If Current School Rules Were Applicable In My Day, Forget The Handcuffs. My Principal Would Have Executed Me. Maybe Twice.

I proffer these recent incidents:

Suspension for teen who accidentally took pocketknife on bus

Controversy Over Suspension Of 2 Easton High Lacrosse Players

Shelton High senior has a date, but can't go to the prom

Read them all and appreciate what remarkable martinets school administrators have become in recent years.

[A "martinet" is defined as 1. A rigid military disciplinarian. 2. One who demands absolute adherence to forms and rules.]
