Not a Smart Decision

I'm getting fed up with so-called educators who don't seem to have the intelligence or common sense to tell a block of wood from a firearm. The latest example of education idiocy is the case of Marie Morrow, a high school senior in Aurora, Colorado. Marie is a good student who is supposed to attend the Merchant Marine Academy after she graduates high school this spring. But all of that may be in jeopardy after her high school suspended her for having gun-shaped blocks of wood, plastic and duct tape in her SUV.

Keep in mind, these aren't guns we're talking about. These are items that Marie and other members of the Young Marines use when they drill. You couldn't shoot a spitwad from one of these, and yet the school district has suspended Marie for ten days for violating the school's policy on weapons. In fact, the school could expel Marie for her "crime," putting her future in doubt.

The school district says Marie doesn't deserve to be in school today, but it's pretty clear to me that this country could use a lot more Marie Morrows in schools around the country.
