Once again, zero tolerance equals zero intelligence.They're expelling a seventh grader for....drug dealing? Murder? Assault? Cursing? Burning the flag? Nope - something much worse - doodling.
The zero tolerance policies that have taken hold of the nations schools are an excuse that brainless, spineless cowards in the administrative portion of education have taken to like rats to a maze. Instead of deciding anything about student behaviour on say, the student behaviour and circumstances surrounding it, they want a form telling them what to do...More and more I wonder if we're facing a future of worm like bureaucrats who get their decisions from procedures and not thought
