Not the best reason ever to suspend a child that age. Especially for 3 days - in-school suspension or not. What a waste.

That said, it really is incumbent on the parent to know what a school does/doesn't allow. It's also important as a parent to know what your kid is putting in his/her backpack and bringing to school.

he should have brought drugs to sell instead, some here appear to think that is ok & should not be punished.
Holy Strawman, Batman! I said a high school student should not be EXPELLED for selling some pot. Not that it was OK or should not be punished.

A NERF gun is more dangerous than pot, anyway.

What was it that jkcerda said in the other thread ...?

They are free to walk away if they don't want the help :rolleyes:
That could be applied in this case too.

Don't like how the school runs things?

Feel free to walk away.

Right JK?

apples/oranges/green clovers/pink balloons, schools is not "free", our taxes pay for it. kids HAVE to be in SOME sort of school, private or homeschooling. zero tolerance = zero common sense

This has nothing to do with firearms legislation or politics.

It is a symptom of the sort of mindless "zero tolerance" policies that have plagued school boards and school districts for twenty years or more.

If you'd like to discuss that particular subject (rather than the beaten to death self-pity of the board's gun enthusiasts) then this article, in Reason magazine is a good place to start.

Virginia Beach sixth-grader Adrionna Harris took a razor away from a troubled student who was cutting himself and threw it in the trash. When school administrators found out, they gave her a certificate of merit for helping a classmate.

Ha, ha! Of course they didn’t. They gave her a 10-day suspension, with a recommendation that she be expelled. For three or four seconds there, she was in possession of a dangerous object in violation of the school’s zero-tolerance policies.

kid's father says;

McDonald said had he known his child was planning to take the blue, orange and green plastic toy to class, he would've told the child not to take it.
and the kid;

"He told me he didn't know they would think it was a weapon or he wouldn't have brought it to school," McDonald said.;
anyway, it turns out the suspension has been changed to "in school suspension"


seems like an excess of anti anti gun hysteria being expended on this even :p

Huh, I didn't realize mild euphoria was DANGEROUS.
a girl suffering from that "mild euphoria" was recently shot when she showed up & pounded on a guys door at 4:30 am, people do crazy stuff while they enjoy that "mild euphoria"
was the nerf gun loaded? :rolleyes:

Failed at school? No, it was merely a 'deferred success'
