People still keep on surprising me every day with their stupidty.  School systems have been getting dumb and dumb each year almost.

Doesn't the story say that another student gave the candy to this little girl? Did this other child get a suspension too?  Just stupid.

The MOST worrisome thing about this, and I quoth the article:

"Ellis said failing to adhere to the state’s guidelines could put federal funding in jeopardy."

What on earth does adhering to a STATE policy have to do with FEDERAL funding?

The local school systems need to get the feds out of it.  Period.

I enjoy, for moment anyway, complete autonomy in how I educate my children.  I don't answer to anyone.  That is the freedom you get when you don't take money from those who want to control what and how you teach.

When I first heard about this story I assumed the kid had bounced a Jolly Rancher off another tot's noggin.

When I was in school Jolly Ranchers and Now 'n Laters were considered legal tender.

Hell, our teachers would give out Jolly Ranchers for 100% assignments and such.  They always had big buckets of those and Red Vines.

Whoa, they don't have Jolly Ranchers in South Africa?  Man, that really IS a grim place!

HA!  Don't listen to this fool, bra.  What you want is my pure, fresh cut Raspberry Pixy Stix.  We're not talking that little girl sissy s**t they sell you at Western Family market down the road.  None of that off-brand s**t.  Genuine Pixy Stix.  The real deal, fresh from the factory, the stuff that feels like magic running through your blood.  You buy some today, bra, and I throw in one of those hard root beer barrels.  Whacha say, bra?

And the school indirectly teaches children not to share. Way to go.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
