After countless headlines about students being expelled for taking toy guns and knives and other minor weapons to school, the Georgia Legislature passed Thursday night a measure to end the so-called zero tolerance policy.
House Bill 826 creates a new class of weapon and gives schools authority to deal with them when students bring them on campus or a school bus. However, the law continues to permit law enforcement to press charges if any weapon is used in a threatening manner.
Georgia, cracking down on "Zero Tolerance"?
Sounds just peachy to me!
