When School Policy Goes Wild!

This article made me chuckle because it is so true about teenagers.  It seems that once students hit young adolescence they become miniature lawyers questioning every rule and trying to find loopholes in the system.  This is aside the point I want to make with this blog though.  I think sometimes the policy schools come up with is absurd.  This school seems to have gone overboard with their policy about stimulants.  Sure there is potential danger with giving stimulants to students, just like foods with allergies, but sometimes school administrators can blow things way out of proportion.  Three days suspension for sharing caffeine gum is a little too much.  Detention would have been a better punishment.  Now that’s three days the student is going to be gone and out of the loop of what’s going on for sharing gum. Maybe fighting would deserve suspension, but not this.  Okay, I’m done with my rant.
