If parents did this they would be arrested

This is pretty outrageous: School forces half-naked, sopping wet student to stand outside, frostbite results

The article starts with:

A Minnesota public high school was so committed to obeying its fire drill policy to the exact letter of the law that it forced a female student–dressed only in a swimsuit, and sopping wet–to stand outside in the freezing cold for ten minutes. As a result, she suffered frostbite.

The school responds with the classic "This is our policy and we did nothing wrong."

The mother made a great point:

"Tietz also noted that she would have been arrested for doing such a thing to her child."

This just boggles my mind.  As Glenn Reynolds says it is getting to the point that sending your children to government schools is almost child abuse.
