Over-reactive schools: Kid suspended for doodle of gun

Kid draws a picture of a gun on a homework assignment. A lecture maybe? Nope. A five-day suspension.

Parents complain and the suspension is reduced to three days. I’m glad the school officials decided to be reasonable. I mean, it’s not like there were reports of paper cuts.

The school hasn’t released a copy of the drawing, but here’s a story with an image of what the family says is a similarly dangerous doodle. I’m not sure the kid’s got a future as an artist.
