I am not alone when I proclaim political correctness and the hysteria surrounding guns etc. in schools has become out of control. A young man in Indianapolis recently discovered he had left a pocketknife in his pocket after doing woodwork the previous evening. As soon as he reached school he turned in the knife to the office. His reward? He was suspended for ten days and faces a hearing to see if he should be expelled for the year!
Imagine, an honor student does the right thing, and is punished the same as if he had hidden the knife. Some reward for honesty, a great life lesson to boot.
