School Zero Tolerance Gone Wrong

These past six days, since I'm a mother and grandmother, I have been anxiously watching the news reporting about the 17 year old Eagle Scout that was suspended from his school for having a knife stored in his locked car.According to articles from News 10 in Albany, New York, found at: http://www.wten.com/global/story.asp?s=11283345 and the follow up article at: http://www.wten.com/Global/story.asp?S=11316706 the zero tolerance enforced by this school district could have marred the future of this brilliant outstanding young man.Now, I am for the safety of our students while under the care of our public school employees, but not to the determent of their future. My prayer would be that these employees, elected or hired, realize that their first concern should be a safe education.My opinion is that there are deadly weapons readily available that are used by every student in every classroom in almost every grade. This is the deadly ballpoint pen. Maybe I’m wrong, do they only use computers now-a-days?P.S. This was also posted on asAmom.ning as a discussion

  • For me, zero tolerance is a way for the school personnel to not have to use common sense or make any judgments. Just declare everything a weapon and be done with it. It doesn't matter if it's an Eagle Scout student who might have his chance to attend West Point destroyed, or if it's a 6 yr old boy using what he considered just a camping utensile. Come on people, use common sense and stop taking the lazy way out.
