    Zero Tolerance is really Zero Thinking. The left just loves to set up utopian so people don't have to think just be controlled by the progressives. Is that really forward thinking? Really

    As a psychology major I had to take some classes like Child Development, which were populated largely by education majors. In all my dealings with education majors in classes like that, I found them to be uniformly some of the dumbest people I've ever encountered. They couldn't draw a logical conclusion if their lives depended on it. They were always the ones wanting to know, "Is this going to be on the test?" The phrase "dumber than a sack of hammers" just about nails it.

    New information is added as it is discovered. We may need to push for legislation in Washington to protect our children from the irrational and abusive behaviors of some teachers and school administrators with their total lack of common sense in the application of "Zero Tolerance" policies. This is not propaganda, these incidents are actually happening in Washington and around the country as clearly illustrated in the examples listed to date.

    That "zero tolerance" way of thinking has always been out of control.

    What's with all these old threads getting revived Do we have a commune of hippies from the 60's wanting to feel loved again?

    Friends... don't let friends... become teachers. :D

    Of course there ARE exceptions to the rule, but there's a HUGE difference between memorizing rote from a text book, and being skilled in the "practical application".

    It's kinda like D&D "martial artists"... see "Big Bang Theory" for an entertaining explanatory example . ;)

    I can count on one hand and name, the number of skilled teachers I had through out my life Both school and Military! The rest were robots who had ONE and ONLY ONE way to teach!!! If it was in the book, it was not open to question! IF it wasn't in the book, it was simply not true!

    Why do parents think kids have to go to school? The most important decision you can make in their lives, and it's typically done on auto-pilot.
