I know I do. One of the most disturbing trends over the past decade has been children, being punished, suspended, maybe even expelled from school, for being children. The list of kids, hurt by “zero tolerance” is long, and troubling. Recently a nine-year-old boy made news for being suspended from school. His “crime”? Calling his teacher cute. Yes, apparently that innocent remark is sexual harassment to the politically correct. The Lonely Conservative has the story for us, with not only a happy ending, but with punishment for the idiot principal who made the asinine decision to punish this child.
Jerry Bostic told The Gaston Gazette he could understand being written up for the suspension and having someone follow up during the school year, but he added that he was disappointed because this is how his 44 years in education ended.
“To me it’s a really sad final note to a career that I have found very satisfying and enjoy working with kids,” Bostic said. “I really don’t believe I was treated fairly.”
Awww, he was treated unfairly? Too bad. Some might think it mean to celebrate the firing of this man, but to me, people with his lack of judgement do not belong anywhere near kids, good riddance! I wish the same thing would happen to every teacher/principal who punishes kids for acting like kids.As The Lonely Conservative puts it……..
Well, now he knows how that young boy felt when he was suspended.
