Both these stories come from the States and both I find ridiculous… good examples of how ”Zero Tolerance” has gone too far!
The boy’s mother said, “It’s not like he went up to the woman and tried to grab her or touch her in a sexual way. So why would he be suspended for two days?” A district spokeswoman told the station the boy was suspended for inappropriate behavior after making inappropriate statements, but said she couldn’t go into detail.
STORY #2: A 13-year-old boy in Albuquerque, New Mexico was arrested after he “burped audibly” in P.E. class!!!!
A lawsuit alleges that the seventh grader’s teacher also had him hauled off to a juvenile detention facility — without notifying his parents — for the burp that “[interfered] with public education.” The civil rights attorney who filed the lawsuit said that more than 200 students were handcuffed and arrested in the past three years for nonviolent misdemeanors.
Only in the States…
This boggles my mind! Do you agree with any of this?!
