"Kids should be in public schools, where they're properly cared for.

Just ignore the frostbite and zero-tolerance idiocy."
Fourteen-year-old Kayona Hagen-Tietz was swimming in the school pool for health class at the time. Her clothes were in her locker, and a teacher told her that there was no time for her to change. Hagen-Tietz was rushed outside–still wet and dressed in only swimsuit.

It was 5 degrees below zero in St. Paul that day. With the windchill, it was 25 degrees below zero.

Hagen-Tietz asked to wait inside an employee’s car, or at the elementary school across the street. But administrators believed that this would violate official policy, and could get the school in trouble, so they opted to simply let the girl freeze
Her mother wants an apology and a review of policy.  I'd want the heads of every fucking moron who allowed this- hell, FORCED this- to happen.
