Me in another thread: The boys were always being punished...usually just for being boys and doing boy things, like playing star wars during recess.
It's only gotten worse, I see.
So they were both playing bad guys then.Speaking of education competition, when will “no tolerance” school rules die already? Two 6-year-olds were suspended from an elementary school for playing “cops and robbers” during recess.
Two more Maryland school kids got into trouble for pointing their fingers playing cops and robbers at school.
Actually, in the Eastern Shore schoolyard during recess in this latest case.
It happened last week at White Marsh Elementary in Talbot County.
The two six year olds had been playing and were suspended for a day.
The father of one of the boys is in the Army and said he thinks the punishment was excessive for what amounted to horseplay between two first graders.
School officials declined comment citing federal confidentiality laws.
The mother of one of the boys said the principal told her the suspension in his case would be withdrawn.
A similar case recently in Silver Spring led to a first grader being suspended could lead to a lawsuit there.
