Educational Idiocracy

4-Year-Old Brings Shell Casing to Preschool. Principal Suspends Him for 7 Days, Calls Child Services.
A four year old took a shell casing to school and when it was discovered found himself expelled for seven days and told "that if his "enthusiasm for guns continued," he would be expelled." He also apparently likes to pretend his toys are guns. Where that my child, the Principal would have been asked some pointed questions about where she got telling me how to raise my child, and told an "enthusiasm" for guns was a damn good thing. I'd have probably been arrested. There were several reasons my kids where home schooled. This is but one.

The mother of the four year old was more restrained and told her story on Facebook where it went viral and hopefully embarrassed and brought discredit to the staff of A Place for Growth. Honestly the name of the school should have been a clue. Zero tolerance, it's what bureaucrats do instead of something useful.

H/T to Uncle.
