I am writing a debate paper on zero tolerance and I am struggling due to the fact that I dont have enough knowledge on the subject and really no opinion as of right now. I am wanting to know what your views of this policy are and why you feel that way. Do you think that it is unfair or necessary in public schools?
I am just looking here for more opinions then what I have pulled up on my research, and possibly some brainstorming ideas. I will not use any ones response in my paper.

i work in a school and this is what i think ----- schools are covering their asses in the current climate of crazy lawsuits. there is zero tolerance for Everything now. meds, bullying, weapons. it leaves no leeway for independent thought about the punishment fitting the crime. it really does hurt schools. most of the zero tolerance talk came out shortly after columbine in the 90's .... it is a reaction... an over-reaction. really think about this... zero-tollerance for fighting... a child is attacked and fights back. they both are punished the same. no matter who started it. because of that policy they both fought. is that logical? is that good? no!
