World Gone Mad

"Six-year-old Zachary Christie was so excited to become a Cub Scout that he brought his camping utensil to school. The tool serves as a spoon, a fork and a knife, and Zachary wanted to use it at lunch.
What Zachary didn't know was that the gizmo violated his school's zero-tolerance policy on weapons. And now the Christina School District in Newark, Del., has suspended the first grader and ordered him to attend the district's reform school for 45 days."

You can read the rest of the story HERE.  Just another example of administrators run amok.  How do you violate a weapons policy without a weapon?  A pencil would do more damage!

Update:  Looks like they're backing down on the suspension.  National media attention tends to have that effect!
