    wonder if OH will adopt the same laws other states are adopting to prevent schools systems from doing this sort of thing.
    Since the school had already adopted the policy, and presumably was not challenged, then the parents deserve the aftermath.

    Stupid **** like this needs to be nipped in the bud immediately, not after the fact.

    How much you want to bet that the gun haters don't include, the number of school shootings by a finger , cut out cardboard gun or gun shaped cookie, in their statistics?

    yes a kid being a kid and doing nothing wrong deserves suspension because the principal of the school is to stupid to use his own head and brain.
    we played cops and robbers and cowboys and indians all the time.

    we had laser tag and water guns. we shot paintball at each other and everything else. there is nothing wrong with it unless you agree that no thinking policies are good
    to go by.

    I don't stay quiet when the school does something stupid.

    My sons teacher wants me to grade my son at home and send the report card to school.

    I told them I will not do that.

    I need to know what is happening at school, they do not know what is happening at home.

    I do not need to be graded as a parent. I don't even understand why they would want that, but I made it clear it will not be happening.

    My question is that if any connection to a gun are a shape of a gun is to be connected to a punishment in the kids head, who is going to volunteer to go into the military?

    The psychological damage will be long lasting.

    Nasty boy you are!

    So you think that the teachers are being paid to grade your child's work.....oh...oops....wait a minute!

    We work with our kids at home with their homework, and interact with their teachers, but there are limits.

    We have never been asked invasive questions.....yet.

    I want the school to do their job and not worry about what is my department. That is not to say I don't work with them, but why would they need to know how my child is behaving in my house?

    Guns in schools are no laughing matter, I suspect we can all agree on that? While a 3 day suspension is ridiculous, a consequence of some sort is fair. I suspect the true spirit of the idea was to remove even "joking" about guns from schools. I have no problem with that idea whatsoever.
