One Thing I Fear Being A Parent-To-Be
This kind of crap. A girl brings scissors to school, and she ends up being arrested and threatened with explusion? Part of me thinks that there's more to stories like this, that the school and/or teacher(s) had something against the girl and were looking for a way to disipline her. On the other hand, schools seem so jittery against lawsuits that they have these "zero tolerance" policies so they can suspend their common sense and do blanket judgements for the most ridiculous "violations" of the policies.
I'm not a big advocate of home schooling, but when I hear stories like this I sometimes think twice about the educational system...
