When “Zero-Tolerance” Makes “Zero-Sense”

We’ve been reporting very regularly on ridiculous cases involving over-zealous school officials misinterpreting and wrongly enforcing “zero-tolerance” rules.
In March, we reported on an outrageous case of a seven-year-old Baltimore, Md. student who, according to a March 2, Daily Caller article, was suspended for two days for the nefarious act of shaping a breakfast pastry into what his teacher thought looked like a gun. Yes, a breakfast pastry.
According to the young student, he was eating the strawberry pastry during snack time and was biting off pieces in an attempt to shape it into a mountain. Apparently, the teacher thought the student’s handiwork instead looked like a gun, and escorted him to the principal’s office for prompt disciplinary action.
In a recent follow-up story, the Daily Caller reported on more bad news for the young victim of over-zealous school administrators.

How dumb are we?
The Sheeple and Clovers don’t get it.
And, the Gooferment Skrules are mindless idiots as well.
There’s a reason that teachers are the lowest rung on the academic ladder.
Those who can do; those who can’t teach; those who can’t teach, teach teaching. Obviously there’s another tier: those who can teach teaching and have no common sense become school bureaucrats!
Why torture children with this type of a system. Remember the Jack in the box model comes from Prussia. The objective was to make cannon fodder for the Army, good factory workers, and a pliable underclass that could be led easily by the elite!
Remind me again where the rich and politicians send their children?
