And for that matter, what the Hell is going on in the nation’s school districts? Political correctness is running amok through the corridors of our learning institutions, and it is doing so without a hall pass. What’s more, the teachers and administrators have become hanging judges in the face of even the slightest disciplinary infractions. Arresting a 12-year old girl for scribbling on a desk – using an erasable marker – is a little extreme, in my opinion.
Not that the schools would listen. Instead of trying to give its students an education, many public school systems would rather waste everyone’s time and money:
Alexa Gonzalez was scribbling a few words on her desk Monday while waiting for her Spanish teacher to pass out homework at Junior High School 190 in Forest Hills, she said.
“I love my friends Abby and Faith,” the girl wrote, adding the phrases “Lex was here. 2/1/10″ and a smiley face.
She was led out of school in cuffs and walked to the precinct across the street, where she was detained for several hours, she and her mother said.
Dude. Sadly, this is a huge problem in Philly as well. The Philadelphia School District sends so many b.s. arrests to our division – possession of scissors in a classroom: seriously – that we barely have enough time to process real jobs, like robbery and aggravated assault. And the commissioner wonders why clearances are down.
These administrators really need to get a grip.
