Sound off on decision ordinary hand tools are 'weapons'
I agree -- ANYTHING that can be used to hurt someone has no place in the classroom
School administrators will be blamed if someone misuses a "harmless" tool -- they're just being cautious
I wouldn't want students bringing hammers to school, but a teacher having one as a visual aid should be fine
I think it's dumb, but punishing the teacher without having explicitly banned tools first is criminal
With this lack of common sense, is it any wonder the schools don't work?
If a child draws a picture of a gun, he gets suspended -- does the same happen for depicting a pair of pliers?
The next school shooter is thinking, "This is going to be even easier than I thought"
Schools abandoned traditional absolute values, so now they're filling the moral vacuum with silliness
Schools are teaching kids to be compliant and afraid of everything ... except the nanny state that must "protect" them
