How useful/effective really is the zero-tolerance policy on weapons in schools?

@dyslexia,
Not exactly a comfortable line of work, dys. But very necessary, I know. Good for you.

@msolga,
Actually I've done a bit of that sort of plotting, myself, in the past. It led to quite a bit of what amounted to periods of "baby sitting" of the students involved. Hardly a long-term solution to their parent problems, I know. At best a bit of a breather, a little time out, really. And someone to talk to. One way or another, most of them got away, though. Some kids face incredible obstacles, just surviving day-to-day, just getting by. It used to amaze me, the the sheer determination involved, to get themselves to school against all the odds.

@roger,

We will need our fonetic lexicografers to refine its logic and polish it up.

I saw an update in the local paper saying the school board in this case is considering retroactively changing the rules to make them more flexible.

Well, if the Spanish language is not absolutely perfect,
it is fairly close. If the Spanish wanna make any adjustments
to render it perfect, thay can turn their attention to that.

Thay might also consider amending their grammar
to shun double negatives.
