There are about 100,000 public schools and nearly 30,000 private schools in the US. In a group that large, there's bound to be several insane morons.

The idea that one or even one hundred examples of this points to a concerning trend that "we should have seen this one coming" is irrational. How does this headline work for your purposes?

129,999 out of 130,000 School Administrations Support Students Wearing Star Wars Shirts Featuring Cool Future Weapons!

That's a school decision isn't it?

Or do you want big government to start dictating whether this is the right/wrong decision?



Can you feel it?


Not really.

I fail to see which part of the OP called for the government to come in a override anything.

I think the OP was calling the school's zero tolerance policy moronic, but maybe that's just me.

Could you please quote the part of the OP that calls for big government action?

It's the same kind of thing policy that got a kid suspended for chewing his pop tart in the shape of what the teacher thought looked like a gun.

It's called zero tolerance, and it leads to most of these insanity stories you hear: kindergartners getting suspended for sexual harassment because they gave someone a peck on the cheek or a hug, kids getting suspended because they made a gun shape with their thumb and index finger, stuff like that.

We better ban pictures of brick houses and factories because bricks can be used as weapons. Better include stone walls as well because people get stoned to death in Arab countries. Might as well include cars and trucks as well since people have been killed from being in an accident.

I just love liberal logic.

I remember a small town in TX banning spongebob from their schools because IT WAS GANG RELATED.

Still dunno how.



I figured spongebob had more homoerotic overtones than gang related violence?

They did the same thing when I was in high school because I wore a vandals shirt that had an AK on it.

BS then and BS now.

Who wouldn't ban tshirt of a fictional person who is a terrorist/insurgent, uses guns/weapons, is in a religious cult, believes they are above the law.

At first I was against the administration's decision but now you've convinced me of its validity!

Not really.

Public Schools are government. This is a government intrusion the OP says should not happen. OP calls for LESS intrusion. You twist his post into asking for more.

We got within a few hundred votes of replacing the school board superintendent with a senior in the high school the year I graduated, running on the 'rock and roll' ticket, whose total ad campaign were some bumper stickers we got printed up.

No one much votes for the board members or superintendent. Generally just teachers. If you look at the voter turnout for these bozos, it's incredibly light.

If a quarter of the parents just voted on this, they could take control of the school board next election. Problem solved.

And the best solution. Schools should be a tool of the people, not the government.
