Special Needs Student Suspended for Cartoon Bomb Drawing

Special Needs Student Suspended for Cartoon Bomb Drawing

A special-needs student in South Carolina has been suspended indefinitely for bringing a drawing of a bomb to school.


We're not talking about a drawing that illustrates how to make a bomb or even a diagram of a real-world bomb like a JADAM or W88. We're talking a cartoon bomb of the type Wile E. Coyote might have catapulted at the Roadrunner.


Check out the video from WSHM-TV in Springfield, Mass.

The boy's mother said school officials readily admitted her son had no evil intent. But, she added, administrators said "they could not go without making an example of him and take some type of action because they were worried about their perception. Perception is actually the word he used. Perception is reality, and parents might think you have a bomb or [might be] violent."

So now we have to make examples of developmentally challenged children? Every time I think there's no point in reporting another story like this, the educrats pull another one more Kafkaesque than the last. It's pretty obvious that school boards around the nation need to grab the education professionals by the nose and point out that common sense is part of the job description, too.
