Another reason to homeschool

It seems like sanity and rational behavior are missing in public schools today.

Piece of Paper Gets Girl in Trouble reports:

A South Philadelphia elementary student was searched in front of classmates and threatened with arrest after she mistakenly brought a “paper gun” to school, yet another example of the hysteria sweeping America’s school system in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook massacre.

I might be able to understand the reaction of the teacher if it had been a real gun, but a paper gun?  Maybe the teacher couldn't tell the difference?

That is just ridiculous.

It is pretty sad. I've been surprised by how many similar instances have been popping up, almost daily.
