I have never heard of anything more ridiculous in my life! I watched the video, and in no way does it resemble a gun. Even if it did, it's his name, not a weapon. I'm wondering if they will now change the policy to include "you can not make a "gun" with your hands. The school officials are making themselves look like idiots.
School boards can be among the most obtuse and riduculous forms of "government" out there. On par with homeowners' associations for blatant abuse of power by small-minded, misguided, sick and twisted keepers of an imaginary flame.
What comes to my mind is the head of the school board's name must be Dick. I wonder how he is able to "sign" that -- and not be arrested for indecent exposure!
Last week we had a principal denying a diploma to the class valedictorian. What can they possibly think of next???
My hometown high school a few years back wanted to get rid of all the technology classes. They said that students could still take the home-ec classes, because 'they would still have computers in those rooms'.
Half the students showed up to the next meeting in protest... sorry, but 'I took a sewing class in high school' doesn't look too good on a resume for a software engineer.
