@ openminded First, I would like to say welcome to ATS Second, I agree with you I think blaming teachers is blame that is misplaced in alot of
cases. There are teachers that enforce policy with zeal and others that are just caught in the way of bad policy. So I agree with your
@ Piper I agree with you, the policy is complete utter BS, and has gotten worse by leaps and bounds since it was introduced. Common sense has taken
leave and left us with this flawed thing that leaves no room for any interpretation whatsoever.
@ Hiwatt I have no love for the way the government has conducted itself these past number of years, but government and school administration are not
synonymous. Zero tolerance, was something that was instituted with good intentions I think in the beginning, but has evolved into something with a
life of it's own and is a complete perversion of what it was initially supposed to be. It isn't surprising really as it was a flawed idea to begin
with, regardless it's time people stood up to it and called it what it is, a policy that promotes fear and injustice. It is wrong, and needs to go
the way of the DoDo......
