I'm not a big fan of zero-tolerance policies specifically because of cases like this.  Inevitably zero-tolerance winds up punishing the harmless right along with the harmful, and it seems like they often do so in ridiculous ways.


   I could not come up with a link for the update, (so i picked Your post to reply to)....   On the morning CBS news they said that the school board had made some modifications to the policy, and the boy would be heading back to class.


    I do understand the school wanting to keep dangerous items out of the school.  That does make sense to me.    However... in my mind... Zero Tolerence is an "easy" way out.  They do not have to sit down on a case by case basis and find out if there is a definate problem, or a lack of comperhension on the part of the child, and work through it.   

  Just my opinion.  Others mileage may vary.  Mea.
