bringing her brother's toy gun for show and tell for kindergarten....

She can't even be on school property EVER, even when her parents pick up her older brother.

Watch this video before you say the school did the right thing:

This pretty much sums up my feelings. Zero tolerance policies are lazy and stupid!

unfortunately zero tolerance policies have tied the schools hands in situations like this

that's a little dramatic. This isn't going to be in her permanent file, and she isn't going to prison. Her parents will have to be more observant of what their kids are taking to school. Of course it isn't the child's fault, but when you lat your kids have toys in the house that they aren't allowed to bring to school, you need to be checking what they are TAKING to school in their bag. My 3 year old goes to preschool on a bus. I check his backpack before he leaves everyday.

Go to most schools websitesand they have this written as one of their policies, guns, even TOY guns equal an immediate expulsion.

It could have been prevented if the parents checked their daughter's bookbag.
