    Another student was suspended for drinking a big gulp.

    Later, another student was suspended for using "too much salt".

    I can see a kid squeezing a pop tart, and the filling hitting him in the eye. Made me laugh.

    Schools need to make up their ****ing minds

    AOL.com Video - Florida Mom Calls Gun Picture in Homework Assignment 'Unacceptable'

    You know - regarding this linked-to story/video (where the image of a gun was presented with the idea that kids would fill in the missing letter to complete the related word. . . the mother says something that made me wonder (in the end) - she says that "his father was killed by a gun" . . . you know - it is normal and encouraged that when kids experience a traumatic event that they benefit from drawing it out and writing about it. It helps them cope and work through emotions. Like when we had an accident many years ago - the kids drew pictures of it a lot.

    So in our current society where a firearm can likely be tied to the reason why a child's world was turned upside-down - they're now sending the message that 'most of the time expressing your negative feelings is ok - as long as it doesn't involve a gun'

    Which is BS . . . if the kid lost a parent and they're drawing pictures of it they need to just let that child work through it without punishing them for it. It's not the children's fault that guns are in our society and are a prevalent part of many people's lives.

    Or what about firearms being used to hunt - is that not a good representation? Putting food on one's table is a part of life. Yet these overreactions are teaching students that it's bad - no matter what is done with it - or how it affects them emotionally.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Zero tolerance is for zeros.

    That may be a bit of an overstatement. I think though it could be possible they are trying to teach children to hate and fear guns.

    That's why we made carrot guns.

    This is sickening, and why I'm a huge advocate of home schooling, where we can teach our kids to think instead of just react to the latest politically correct idea. I hope these parents do something to fight back. Poor kid. How traumatic for him

    What, do schools have an Article 134 for suspensions or something?
