Zachary Christie

A little kid got suspended near where I live (Delaware). He got suspended for using a fork/spoon/knife during lunch. The zero tolerance policy is utterly ridiculous.


Here is the article:
New York Times - Zackary


Please check this out & sign the petition
Help Zackary (website)


*Note* There is not a lot of bandwidth on this website. It might take a while to load & you might have to retry several times. It doesn't seem to be working right now for some reason. ugh.

I signed the petition, because in 2nd grade my best friend Evan got suspended for using scissors that were not completely round at the edges. That was also ridiculous.

Thanks for the help

Zero Tolerance == Zero Common Sense. It was created to make managements job easy by eliminating choices and providing a scape goat (filthy goats)

Must obey the sheep dog

Re: Zachary Christie

aww the poor little kid !! 6 yrs of age, I was thinking before I read that if that was me I'd want to take it to school to have lunch (I still would now, but they'd lock me up).
Thing is I do appreciate the problems all around the world, but for gods sake thats stupid!!

Do, or do not, there is no try !
The mind is a funny thing

Re: Zachary Christie

Happened to a little girl in my old elementary school a couple years ago. She grabbed her dad's lunch box and took it to school and ended up having a steak knife in the lunch box...instant suspension.
I understand the need for safety in school, but what they are doing now is just ridiculous at times

If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is not for you...
