Surely someone will blame this on liberals, but I'm very liberal and I think this is retarded.

Leonard, a first-year principal, didn't respond to several requests for comment, deferring to district administrators, who said the toys with miniature rifles and grenades violated a zero-tolerance weapons policy.

Apparently, we just need robots to enforce rules rigidly. Why bother employing this waste of space when a TI-85 can do his job just as "effectively"?

This is pretty much textbook dumbassery.

Remember that time in ET when the Fed's guns were replaced with walkie talkies?!

5th grade? Mortarboards? Really?

Wow. So... much... stupid.

But if you really want to get your blood boiling, check out some of the horror stories that have resulted from these "zero tolerance" policies in schools.

"Zero tolerance" makes a good sound bite on the local news, but it practice it is a horrible policy that destroys lives (and results in lesser bullshiat like TFA) all to solve a problem the largely doesn't exist.

What I find really amusing/sad is that the weapons weren't "removed", they "had the tips clipped off", a la sawed-off shotguns.

Remember kids - anythings a weapon if you beat someone with it hard enough (mayhps this principle?). Its terrible to think that a model of a soldier would have a gun - they musta ran outa flowers and chipmunks! In any case i think using zero tolerance in schools is farked up. Any message a child might interpret from a .5 inch green rifle is dwarfed by the concept that they can make a mistake on a test but never in real life.

God forbid children LEARN anything in school...

/I have zero tolerance for people excusing thier actions with zero tolerance policies.
/if your in a position to exercise authority then you should damnwell show some responibility when you use it and account for your actions.
/dont like weapons for any other reason than keeping good king george at bay...

Step down from the education system, retards. If you can't distinguish the difference between a tiny plastic replica in the hands of a toy army man, you are not intelligent enough to education the antions youth.

However, we always need more drones to do the simpler jobs. Miss Idiot Principal, report to 7-11. They have an opening for night manager.
