She got a notice of a 10-day suspension and threat of expulsion after telling the administration last Friday what happened — and it’s apparently due to the school’s zero-tolerance policy regarding weapons on campus, WAVY-TV in Hampton Roads, Va. reported.
“I took the razor blade, and then I threw it away immediately…I didn’t carry it around the school…I didn’t use it against anyone…I threw it away,” she told WAVY.
Rachael Harris, Adrionna’s mother, told WAVY she was “shocked and surprised…that a student would get suspended for saving another child.”
“The school system overreached absolutely.”
I consider this too insane for words. Yet it does not surprise me in light of the well established track record the schools have for enforcing so-called “zero tolerance” to the point of ABSOLUTE INSANITY.
What I would like to know is why parents and taxpayers put up with this crap. Perhaps they figure there is nothing they can do. Voting changes nothing, as these things are systematized.
It’s because the primary and secondary eduction arena has become almost exclusively the province of women – and women approve of “safety” for their children over all else.
This policy was created, I would bet, and bet even more that it is implemented almost entirely by women. Note that it was Adrionna’s mother who called this travesty “overreach.” She supports the notion of zero tolerance in principle, and only (mildly) deviates from that support when it appears to personally threaten her own child.
Until we bring men back into the education of our children, we will continue to have a system at the mercy of hysterical, frightened woman willing to sacrifice any liberty on the altar of security for their kids.
