Stupid decisions, part 1

This story includes just about everything that is wrong with today's public education environment. Students having a conversation about Innocent things that goes wrong and because there are no adults left in the public school system, two student pay the price.

"Travis was accused of using a racial slur for saying the word 'noose.' Then he was suspended for 10 days," Kim said.

So now the word "noose" is a racial slur.

"Someone asked if anybody knew how to tie a noose and Travis did admit he knew how to tie a noose,"

Well we can't have any of that can we! Nooses have been in the news as of late, used in both real and faux racial incidents and so it too gets added to the list of things that can not be discussed, regardless of circumstances. Instead of either ignoring this or using it as an opportunity to discuss the issue, two students are punished for a "perceived" slight. When is enough going to be enough? This is the sort of garbage that would be improved by both school vouchers and more home schooling. Anything to keep these politicrats away from the kids.
