Bubble blowing has advanced in recent years, and while to you a pink Hello Kitty Bubble Gun might seem like a fun and harmless toy, to the administration at Mount Carmel Area Elementary School in Pennsylvania, it’s a weapon. So when one little girl who owned the toy pointed it at another student and said she was “going to kill her,” their logical solution was to suspend her from school for 10 days for “making a terrorist threat.”
Thankfully someone realized that the kindergartener was probably not trying to make a terrorist threat, and shortened her suspension to two days. She does, however, have to complete a psychiatric evaluation before returning to class. All of this leaves me with one question: What ever happened to time out?
Apparently, crazy administration is a theme this week as this story comes on the heels of news that a Montreal student was expelled for “unprofessional conduct” after finding a bug in his college’s computer system. Shouldn’t they have said thank you?
