Loons Running Schools

When you were a kid, did you ever point your finger like a gun and say "pow"?  I certainly did, lots of times.  Donna St. George reports in the WaPo:

The parents of a 6-year-old Silver Spring boy are fighting the first-grader's suspension from a Montgomery County public school for pointing his finger like a gun and saying "pow," an incident school officials characterized in a disciplinary letter as a threat "to shoot a student."
More and more, it seems, people with truly bizarre notions are in positions of authority, making decisions that affect lots of other people.  The weird is becoming mainstream, and the prospects for our country and our culture are not good.

The story also discusses schools' overuse of suspensions as a discipline measure, which is also a huge problem.

Apparently, this was not the child's first offense, and the administrators were apparently peeved that they had to remind the child. Apparently, those people missed that day when their Masters Degree program taught that six year olds often need to be reminded of things.

Hopefully, these people will have to deal with an obstreperous bureaucrat and will get a taste of their own medicine.

There have been news reports of ex-porn stars losing their teaching jobs because of their previous career choice. My sense is that an average ex-porn star has more sense than these dull, and ultimately, cruel people.
