"According to UPI: 'A Massachusetts school district superintendent said a memo banning sixth graders from carrying pencils was written without district approval. North Brookfield School District interim Superintendent Gordon Noseworthy said Wendy Scott, one of two sixth-grade teachers at North Brookfield Elementary School, did not get approval from administrators before sending the memo to all sixth-grade parents, the Worcester Telegram & Gazette reported Thursday. The memo said students would no longer be allowed to bring writing implements to school. It said pencils would be provided for students in class and any students caught with pencils or pens after Nov. 15 would face disciplinary action for having materials 'to build weapons.'"
No pencils... wow.
Oh key-rist. . .another object for TSA to ban. . .for “safety.”

Meanwhile the same teacher pobably hands out the condoms
Whom God would destroy, He first makes mad.
The entire world has gone insane. The planet Earth is now a "loony bin".
In other news, any teacher or administrator caught in possession of a working brain will be prosecuted for theft, since it obviously belongs to someone else.
But what about paper cuts?
So I guess that “for safety” we will only be able to use crayons from now on?
Here we go again!
Yes I used this weapon to stab a fellow student who would not keep his hands off my desk. This was probably l954, or 55. Wish they would do something about these weapons before someone gets killed.
You can have my pencil when you pry it out of my cold, dead.....never mind.
Sounds like that district needs a prison, not a public learning facility.
Apparently the teacher who sent this out jumped the gun and it was just a proposal.
You know what is funny? My wife couln’t take cuticle scizzors on an airplane but we were allowed to board the same plane with her 10 inch aluminum knitting needles.
Idioticy. H’mmm, I wonder if he’ll authorize quill pens? Whoops, nope, I remembered one needs to have a knife to make the point on the end of the quill. And we can’t have knives in school.
What about banning feet and hands? A person can be kicked to death by another person’s feet. Hands can be used to choke a person to death. I guess the superintendent will ban children from bringing their hands and feet to school next.
