Zero tolerance is such a pile o.... Oh wait. No, never mind. The response was completely appropriate to the situation.

I hope someone is looking into that child's home life.

MustardTiger: I played with pocket knives when I was a youngling. I turned out ok. But then again, I never threatened any other children with them. I was taught to take care of them. This kid is probably going down a bad road. They should check out his home life.


Same...

I learned about knives from my father, who taught me to keep my knives razor sharp at all times, and to handle them with utmost care. For example, when handing a knife to someone, always handle first and wait for them to say "thank you" before releasing the blade. One of the more important things he taught me was to never just bring a knife into places I shouldn't and never brandish a knife at someone unless I need to kill them.

This was decades ago, but I used to be in the Boy Scouts. I had a pocket knife in my backpack, because I had gone camping over the weekend and it was in a side compartment I had forgotten to empty. Yep you better believe the school had a problem with this. Despite the fact those blades are tiny and pretty dull, and you can't do much with them other than cut sticks or rope.

Looks like one of those high-capacity assault knives.

It seems like we were in another age back in the 20th century when a pocketknife or a multitool wasn't cause for a campus-wide lockdown.  I'd have been expelled a thousand times over with the rules today.


Same here. I had a swiss army knife from Boy Scouts that had my name engraved it it from the factory.

I was proud of that thing and carried it everywhere...but then again, I never tried to kill anyone with it or slash up the seats, etc.

I bought myself a knife while on a first grade field trip to the Stuttgart Zoo.  Even borrowed a couple pfennigs from the chaperone...  It was a horribly cheap little piece of souvenir trash.

Did get into trouble, teacher took it away and drove me home to meet with my parents.  I was given it back about a year later, along with a decent Swiss Army knife.

Agree with all comments; however--

"He maybe said something to her and she felt threatened," the principal said????? WTF???

Just tell us what happened and she got scared. Don't feel like you have to be all low-key and legalistic.

My second day of being a substitute teacher was spent covering in-school suspension for a KINDERGARTENER, so I'm getting a kick...

\as he did, out the door, before the end of that year
\\literally every sibling of that family was kicked out eventually
