Zero Tolerance in Schools...Next step to Juvenile Detention.
The idea behind zero tolerance is to remove disruptive students from school’s to make the classrooms, hallways, cafeteria, and school grounds a safer environment.
Since 1989 school districts from California, New York, kentucky, and all other states adopted the zero policy as a tool to mandate expulsion and suspension of guns, drugs, fighting, and gang related activity.
School officials believe that Zero tolerance is an effective tool to discipline students behavior and create safer schools grounds.
But critics say, School officials are abusing the zero tolerance policy to suspend, expel, and remove student's
regardless if there behavior is harmless or harmful.
So, are the schools preparing students to become a statistic in the juvenile system or are they educating children to be the next teacher, police officer, social worker, scientist , and doctor.
Why are student's branded with Criminal records for harmless behavior ?
According to school officials Maryland, a 5 year old child was suspended for 10 days because he brought a plastic toy gun to school.
The child was interrogated until he urinated on himself from so much fear.
Another child nibbled a pop tart into a form of a gun. The child was suspended for one week.
a 14 year old shot a paper clip to hit his friend and mistakenly hit the cafeteria worker. The was suspended spent several hours in jail, and was encourraged to drop out of school by law enforcement's.
