Okay, I know that we should obey the laws of the land, but, this honors student was suspended, stripped of his student council post and barred from a honors dinner. Because he bought a bag of S.kittles from a classmate. You read right – a bag of S.kittles. And no, that’s not code for the newest illicit drug, I’m talking about the fruity rainbow candies!
This is the kind of stupidity that I am in no way prepared to deal with when Lovegirl reaches school age. These types of decisions make me think that she will definitely attend private school. I used to get incensed when Smoochy would tell me about students being suspended for defending themselves in a school fight. I’m all for peaceful campuses, but it boggles my mind that one student could walk over to another, slap ‘em around for however long they please, and if the student being attacked fights back, they are both suspended. What kind of nonsense is that?????
Back to the candy – I wouldn’t have been able to hold myself together if Lovegirl came home and told me she’d been suspended/banned/stripped because she bought a bag of candy. There’s no way. No way.
