Clark County Schools Punish the Innocent

A young student in Jeffersonville, Indiana, says no to drugs, and gets a five-day suspension for doing it.  According to WAVE-3, a classmate of 13 year old Rachael Greer handed her a pill in a locker room during gym class.  As she'd been taught by her school's DARE (Drug Abuse Resistance Education), she gave the pill back.
"She was talking to another girl and me about them and she put one in my hand and I was like, ‘I don't want this,' so I put it back in the bag and I went to gym class," said Rachael.
According the Martin Bell, the mindless shill of the brainless school board, even if she'd take the pill directly to a teacher, she'd have still been suspended.
"The fact of the matter is, there were drugs on school campus and it was handled, so there was a violation of our policy," said Martin Bell, COO of Greater Clark County Schools. 
Someone should probably make Bell take the DARE program, so at the very
least he'd know that he's supposed to reward kids who turn down drugs,
not turn them into criminals.

Drugs are not the biggest problem facing Clark County, Indiana: it's the idiots running the school system.  From the assistant principal who handed down the injust sentence to the drooling mouth-breather who upheld it, it's easy to see that Clark County schools are being run by complete morons.  Firing these chuckle heads is would be a good start to improving education in America.

If the penalties for obeying the law are the same for breaking it, why spend the energy adhering to it?

I hope the decent people of Jeffersonville run this idiot out of town before he does any more damage to their children.

  1. Bell is clearly an idiot, clearly unethical, and clearly a liar. Every school district has the discretion and the duty to do the right thing for its students.
