So how are those zero tolerance policies working for ya? How about the mandatory bullying lectures and campaigns? Not working out too well are they?
A high school student is forbidden from speaking at her 2008 high school graduation because she planned on mentioning her faith, God and Christ in her speech. She refused to eliminate the references.
A prayer ban is instituted in San Antonio and a high school senior is threatened with arrest if she thanks Jesus as her Lord and Savior during her valedictorian speech.
In Vermont, a high school valedictorian is told “he couldn’t include specific information about how God has changed his life in his commencement address.”
Thanks to inflexible zero tolerance policies, kids have been suspended from school for …
… possession of Midol, Tylenol, Alka Seltzer, cough drops and Scope mouthwash – contraband that violates zero-tolerance, anti-drug policies. Students have been expelled for Halloween costumes that included paper swords and fake spiked knuckles, as well as for possessing rubber bands, slingshots and toy guns – all violations of anti-weapons policies.
A second-grader from Alexandria, La., was booted for bringing her grandfather’s gold-plated pocket watch to school; the timepiece had a tiny knife attached.
A 14-year-old student is suspended for violation of the no-hugging policy at school.
One student is expelled and the other suspended after one of them used the other’s asthma inhaler during a tough workout.
In the meantime, no official action has happened to the kids who viscously bullied a school bus monitor in New York. School is over … they can’t dish out any punishment yet. These are mean kids – kids will be mean and that’s just how life is – but it’s the parents who set the tone in the household that extends to life and actions outside of the household.
When speaking with the bus monitor, Matt Lauer mentioned…
I think they’re narrow-minded monsters, to be perfectly honest with you. I think their parents should be ashamed of them.
I would think the parents would be ashamed of their kids to a certain extent, but don’t you think it’s the parents that should be ashamed? Maybe if the parents thought they would be held accountable for their kids actions, the appropriate learning and discipline would be dished out in the household … where the problem starts in the first place.
But we’re told by Democrats, liberals, statists and Hillary Clinton that “it takes a village,” so I guess blame can spread out so much those responsible don’t really feel all that bad about what they do.
