Nanny state derangement continues unabated. A Michigan elentary school confiscates cupcakes with toy soldiers on top on the specious and unconstitutional grounds that some parents don’t like guns so therefore all children at the school should not suffer the traumatic indignity of seeing a toy soldier.
Given that the school is obsessed with such micro-managing bullshit, I’m going way out on a limb and saying the education it provides is substandard, given that those managing it are unquestionably cretins.
Not only is this act outrageous it is also unlawful.
The Supreme Court in that 1969 decision stated that school officials cannot censor student expression unless they can reasonably forecast that the expression will cause a substantial disruption of student activities or invade the rights of others. And yes, this applies to third graders.
You have no right not to be offended, ergo whether someone else doesn’t like toy soldiers is immaterial.
I recommend that all readers stimulate the economy by going to Amazon and sending Susan Wright, the Principal, one package of gen-u-ine Made-In-The-USA package of toy plastic soldiers
