consider 5 days out of school a reward rather than a punishment anyway. School IS the punishment.

    It's July where I live and kids aren't even in school.
