Students Expelled

It has come to my attention that two students were expelled recently from a local private school for stealing a test from a teacher.

No doubt this is a very sad and difficult time for these children and their parents, but I am going to look at this from the bright side.

For the expelled students, they are learning a painful and necessary lesson. There are consequences for criminal behavior. You will not always get a second chance.

For the rest of the students, there is also a lesson. You are expendable. Bad behavior will not be tolerated. An education in a private school in not a right. You are expected to behave properly and respectfully and if you don't, we will replace you will someone else.

Isn't that a bit like real life?

It's what real life SHOULD be...

Of course it is not like real life.
Look at our DUI laws, or lack thereof.
Or our home mortgage situation.
Who are you trying to kid - yourself?

OK fine, maybe Chris is right on this one.

If it's the school I suspect it is their parents must not be on the "do not mess with" list.
