    I didn’t study for my math test. I know, I’ll point my pencil and say bang.
    They will send me home and I won’t have to take the test.
    I could see if they were pretending pencils were swords and poked each other. Not a suspension offense though.

    When are we as parents going to begin firing these idiot teachers and school officials? Schools have gone from place of learning to mind-control, behavior modification re-education camps, complete with high fences, electronic lock doors, bars on the widows and a staff of left wing brain-washers. As you walk thru one of these re-education camps you notice all the “Save the Planet”, “Stop manmade global warming”, “Hug a Tree” Agenda 21 propaganda plastered all over every wall in every hall.
    You parents better get involved
