QUESTION OF THE WEEK-What do you think of zero tolerance policies in schools?

Frank Richards:"I think they can be overly harsh. A lot depends on the age of the student and the nature of the offense, but I think people are way too willing to be punitive. The notion of zero tolerance, being that absolute about anything, is, to me, a little bit distressing. Schools are becoming mini prisons. I'm not a fan of that."


Stacey Smith: "I think that it's a little too strong for the younger age group, for the little ones that are five years old. They don't understand, so if they were to make a comment like, 'I'll kill you,' some of them don't truly mean it. They'll be back to being friends the next day with the kid. That age group, I think it's a little too forceful for them, but for the older ones, we do need that."


Allegra Studnitz: "It's too complicated to put it only into two words."

Zero tolerance in schools = Police state....
Let's turn it around, zero tolerance if our children don't get the education they deserve....find the staff that can give this to them. Let the police state rein from both directions. In other words, give em a taste of their own medicine.

Ending water fluoridation would do wonders for kids ability to learn, and taking children out of public schools would do wonders for kids ability to think.

Arpal,

Since this just happened in February...wonder if it worked? I think its too soon to tell....

Dirty commies snuck fluoride into every durn well in Fluvanna.

Get a Berkey water filter with the additional PF-2 elements that take out fluoride and aresenic, or if you have enough money, get an Ecoloblue dehumifidier that runs the water through seven different filters! But don't drink the rain water, it's got nanochips in it.

John, can we hang out sometime?

Nanochips in rain water?

I hope and pray you don't believe this.

Wrong again. You hope and pray I'm not 100%right. Pray harder, it's not working yet.

What is needed is zero tolerance regarding those teachers and school administrators as well as parents who could care less about the education of these children.

The policy takes the heat off them and lays it on the kids who are not being taught or disciplined properly.

Hey, what happened to my comments detailing how Jesus said He beheld Satan as Baraq O Bama in Luke 10:18?

I smell the hand of Satan at work here. only Satan would mess with those posts. And on Easter day even.

I don't think it was Satan who deleted my comments, I think it was Hawes Spencer or one of his minions.

Is there any difference really? Xanax is derived from the name of the Akkadian god of the underworld who was also their god of fire. In Christian mythology, he was transformed into what we call Satan. Coincidence? Not if you consider the name Hosattun also known as Hawsatan. I don't know how to add the correct accent marks int his forum. Much to chew on though.

Hawes "Satan" Spencer deleted my comments!

You seem a little "anxious" about that. Have you tried asking Alprazolam for help?

Listen to the Alex Jones Show for free, 24/7, at www.i-n-fowars.com without the hyphens. I think you will find it to be not only entertaining, but also informative.

You're sure right about Alex Jones. One of the funniest entertainers around!
