The principal of the school is named Denise Schwartz.
If they don't work, then there is another reason for this railroading. My guess is that school administrators own stock in the alternative schools and get money per head.
Can't fix stupid, eh?
It has always been interesting to me that the best plan that enlightened, progressive, highly educated educators could come up with was “zero tolerance” ...
The school board ALMOST got hounded into sanity. They held an emergency meeting in which they changed the mandatory “weapons” punishment for kindergarteners and first graders to a mere 3-5 day suspension instead of 45 (apparently 2nd graders and up still get 45 days for bringing ordinary eating utensils to school).
If I was the kid’s mother, I’d be inclined to pick up a sharp pencil and forcefully stab the nearest board member who failed to speak up for eliminating the mandatory suspension entirely. Some things are worth going to jail for. She’s got the national media focused on this — perfect time to make the “point” that under this idiotic rule pencils and pens also need to be classified as “weapons”.
...or get into a quick game of ‘mumbly peg’ with it at recess or lunch!
I remember that so well!!
Celebrate diversity while we are being dragged down to the lowest common denominator.
The administration should all get as much scorn and embarassment the public can heap on them for their paranoid schizophrenic idiocy. They have totally lost their perspective, and are unfit to educate anybody.
