    That guy Schurr is a jerk.

    Who the hell is he to judge whether "discipline" is emphasized at the students home??? The kid is 8; 8 year olds make mistakes and misbehave because they are kids! They are learning such things as discipline and respect for others. It doesn't happen overnight.

    I have always felt, from the first day I saw what Zero Tolerance was all about, that it should be called:

    Zero Intelligence.

    "Zero Tolerance" was a buzzword/policy of the Army in the early 80s. All it accomplished was creating an atmosphere where leaders at all levels were afraid to make a decision, subordinates were not allowed to make mistakes and learn from those mistakes, and productivity/efficiency dropped to nothing. As has been demonstrated many times on this board, nothing is black and white; zero tolerance requires absolutes to be effective.

    Zero Tolerance in schools require common sense.

    Something that many teachers either don't have or are not allowed to use.
