Children at Park Elementary School went home with a letter today explaining there was a disruption in school. Seven year old Josh Welch, and his father, say the disruption lead to a two day suspension for the second grader in Brooklyn Park.

The kid is ADHD which means he's probably a pain in the ass on a regular basis but the teachers overreacted. That's because they're stupid.

I have become convinced that the vast majority of school teachers are made from the dumbest of all college students. There are good teachers, yes, but by and large education majors are the most gullible, easily lead, moronic sheep of all college students. Well, maybe social majors but that's about it. Public schools are not trying to turn out individuals who can make it on their own. They want good little workers like bugs in a colony. Smart enough to be efficient but not smart enough to survive without the hive.

Deliberately brainwashing children to believe all guns are bad, even edible ones.

Any educator who resents the public's lack of respect for the ed business should read this and take it to heart.

Unfortunately, similar stories are legion. Good dedicated teachers are worth their weight in gold but are increasingly rare, and these fools give them all a bad name.

“Deliberately brainwashing children to believe all guns are bad, even edible ones.”

Exactly. This has far more to do with indoctrination than “discipline”.

My god...how things changed since I left school!! In woodworking class, I made a gun shaped key holder. In 4th grade, I remember playing 'Cowboys and Indians', with our fingers as guns.

Now, is the gun shaped pastry hurting anyone?? Should we have a 3 day waiting period for pastry??

ADHD is what I had in school. It was hard for me, but with the teachers I had, I enjoyed school.

There is stupid, and there is so stupid that it’s hard to believe that someone is breathing. How anyone lets their child go to a public school is beyond my comprehension. The people who run them lack common sense and basic reasoning skills. When I hear such nonsense, I am really, really ashamed that it is happening in this country.

Agree, Department of education, Arnie Duncan is from Chicago.. too many similar stories across US.

Arne Duncan: We need gun control, more early childhood education

Education Secretary Arne Duncan made clear in an interview with Bloomberg Radio that he plans to concentrate on early childhood education in President Obama’s second term,and that the country must deal with gun violence now.

Here's the problem...it's learning the difference between play and real. Teaching that play guns are as bad as real weapons is just plain stupid.

We played with toy guns all the time when we were kids...but never touched my dad's Brownie until it was time to learn to shoot.

But Josh’s dad is not happy
**********
This is a school near Baltimore, Maryland, a city and state that is totally dominated by leftist Democrats. They have a complete strangle hold on the state house in Annapolis. The governor is also a Dem. Josh’s dad shoud be prepared to deal with more insanity like this. It’s what Maryland is all about.

This is neither an overaction nor a lack of common sense/stupidity on the part of educators. Rather, this is a very calculated & well-thought out plan to indoctrinate children against guns. All gun owners will be ostracized as outcasts, same as we have done with smokers.

I’m 36 years old. I remember going to bars just 10 short years ago & having a cigarette with my martini. Now, just the mention of that gets me stares from younger colleauges like “you’re disgusting” or “what kind of person would even do such a thing”. The same thing is happening with guns. They’re starting with our kids. Trust me, in 5 years, they will change the public attitude regarding gun ownership

Incidents like this keep coming out of Maryland. Have the people there gone completely f*****g insane? Should the state lines be strung up to keep these loonies in? Apparently, Maryland has become a common-sense free zone. If you live there, and still have your sanity, leave now before it's too late.

Since the schools have, in their wisdom, declared such things threatening &/or dangerous, can we turn in wooden, or clay, or paper cut-out, or toy guns, or pictures of guns, or written descriptions or names of guns, or the written word - “gun,” at gun buy-back programs, and get a nice gift certificate?

Well like the old saying goes

Those who can, do. Those who can't, teach."

I've got a cousin who went to college to play softball, in the interim she got a teaching degree.

When 4 years of play time was over, she went back home, and NEVER ONCE looked for a teaching job.

I'm convinced that the vast majority of school teachers are basically the hairdressers of the college world. Somebody told them they had to do something with their life, and that they had to have college, so they took teaching.

I deal with schools all the time and I have expanded on the old saying.

Those who can...Do
Those who can’t...Teach
Those who can’t teach...Teach Gym
Those who can’t teach gym,,,Get a doctorate and become the principal.

My grandfather ALWAYS had a rifle or shotgun or both, propped up in the corner of the kitchen, in their farmhouse. My grandparents had 9 grandkids, and WE ALL KNEW not to touch the guns. We all had plastic guns, squirt guns, cap guns or bb guns to play with. But even at 4 or 5 years old, we KNEW to NEVER EVER touch the real guns.

I was probably about 8 or 9 when my uncle took me out to shoot his .22 for the first time. I was in my EARLY teens when I went deer hunting with them for the first time.

None of my cousins or I, ever played with the real guns, and none of us ever grew up having a fear of them.

I think it’s time for Prez BOzo to announced the formation of a gov’t program to register pastries. The fact that this perp may have actually said “bang, bang” proves he should be declared mentally ill, put on psychotropic drugs banned from ever owning a gun.

To all you crazy conservatives out there who’ll probably be saying, “But it was just a pastry” I say that today it’s a pastry but tomorrow he might be brandishing a loaf of garlic bread while he yells “rat-a-tat-tat!” It’s too horrible to think about. God bless the “educator” for catching this little criminal, hopefully he can be successfully indoctr. . .I mean rehabilitated. And God bless the “news” and “reporter” for having the courage to bring this dark story into the light.

You are absolutely correct.

Although I later got a teaching certificate, I took my college classes as a physics/chemistry major, not a teaching major.

The teaching majors in my classes took a watered-down version of the tests we took and received better grades for less work.

As a sub, I sometimes correct the lesson plans of the math and science teachers I sub for (it really pisses some off but some appreciate the help).

The type this teacher is the type that we need to seek removal by any legal means necessary.

Whether it is multiple complaints, unending letters to her and her supervisor - whatever. It could also mean like-minded parents banding together and suing her personally for violation of first amendment rights. Legally gather as much publically information about her as possible: credit searches, social accounts, etc..... and use it against her.

A tyrant like this needs to be stopped. It doesn’t matter how it is done as long as it is legal...
