While I'm not one of those "no snitch" people (the teachers are supposed to be In Charge, so why is it bad to tell them, oh, Bobby has a weapon?), but seriously - the kid has a knife, he's threatening someone... if the teacher isn't there now, they're not going to be there in time.
School board needs to have a sit down and decide exactly what lessons they're trying to teach. (And I hope there was a massive uproar that a kid who not only brought a knife to school, but actually threatened someone with it(!) was only suspended, and not, y'know, arrested?)
I'm sure the timing couldn't be better if they'd planned it.
Just gotta ask - so, we're not only saying they weren't maliciously gagging children (I guess it was part of a fun new educational game?), but we're going to assert that it's now A-OK to do so, because it doesn't harm them?
Put another way: my daughter's soccer league isn't keeping score this year. The kids know if they won or lost, but the lack of league scoring means that they also learn it doesn't matter. And at this age, it really shouldn't.
