Confirmation of what I’ve said about Modern Education: A six-year-old suspended for being a normal boy

This story made me so angry when I heard it that it’s taken me a few days to calm down about it. But it has made national news. Of course there will be a lot more on this story to come. Here is how the New York Daily News reported the issue.

 

A 6-year-old Ohio boy was suspended from school for three days after being spotted shooting an imaginary bow and arrow.

The boy was sent to the principal’s office for engaging in make-believe marksmanship during recess at Our Lady Of Lourdes Catholic in Westwood, Cincinnati.

Now, his dad Matthew Miele has slammed the school, who insist they have a zero-tolerance policy to any threatening gestures.

“I don’t see anything wrong with the way he was playing, ” Miele told WCPO News.

He notes that his son has never had a problem with discipline.

“The punishment is so severe that it’s hard, as a parent, to make this a teachable moment for our kid so that we can move forward.”

The school’s principal Joe Crachiolo was alerted to the incident after a teacher spotted him pretending to be a Power Ranger as he was playing outside with friends.

The parents say they encourage their son to use his imagination as much as possible, and are frustrated that their pleas for their son’s suspension to be reconsidered fell on deaf ears.

“I didn’t really understand,” said mom Martha, who spoke to Crachiolo after the punishment was handed down.

“My question to him was ‘Is this really necessary? Does this really need to be a three-day suspension under the circumstances that he was playing and he’s 6 years old?’ “

In a letter to parents, Crachiolo said the school has no tolerance for “any real, pretend or imitated violence.”

It is simply disgraceful. Testimony to all the negatives I have stated about modern education practices. The warnings have now manifested into reality.

  1. As per usual, little shocked but overall not surprised. The obvious tipping point in our society is long since pastAnd the outcome will be seen in the coming generation, this very article being evidence enough. Continual dulling of the edge and numbing of our senses, and now somehow acceptable to attack the imagination of a 6 year old boy fighting tyranny through his bow of justice. Yes indeed how to teach the boyThe inherent lesson herein and move on
