Once again, “zero tolerance” equals “zero intelligence“:
Elliot Voge, 14, told Stoneybrook Middle School principal Jimmy Meadows he forgot that he had left the Swiss Army knife in his pocket after using it to whittle wood last month. The next day, just after he was dropped off at school by a classmate’s mother, he said he discovered the knife in his coat and immediately went to the office.
Nevertheless, Meadows suspended him and recommended expulsion.
I would have liked to hear the
moronprincipal’s side of the story, but I suspect it’s the same old, mindless “rules are rules, and they must be enforced.”
And they wonder why people home school.
