And who gives all these school officials authority, they have proven over and over to be some of the dumbest people on the planet.
Please teachers, do not take offense, there are some good ones out there, but there are some really bad ones too. For example, my neighbor will be the kids kindergarten teacher, she asked me how I tell the twins apart. They are FRATERNAL twins? One is blonde, the other has red hair, one is 3 inches taller than the other one. Heck they do not even look like brothers, they look like cousins!
My wife is an elem. teacher in Ankeny and she would agree with some of the things you said. If she were in the situation with the girl, she either would have cut the meat for the girl, taken the knife and talked to the girl and parents or at least gotten the principal and come up with a logical, calm solution.
Is the red hair the reason we only see pictures of your other son? :wink:Quote:

I think most people easily recognize that it isn't the classroom teacher making many of these ridiculous decisions or policies. But district admins, school boards and more often than not - the city/county attorneys for the district.
Three men become shipwrecked on an island, where they are captured by savages. The savages are decently nice ones, and explain their plight to these men. They have plenty of food, but they have overhunted the wild boars on the island, whose skin they used for their canoes. They chief explains to the men that they must die, and their hides will be used for the savages' canoes. However, the men may choose how they wish to die.
The first man says, "well, why don't you just hang me" So, the savages set up a noose on a palm tree, and take care of that man, immediately taking his body off to skinned.
The second man says, "Just drown me" So, the savages set up a trough of water, and hold the man under, who goes quite peacefully.
The third man asks, "May i kill myself?" The savages think for a minute, and see no reason why he shouldn't be able to that. "sure" the chief says.
"may i have two forks?" says the man. Now, these savages are somewhat civilized, and happen to have a couple on hand, which they give to him.
As soon as the man receives the forks, he starts stabbing himself wildly in the chest, screaming "SCREW YOU AND YOUR CANOES!!!!!"
The first thing I did when I saw this, was click on the link to see what state it was in. I was a little surprised that it happened in FL, but probably shouldn't be. What is the real problem is that a 15 year old who shoots and kills someone will be treated as a child, while a 10 year old with a knife will be treated like an adult.
