I think there should be a 5% measure of tolerance.

I got expelled in middle school. I was not dangerous at all, only disruptive.

That's a good point about zero-tolerance policies, Isaberg.

Mind, I don't think that guns have any place at all in a school, and I'm not saying that there isn't room for very specific no-tolerance rules about guns. It's not like a kid could "forget" they have a gun in their backpack. But many districts take it too far, trying to control the bodies and minds of their students.

And the strip-search thing? What _can_ they be thinking? Can you imagine a corporation having the same right for their employees? or anyplace at all?
