Yes, sometimes sending your kid to public school involves child abuse

Kyler was at school—Coldwater Community Schools in Branch County, Michigan—when he discovered the knife. He promptly told a counselor about it.

He was suspended for one full year.

School officials later decreased the duration of his suspension to 30 days, according to
The issue wasn't just contained to the classroom; it also spilled over on to the football field. Davies tells us the school tried to keep her son from playing football.

"The school told me he could not go on their property, he could not play; he can't ride the bus with his team because it's a Coldwater bus," she said.

We spoke with Coldwater Rocket Football, the organization that runs the local football program. It is independent of the district and tells us the school wanted the rocket program to kick Kyler off the team, but they refused.
A: Rocket Football, good for you.
B: Coldwater Community Schools, you're run by fucking idiots.  "Do the right thing and we'll still screw you.  Because Safety."  Although the proper spelling would be 'Stupidity'.

I often wonder why some pissed off parent does not show up and yank the offending "public servant" right across their desk. If they had ever tried shit like that on my kid, I would likely still be in jail. Who do they think they are?
