Pop-Tart Gun Sculpture Earns Suspension

Pop-Tart Gun Sculpture Earns Suspension

I keep thinking there's no way the educational bureaucracy can be any more laughable, but they keep finding a way.

A Baltimore second-grader has been suspended for two days for — wait for it — nibbling a breakfast pastry into the shape of a gun. Not only did young Josh Welch get two days locked out of school, the administration sent home a letter to parents that contained this unforgettable passage: "A student used food to make an inappropriate gesture."

Two days for an "inappropriate gesture?"

The boy's father summed it up nicely: "I would almost call it insanity. I mean with all the potential issues that could be dealt with at school, real threats, bullies, whatever the real issue is, it's a pastry.., Ya know?"


Administrators, who were once a minority in the educational ranks, have become a huge, parasitic mass, doing nothing to raise student achievement while reducing teachers to judgment-forbidden drones who mindlessly enforce ridiculous zero-tolerance policies like this one. Reducing their number and influence is essential to protecting both our First and Second Amendment rights.
