Zero-tolerance school policies draw a lot of attention, especially when school officials are forced to make a decision between following the “zero-tolerance” policy and simply applying common sense.

We’ve gathered some examples of controversial zero-tolerance policy decisions and want to know what you would have done.

There is no shortage of controversial zero-tolerance policy decisions.  Take a look at the examples below and vote.

 

7-year-old suspended for biting Pop Tart into shape of a gun.

 

6-year-old suspended for making gun gesture with fingers.

 

9-year-old has “inappropriate” green Army men removed from top of birthday cupcakes.

 

13-year-old suspended from bringing butter knife to school.

 

There will never be a perfect system, but we can do better than “zero-tolerance” policies when working with kids.
