Today's insanity...

I'm not sure if the article is real or not because everything seems to point back to a single op-ed link but I can easily see this happening.

Students banned from bringing in pencils:

Supposedly it's not district policy only a teacher spouting off but is it any wonder that the quality of education is going down when we have teachers seeing potential weapons rather than eager minds to be molded?

And people wonder why I want to leave this country or hide out in the mountains until it all collapses and blows over. *grump*

Note: <lj user="entropy_house">  was kind enough to point me towards the UPI link confirming it's a real article - http://www.upi.com/Odd_News/2010/11/18/School-Pencil-banning-memo-not-official/UPI-17681290120134/

(Fail on LJ's code because for some reason it won't parse the user= setting.)

I googled UPI as that was given as the source, and it actually was a UPI article. There have always been a few real odd-ball teachers. I've had some doozies, and one of my brothers had a teacher everyone thought was totally psycho.
