Sixth Grader Kicked Out Of School For Knife In Her Purse

Here we go again. Got another case of a school grossly overreacting and guess what- it didn’t happen in Massachusetts or California. No, it happened a little closer to home for me- yeap, right here in Sweet Home Alabama.

The incident when down like this- a sixth grade girl was suspended for 103 days because she brought a knife to school in her purse.

The story, as reported on WKRP TV, has the typical tit for tat with the school officials defending the severity of their decision- based it on the character of the child, previous discipline- even going back to the young lady’s kindergarten records, and statements obtained by her teacher and other children.

Play-doh set with knife

Good grief- they are using her behavior as a 5-year-old to defend suspending her as a 12-year-old.

What did she do back then- cut up another little girl’s play-doh doll with the little plastic knife that comes with the set?
