This is f'n ridiculous.
A sixth grade student in Virginia took the blade a friend was using to self harm and threw it away. She let an authority figure know what happened, and she was rewarded with a 10-day suspension and a recommendation for expulsion.
Way to teach the youth of America. D*cks.
The school wouldn't return the parents' phone calls until a local news station got involved. Again I say... d*cks.
