We have to remember where the stupidity of zero tolerance comes form. It comes from our climate of law suits over stupid things. Schools are afraid if they dont treat every child exactly like the school bully they will be sued. Schools know the difference between the kids headed for jail and the kids headed for great things, but if they dont treat them all like they are headed for jail, when the kid that really is headed for jail does something, they cant treat him as he deserves unless they have treated everyone the same. If they havent treated all of them the same, the parents of the little angel headed for jail will sue, and probably win in our current legal system. The result of all of this is a school disciplinary system that caters only to the worst common denominator of child because of the kids with the worst parents.
