Open Quote These School Administrators are OFF their ROCKERS.

And should be suspended for imagining that they are Administrators.

Any imagination of something that can harm someone will not be tolerated, and these administrators have done just that.

Welcome to "the thought police" and turn about is fair-play as you will soon learn, to your demise.

All boys play "army" always have, always will. Pay attention to the cause of gun violence in this country, once you have studied the cause and effect, you will see that it is fear instilled in our children.

When I was young, if we were threatened or had to defend ourselves, it was only fists and not guns. Guns have been legal for over 200 years here.
What has changed? Fear has reduced our youth to cowards who instead of risking a punch, will kill.

Your administrators will only exasperate this issue creating more fear of a "boogie man" that has been fabricated from illogical conclusions. Indeed, the easiest conclusions and not what I would expect from educated administrators.

So, time to suspend the administrators for harming a child's self esteem and instilling cowardice which could lead to gun violence.

Thank you,
Paul Duffany

Open Quote The administration at this school should be ashamed of themselves for suspending a boy for playing imaginary games. Have you no sense? I would consider it odd if my son did not play cops and robbers, cowboys and indians, or pretend games to save the world from bad people. I hope we can save the real world from people like the administrators of this school who are so unbelievably stupid. These so called "zero tolerance" policies are mind numbing. Close Quote

Open Quote A 2nd grader has been suspended from school in Loveland for a make believe game he was playing.

The 7-year-old says he was trying to save the world. But school administrators say he broke a key rule during his pretend play.

“I was trying to save people and I just can’t believe I got dispended,” says Alex Evans, who doesn’t understand his suspension any better than he can pronounce it.

“It’s called ‘rescue the world,’” he says.

He was playing a game during recess at Loveland’s Mary Blair Elementary School and threw an imaginary grenade into a box with pretend evil forces inside.

“I pretended the box, there’s something shaking in it, and I go ‘pshhh.’”

The boy didn’t throw anything real or make any threats against anyone. He explains he was pretending to be the hero. “So nothing can get out and destroy the world.”

But his imaginary play broke the school’s real rules. The school lists “absolutes” designed to keep a safe environment. The list includes absolutely no fighting, real or imaginary; no weapons, real or imaginary. Click here to see the Mary Blair “Absolutes”

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
