   OK, i am of two different thoughts on this one.

    One part says the school is absolutely correct.

  The other side says...wait a minute...this is a *** 6 ***  year old Child.   6 year old minds do not grasp completely the right/ wrong seriousness of actions and the consequences.   ( heck, some adults don't grasp it either)

 I do believe that the mandatory 45 day suspension from school, and having to go to a "special school for troubled children"  is Way off.    If he doesn't have issues now...he will most likely have them after that.  Plus, he has learned how to make grown-ups get Really agitated  That definately is a useful life skill !  *sarcasm*

  I know that there are educators on this group, and while i do understand a Zero Tolerance rule... it also seems as tho... each case should have its own review and possible outcome.

    I certainly would like to hear others views on this.  Mea.

I think this is more of the paranoid bullshit that spoils things in this country.  This is the child equivalent of mandatory sentencing and the three strikes rule.  At most, the teacher should have put it in her desk until the end of the day and sent it home with a note.  Honestly, I think it is kind of dumb that anything happened at all.  Don't kids that bring their lunch bring silverware? Does the lunchroom staff make them eat with their hands?  Bullshit!
