The prevalence of zero tolerance policies is from previous accusations of racism. You have to give a student who brings a steak knife with lunch the same penalty as someone who pulls a switchblade in class to avoid any accusations of disparate treatment. Now Holder is demanding disparate treatment if "favor" of minorities. And I say "favor" because not punishing and removing the troublemakers is damaging the education of the rest of the students, thus dragging down even those who still want to learn.

(Everyone get online for Obamacare on 10/1. Overload the system and crash it hard!)
at the root of it all is discipline. None at home, no preparation for learning takes place, just running amok until it’s time to send them off to gov’mnt baby sitter for 13-14 years.
It’s no wonder we lag the world in test scores. Education has been reduced to the lowest denominator.
