I have a 6 and a 7 year old and I don’t check what they have in their book-bags when we leave in the morning. What the hell am I supposed to be, a grade school TSA agent? I would really be mad if this happened to them over something so ridiculous. But after all was said and done I think I would be relieved to know my kids wouldn’t be around these people any longer. I wouldn’t want them getting their ‘stupid’ all over my children.
I wonder what WOULD happen if 80 1st graders all showed up at school with water pistols one day. Little plastic water squirters in florescent green and orange. Would they expel every single one of them? I bet I know what they would do. They would decide to keep the kids in school and give them ‘counseling’ while getting the police to charge every one of the parents with neglect or something. Under no circumstances would they accept that it was a stupid rule.
One time I forgot to check my 6-year-old’s hand to make sure he didn’t have fingers with him, and sure enough, he got to school, pointed his finger at someone, said bang, and got suspended for having an arm rifle.
