    Birth-Control Pill Lands Fairfax Student 2-Week Suspension, Possible Expulsion

    Who makes up these regulations, anyway? Oh yeah, the same bureaucrats that have been doing such a great job on public education. I suppose if this teenager had gone to a bathroom stall to take her pill, this would be non-issue.

    When my oldest hit high school she always carried around some ibuprofen in her purse. Going to the nurse with cramps for some? Waste of time. I told her just make sure you're in the bathroom when you take it.

    If you take away the opportunity for kids to be responsible, how will they learn to be responsible?

    It's a shame that parents have to teach their kids to be secretive about something like this.

    These rules don't work and they need to be changed. How does giving this teen a 2 week suspension ameliorate the situation?

    Almost everything that goes on in school is as dumb as this and people wonder why kids come out not knowing anything.

    I guess I did teach her to be secretive - but only when necessary. Like if you come home late at night, walk toe/heel so no one hears you. :D

    What the fuck? If the ACLU hasn't already done anything, this could be another school for me to send legal threats to.
