Student Suspended for Disarming Teen Who Had Gun On School Bus (Video)

March 6, 2013

If you can get suspended for averting a potential disaster on a school bus one wonders what punishment you would get for saving the entire school:

A Florida high school student was suspended after he disarmed another student who allegedly threatened to shoot someone while on a school bus.

An unnamed 16-year-old student from Cypress Lake High School in Fort Myers, Fla., was suspended for three days after he disarmed a 15-year-old peer who allegedly threatened to shoot another student with a loaded revolver during a Feb. 26 fight on a school bus, according WFTX.

“It’s dumb,” the suspended student told the station. “How they going to suspend me for doing the right thing?”

The teen, who reportedly took away the .22 caliber RG-14 revolver away from his armed peer, was allowed to return to class on Monday, WFTX notes.

Officials later revealed the student was suspended because he didn’t cooperate with the investigation.

The boy’s mother said she believes her son wouldn’t reveal the details to police because he was “born and raised” not to “snitch.”

“I’m going to stand beside my son 100% no matter what,” the unnamed mother told WBBH. “He was very heroic; I think he did the right thing.”

However, according to a release by the school district, anyone involved in a school bus altercation is subject to discipline, per the code of student conduct and Florida law, WBBH reports.

The alleged gunman was later identified as Quadryle Davis. He was arrested and charged with possession of a firearm on school property and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, WZVN reports. He was taken to the Lee County Juvenile Assessment Center.

Remember when suspensions used to mean something?  Now it is a badge of honour in commemoration of heroism and personal integrity.

Now tell me that our education system isn’t in disarray!

The Worst School Rule I Have Ever Come Across

August 18, 2012

At least 3 British schools have banned students from making best friends. That’s right – you haven’t read that incorrectly.

I have heard about some bizarre school rules, but this one definitely takes the cake.

TEACHERS are banning schoolkids from having best pals — so they don’t get upset by fall-outs.

Instead, the primary pupils are being encouraged to play in large groups.

Educational psychologist Gaynor Sbuttoni said the policy has been used at schools in Kingston, South West London, and Surrey.

She added: “I have noticed that teachers tell children they shouldn’t have a best friend and that everyone should play together.

“They are doing it because they want to save the child the pain of splitting up from their best friend. But it is natural for some children to want a best friend. If they break up, they have to feel the pain because they’re learning to deal with it.”

Oh, I’m sorry, I thought schools were supposed to prepare children for the real world. What a terrible rule this is!
