Why is common sense missing from our public schools

Are zero-tolerance policies at school targeting harmless kids? has a summary of a number of incidents where public schools make federal cases out of children doing harmless things. 

I believe many of us have heard about the Maryland 7-year-old who got suspended for eating a pop-tart into the shape of a gun.  I hadn't heard of the 5-year-old who was suspended for talking about shooting a Hello Kitty bubble gun that blows soap bubbles. 

What are these people thinking?  A little child TALKED about a bubble gun.  What is wrong with these people?

It is a sign of our times that so many parents just meekly accept this as OK.

This is just another reason to homeschool - so your children can talk about guns without being thrown in jail.
