So as far as that goes my advice is do not sweat it.
Yes the principle was covering her own ass, and her explanation made about as much sense as a 3 dollar bill. What if someone came across the sharpened pencil she has, or the wire holding her notebook together. OR what if they had some Macguiver like kid and her was able to build a high explosive from some rusty nails and gum stuck under a desk?
Write or call this stupid, silly woman and tell her what you think
What the drat? I heard of aspirins being banned in the States before, but I never got why. Anybody?
Oh, and I`ve got enough sharp stuff in my pencil case to take over a small third world country, scalpel, home-made slingshot and all. I also brought a dull swiss knife to school once, mostly for the other tools, and the only teacher that cared said something about the law being dumb, and that he`d prefer to have a pair of scissors than my knife to defend himself. End of discussion, he let me continue to play with it while he continued the course.

and I know this has been said before but I`ve no problem repeating someone...WHY IS THIS NEWS? I DON`T CARE. WHY IS THIS ON IAB? I SERIOUSLY DON`T CARE.
That little girl was interested in Geology without even knowing it. She was looking for Geodes...And they treat her like she was going to shoot up the school. How retarded is that? "OMFG YOUR LEARNING! GTFO!"
teachers and adults need to talk to echother so they can set the kids straight...no wonder why every kid is becoming abusive teenagers, no one is talking to them.
1) Suspended? Wtf?2) Permanent record? Wtf?3) POLICE??? WTF!!4) When I was in grade school I did that all the time, I never got caught though, if I did I said something clever.5) Since when is this news? This does not qualify as `news`...
Pay more attention before calling someone else a tard. The video says she`s in 4th grade. Pay more attention! lol
yea and books too!!!!!!!!
As for you. Being someone with common sense and thinking how it must be hard to break open a rock with just a hammer.. I`m assuming she held the screwdriver onto the rock and hit the top of the screwdriver with the hammer...THUS! breaking open the rock..DUH.
Exactly what I thought when I listened to this, "Oh, geology, cool kid."
I oncen brought a small serrated bread knife to school...for my lucch....Canada rulkes. But then, it was i n the -eat lunch in thge classroom- grades.
That principal is a [email protected]
Here`s a common sense way of dealing with the problem:
The principal confiscates the hammer, screwdriver and rocks. She calls the mother and explains the problem, and that the mother will have to pick them up (so the girl does not take them home on the bus.)
The principal then has a stern talk with the girl about bringing in items to school that could be considered dangerous.
The principal then drafts up a list of items that are unacceptable, xeroxes off a bunch of copies, and sends them home for both students and their parents to sign, with the understanding that anyone who brings in any of these items FROM HERE ON IN will be punished.
that’s actually a good point..what if it was a boy with adhd? would you like him round YOUR son or daughter with a screwdriver and hammer? a screw driver that can be stabbed into someone’s neck while playing or when he gets upset?
this isn’t a rant at adhd...but another opinion...one that’s mission from here.
She also did the same thing when one of my friends brought a wall ball to school.
Lame joke I know, but I`m utterly bored and that`s why I`m here, so you`ll have to feel the wrath of my lame jokes.
Wow, our country is really becoming screwed up.
Whatever happened to a quiet word telling the kid why they shouldn`t bring stuff like that into schools unless they ask? Why is it always a full blown suspension?
Overreaction I tell ya!
Oh yeah, when you put it that way, it makes total sense. Way to keep us safe! [/sarcasm]
