Public School Idiocy

This time in Massachusetts, though, in fairness to Massachusetts, we should look to them first when it comes to social policy idiocy.

When given an assignment to draw a picture that reminded him of Christmas, an eight year old student drew a stick figure of Jesus hanging on the cross. The figure had the eyes of Jesus crossed out.

What to make of it? Well, the school did its best to get to the bottom of the whole scandal and after careful consideration suspended the child from school and forced him to take a psychological evaluation (at the parent's expense) before he was allowed back into the classroom. They feared that the eight year old's drawing might be indicative of a child too violent to be taught alongside other children.

As a result of this incident, no teachers or administrators have yet been suspended for being too stupid to be entrusted with the responsibility of educating eight year old children. We should be thankful no one was tasered.

Not a brain cell's capacity amongst the whole school's administration.

It never ceases to amaze me how obtuse today's educators have become.
