Small Knife in Lunchbox Gets N.C. Student Suspended, Charged With Weapon Possession - FoxNews.com
What a wonderful example of why we need a zero tolerance policies.
Utter stupidity. I took a switch blade to school when I was in 4th grade. It was confiscated until the end of the year and given back to me. I took inert grenades, and other weapons to show and tell, stuff I picked up on the practice fields at Benning and Sill, and everyone was cool with that. Stupid pigs.
This "no tolerance" business goes way, way beyond the pale. The girl is right - once that incident goes on her school record it will follow her the rest of her life - and that is way beyond sad.
The principal needs to be given enough flack from the community that it amounts to him "being rode out of town on a rail".
That's right, punish the good students. You know, the ones who make honest mistakes like grabbing the wrong lunch box in the morning before leaving the house.
All the while the bad students can get away with whatever they want because the administration is scared of them.
Do you think they're searching the lunchboxes of the ones that probably bring guns to school? No, they're searching the lunchboxes of the school's star athletes and the students that are taking college level courses because they need to fulfill that "random search" requirement and they aren't afraid of those students.
you mean why they are stupid
to me "zero tolerance" means "zero common sense"
