We have yet another mindless enforcement of a zero tolerance rule. A 5-year-old Pennsylvania girl was suspended from kindergarten after she who told another girl that she was going to shoot her with a pink Hello Kitty toy gun that blows soapy bubbles. Originally, the charge was “terroristic threats” against the student. The Mount Carmel Area Elementary School in Northumberland County, Pennsylvania reduced the charge but still suspends the kindergartener to end her reign of soapy terror.
The teacher actually confronted the girl in class and told her that police would be called. She was then “interrogated” by these adults while crying in fear.
Once again, there is no talk of disciplining the teacher or officials for this traumatic and moronic treatment of a young child.
