Another "gun" in virtual class


Recommended Posts

 I couldn't find the thread about a teacher spotting a BB gun in the background of her virtual class but here's another one.

A 12-year-old boy in Colorado got a five-day suspension for flashing a toy gun across his computer screen during an online art class, according to a report.

“Zero Tolerance” has never, and will never work. It is used by those too stupid or too lazy to do their jobs and make their own decisions.

The long arm of the law has found a good excuse to get a little longer. 

Though in this case I'm a little curious in that I get the impression the parents weren't home when this happened.

Another excuse for these tyrants to invade the privacy of the home. I’m glad I don’t have school age children. If I had to do the online classes I would have to build a blank room around the computer so that would be all they could see. I’m sick and tired of these pricks and whatever may or may not be in my home is none of their business. I’d bet if, instead of a toy gun, the teacher spotted a still, a bag of weed, and a couple of passed out hookers there would have been nothing said.

With virtual learning, parents not being home is happening a lot, where both parents have to work to make ends meet.

I get that, but a 12yr old ADHD kid on his own to  connect to school?  A toy gun on the screen is probably the least of their worries.  😄I have a 12 yr old and I'm impressed that this kid is doing this on his own routinely.
