Cub Scout Gets to Stay in School

In an update to a story I wrote about earlier, the scourge of Delaware who was kicked out for bringing a Cub Scout knife/fork/spoon combo to lunch is getting to stay in school after all.

Zachary Christie, 6, had faced 45 days in an alternative school for troublemakers after he took the utensil — a combination folding knife, fork and spoon — to school to eat lunch last month. Now, he could return Wednesday.

The seven-member Christina School Board voted unanimously Tuesday to reduce the punishment for kindergartners and first-graders who take weapons to school or commit violent offenses to a suspension ranging from three to five days.

The problem remains that he gets suspended AT ALL. This is a kid, for crying out loud.

You can find the original article here. There is some more background information in it.
