Instapundit says sending children to public school may be child abuse

Here is another one of those zero tolerance at public schools seems to mean zero common sense. 

Suspension over gun-shaped toaster pastry is now permanent mark on kid’s record starts with:

This week brought more bad news for Joshua Welch, the Baltimore-area second-grader who was suspended for two days because his teacher thought he shaped a breakfast pastry into something resembling a gun.

School officials have denied an appeal to have the suspension expunged from the boy’s permanent record, reports The Baltimore Sun.

This is one of those truth is stranger than fiction incidents.  If someone wrote a similar situation in a story people would say it was unreal.  People want fiction to make sense.  This is unreal, but it is true.

Hopefully more people will start to see that sending children to some public schools is a form of child abuse.
