Schools going too far

This is just insane, I'm sick of them taking political correctness too far. I did things far worse then this and never was suspended for it. You have to walk on egg shells these days and I don't think it is helping the kids by taking it this far. Do these people even remember what it was like to be a kid?

Thats kind of crazy.. We used to bring all sorts of stuff like that to school. Cutouts out of the panty section of macys blah blah blah. I understand they needed to act on it but suspension is kind of much.

They used to take our papers away and maybe call our parents. Damn how times have changed

Re: Schools going too far



Ironically, the same kid would probably be rewarded for bringing in a Time or US News and World Report magazine showing thousands of dead people killed at the hands of the latest 3rd world phucktard dictator. Good job Johnny...way to keep up on current events

But heaven forbid Johnny looks a pictures of the opposite sex....no, Johnny go watch some queer guys tell another "man" how to dress what a crock....

Moral of the story:
death and destruction = good
opposite sex = bad

And when I'm rich
And meet Bob Hope
We'll shoot some golf
And shoot some dope

Yeah. I used to sell my dads old Playboys to kids at school for 10 dollars a piece! I just never got caught though.

Re: Schools going too far

Suggested he goto another school for a while? Gimme a ****ing break.


I agree on the violence thing. People think we can show all these dead guys but a girl in a swimsuit, that's just not acceptable.

Re: Schools going too far

This is a bit of a different subject (no pun intended) but quite along the same lines. it never fails to piss me off what goes on in today's schools. This is just another example.

Re: Schools going too far

That's a joke.

A quick word with the lad would have sufficed. "Son, leave that at home." "Ok teach."

His mother has every right to be pissed... he on the other hand should surf porn on his time off.

Re: Schools going too far

What about a girl in my neighborhood (and it is happening all over, too) that was sent home immediately and expelled for the remainder of the school year due to the school district's zero tolerance policy on drugs..............when she took a Midol to school while on the rag. She was at a drinking fountain getting ready to take it when a teacher spotted her and stopped her from committing her heinous crime.
The public school system is a joke. It should be privatized and the NEA should be disbanded.

Re: Schools going too far

First of all, where is this Freedom of Speech/expression thing they teach us about? Does this not fit in there? Next, I hypothize (sic) that the teacher that caught him was a fat trog, or the principal who's husband or significant other enjoys these magazines and she is jealous and took her insecure rage out on this poor child. Why, cause she may be a fat trog. Or maybe cause of poor diets and exercise habits of today's youth there were "weight challenged", "children of "size"", or whatever else the politically correct or "sensitive" word is of the day. Whatever happened to FAT, RETARDED, UGLY, and those other words we used to use... Oh no, let us worry about.... Argh!!!!!! Give the kid back his spank mat'l and issue an apology to him and his family.

People need to get a grip here. We are too worried about offending other people and ruin a good time or expression of ourselves. Ya don't like what you seeing or hearing, MOVE or don't listen. I gotta be hampered cause YOU don't like something.

GET OVER IT AND GET OVER YOURSELF!!!!!!

People in mass are going to snap one day....

Back in my box, back, back in the box...

Used to really hate this crap when I was in the service. Used to get it all the time from the officer corp, "Chief, you are not being very sensitive". Kiss my ass sir, sensitive gets ya killed. Fly the damn plane and leave the people to me. ARGHHHGHHGHGHGHHGHG! Thanks for the spool...thanks alot...

Dayum, I like you. I'm gonna buy you a beer sometime.

Just today (in 30 minutes actually) I have to go for sensitivity training. I told our HR manager that this violates my constitutional rights. She asked how and I said that I like me just the way I am and don't want to be changed. LMAO, she said "That's why you're going".

Ariund here. those decisions generally are made by the local - yokel school boards rather than the state or the teacher's union. ( Something about the education business just draws geniuses like fish to a baketech post...)

How does privatization fix that?
