What a creepy story. What’s going on in your children’s schools?
Home schooling more and more seems like the best option remaining.
From Truth Revolt:
A 13-year-old boy from New Jersey was suspended from school for two days last week and forced to undergo a five-hour long physical and psychological evaluation after another student accused him of making “gun motions” with a pencil.
The seventh-grader said he was simply twirling a pencil with a pen cap on the end but another student, who was bullying him earlier in the day, yelled out, “He’s making gun motions, send him to juvie.”
A New Jersey News 12 story was posted to YouTube by the child’s father recounting the ordeal. In it, a reporter called the Vernon Schools Superintendent, Charles Maranzano, who justified the school’s overreaching tactics:
We never know what’s percolating in the mind of children, okay, and when they demonstrate behaviors that raise red flags, we must do our duty.
The father said he was completely floored at how far the school went in its disciplinary actions:
I’m absolutely livid. I think it’s gross misconduct at its finest. They took something so minimal and took it so far over the edge.
The boy, who shows visible bruising from the blood tests, said school administrators never once listened to his side of the story:
I was shocked because I’m like, how am I not going to come back to school? I didn’t even do anything.
The boy was told he could return to school on Monday pending the results of the psychological evaluation, which the report says came out “clean.”
It is as if we have gone completely mad.
Actually, not “as if”. We have gone mad.
One of my philosophy profs once remarked that an insane mind produces false results. But if nearly everything that goes into the mind is twisted and artificial, then the mind must produce false results.
