Are you one of those who applaud Zero Tolerance? Then you've never paid attention to the trouble it causes. ZT just means that no one has to think. "Sorry, that's the policy" A boy helps a friend move to a new apartment and accidently drops a kitchen knife in the back of his car. School security sees it. Boy is expelled for bringing a weapon to school. Huh??? Nobody is permitted to say it was just a kitchen knife and that the boy didn't even realize it was there because ZERO Tolerance doesn't allow for it. Go here and see what Randy Cassingham has to say about it. You might want to go ahead and subcribe to his (free) newsletter while you're at it.
