Could be the kid lied about where the knife came from. Zero tolerance for weapons of any kind in school today. I doubt they offer Metal Shop anymore as an elective.

This is ridiculous and has absolutely nothing to do with political sway. Personally, this story does not pass the smell test. There's more to this--at least that's my guess. And frankly, schools are damned if they DO and damned if they DON'T.
What we know for sure is that weapons of ANY kind are NOT allowed at school.
Handbooks are sent home before school starts. Rules and procedures are spelled out in detail. Parents AND students are required to sign and return the form saying they have read and understand the requirements.
When I bought backpacks for my kids, I opened them up and looked in all the pockets---doesn't everyone DO that before they purchase something?? Don't you look for flaws, rips, or tears? Aren't you concerned with the quality and strength of the backpack??
Like I said...there's something rotten in Denmark, errr....backpack land.
Thanks from Twisted Sister and Daws77

It's not the 1980's.
I need to tell you that?

People kept gun in racks in their trucks during hunting season. No biggie. Fuck they made potato guns in shop. By the time my brother went there they had cops on campus, locker searches and even aspirin was banned.
Thanks from coke

A compass was required in grade school during math used to draw circles and arcs and has a long sharp point. Has this mathematical tool been banned yet?

Yup, I just sent back a pair of those handbooks and said that the rules were not clearly stated.

No signature. They are both in school as I write this.

Last year a girl left a box cutter in her car that she used for work. This was in her car. She was suspended. They were not going to let her walk. She was to graduate w/ honors. I don't remember the final outcome.

I kept seeing Common Core on here and asked my public school teacher sister what that means? She did not delve into politics but said that all teachers have to do it.

edit: She did say in so many words that we have to teach the test.
Thanks from Clara007
