Zero Tolerance Means Zero ThinkingAugust 29th, 2012
When I was kid I was sent home because of “zero tolerance” rules twice. Once because I brought a Star Trek action figure to school that had a little plastic phaser rifle, and once because I had a can opener. I thought I had seen it all. But I never thought anyone could construe crossed fingers as a weapon, but now they have.
In Nebraska the Grand Island Public School is banning a three-year-old deaf boy from signing his own name because they say the gesture of crossing his index and middle fingers resembles a gun. And under policy 8470 any student possessing anything that “looks like a weapon” will be “subject to mandatory suspension or expulsion procedures.”
Is there anything else to say? You’d have to a colossal imbecile to think that was a good idea; so I can only assume every teacher and administrator that allowed this decision to go forward unopposed is a buffoon of the highest order… and yet they are tasked with educating children.
