On the "Student Suspended for Saving Classmate's Life," jesusfreakgal posts:


 Maybe there isn't a problem (regarding the zero tolerence policy). But I think that when a policy such as this says pretty much that there are no exceptions to it, not now, not ever, that is a problem. People are bound to make mistakes. People may find themselves in a situation where there choices are few (such as in this situation here), where technically following the rules has a great chance of ending up with the worse results (as here, where the bullied student has a great possibility of dying), and then the policy and/ or school ignores all else (including others who technically did worse) and someone gets into trouble. I wonder what, if anything happened to the student who brought the knife to school with the intension of harming (and probably as it sounds/ seems, killing someone) someone. If he got in no trouble whatsoever, the school is just asking for trouble, as I fear he may try again!

A new thread on Family and Parenting - Everything will be ok. I love you.’ Parenting after Trayvon


 


This article, ostensibly only for black parents, contains truisms for ALL regardless of race or creed.




Zimmerman BTW was Hispanic NOT Caucasian.  I wonder what Hispanic mothers are telling THEIR kids in the face of such over overwhelming antipathy against a Hispanic-American who defended himself?


Dealing with hatred, fear, and tragedy is not limited to just one race but rather to the whole human condition... 



This is NOT another "Is Zimmerman guilty" or "What REALLY happened between Zimmerman and Martin" thread.


Please feel free to weigh in on what YOU'D tell your kids.
