Northcoast Schools Just Like The Rest?
Maybe they are.
I'm sure we've all read the stories of overkill reactions at schools around the country:
A kid getting suspended, expelled or even arrested as a result of some school district's zero tolerance policy on drugs or weapons. Whether it be a kid in possession of a couple aspirin, or even a butter knife brought to school in a lunch box, kids are often dealt with ruthlessly.
I hadn't heard much in the way of that happening up here. I figured maybe we're a little more mellow up here, or maybe we just have a little more common sense and thus avoid overreacting the way some other school districts do.
I guess I was wrong.
