Uhhh.  I was going to rant about how ludicrous this is, but I just don’t have the energy.

A hug brings discredit to the school?

WTF?

Someone contact zefrank, quickly! Ze, FIX THIS!

 

It states: Displays of affection should not occur on the school campus at any time. It is in poor taste, reflects poor judgment, and brings discredit to the school and to the persons involved.

  1. Is this heavily debunked and obviously flawed notion of “zero-tolerance” still being practiced in sone boondocks? Jeepers! That not only frightning.. it’s extremely dangerous!

    The “phraser” of this Orwellian gem should be forced to go on ALL the talk shows and EXPLAIN the rationale behind this insanity!

  2. @Kate – you plan on introducing COMMON SENSE into the education system? Good luck with that 🙂

  3. Ok this one is about as good as the child that got in big huge trouble over a butter knife. As an educator, I do understand why certain policies are in place but hello people use that lump 3 ft above your arse. Honestly, what she did does not fall into Public Displys of Affection, PDA. Here’s another fine example of a knee-jerk reaction to what. Give me a break and learn to use your brains. Yes, Rob I am still going to be a teacher but I’m also going to use my brain and not let policy replace my common sense. That’s just wrong for many reason!
