Chris James Posted February 2, 2015 Report Share Posted February 2, 2015 If this wasn't such a stupid way to react to children's fantasy I would be laughing much harder. http://www.polygon.com/2015/2/1/7960307/fourth-grader-suspended-lord-of-the-rings I call on all you dwarves to forge a real ring of power so that we may banish the fools that run this school system. Hardly a laughing matter when a child gets disciplined like this. Do you suppose they have a copy of the Tolkien books in their library? No wait...what was I thinking...this is Texas, the last place one might find decent education. In this day and age where the Harry Potter books produced a renaissance in childhood reading I would think educators would be more realistic. Now if the 4th grader had threatened his friend with a magic wand I could see a weapons charge in the offering. Grow up, people...these adults just don't respect the minds of the children they are hired to teach. Quote Link to comment
