LA School District Finally Realizes Getting Police Involved For Minor Offenses Is Stupid

LA School District Finally Realizes Getting Police Involved For Minor Offenses Is Stupid

The Los Angeles Unified School District has decided that maybe people have been right all these years that arresting or giving its students citations for playground fights, swearing in class, or smoking a cigarette on school grounds isn’t the best way to handle such minor transgressions.

Suspending A Student For Saying ‘Bless You’ Is Obnoxious

Suspending A Student For Saying 'Bless You' Is Obnoxious

Quick – think of the most disruptive phrase a teenager could yell across a classroom. What did you come up with? Was it “bless you”? Because that’s the phrase that got high school student Kendra Turner suspended last week. According to her teacher, this little two-word benediction is a classroom disruption … because of course, nothing says “I don’t want distractions in my classroom” more clearly than kicking a student out of class for expressing a common polite sentiment.

Richard Dawkins Says He Would Abort A Down Syndrome Fetus, Twitter Goes Bananas

Oh, Richard Dawkins. For such a smart man, how do you still not completely understand what Twitter is and isn’t used for?
