Nothing like our school systems to get a little carried away... :rolleyes: The teacher would have had to injest some of it for it to take effect, I think there are some individuals in the school district that should be looking for other jobs because of a forced ousting....

N.J. Boy Suspended Over Cookie Threat

SOUTH ORANGE, N.J. - A sixth-grader was suspended after school officials accused him of threatening to expose a highly allergic teacher to peanut butter cookies, the boy's father said Thursday.



Loubert Gabriel said his son, 12-year-old Jules, had been kept out of class since April 2, after a girl in his social studies class at South Orange Middle School told the teacher that Jules had made the threat.


The father said Jules was carrying a snack packet of Nutter Butter cookies and made a comment about having "something dangerous" but never said he had a weapon. "They mishandled this," Gabriel said.


Gabriel said the boy has not been allowed to return to classes pending a May 13 hearing by the district. The family had believed the suspension would be for 10 days, he said.


School superintendent Peter Horoschak said several classmates who were interviewed said the boy — with the teacher out of the room — waved the cookie over his head and said he would use it against the teacher as protection from receiving detention or any other penalties.


"We're very concerned about the teacher's welfare, and how the teacher was threatened by this," Horoschak said.


So far, Horoschak said, the boy has shown no remorse and refused to recognize the seriousness of his actions. Horoschak and the school principal planned to meet with the boy and his parents Friday.


Ingestion of even a morsel of peanut can cause people who are allergic to suffer severe reactions, from throat irritation to death. Gabriel said the teacher was not exposed to the cookies and had no reaction.

I too, am allergic to peanut and soy products. But the key thing here is ingestion. Waving a peanut butter cookie does not pose a threat...it would have to be ingested...which would be very unlikely since Nutter Butters stink to high heaven of peanut butter.

Guess the old grade school game of cops and robbers...say nothing about cowboys and indians is out these days. He!!, we were armed to the teeth with finger guns! (make a fist...then extend your index finger...now "@#)(#" your thumb back in a "hammer pose.") I can understand concern about dangerous weapons in the schools, and a threat of physical violence, but I think this kid was just being a show-off. Probably needed his butt busted...but you aren't allowed to do that any more! It is better to expel the little devil and insure his lack of education and turning to crime and violence than kick his arse and make him behave.

I know, I know...just an old-school guys view of things...however politically incorrect it may be. :D

I never new Hoseshack became an educator>>>

I agree Rogue. I got suspend in the forth grade because I was drinking a soda at lunch, And the teacher tried to make me drink milk... I was severely allergic to milk peanuts and soy so I had to bring lunch everyday. What was the kid going to do, crush the Nutter Butters in to a fine powder and put in the teachers coffee??

Thats the problem with this country. These damn people are afraid of everything, and want protected against it. They probably give the kid life for bringing a peanut butter sandwich to school. Does this go on his PERMENANT RECORD???

Smalls, educators LIE, tell me this ain true!! We send our children to school to learn, and people that LIE are teaching them!! How do we know what they are teaching is truthful? Suppose one of these instructors wanted to further his/her agenda, would they purposely shade the truth? This could lead to a whole generation being fed false information, and growing up thinking in a liberal mindset.

Whiskers, Their 'Truth' IS their agenda! ("It depends on your definition of 'is'"). Sound familiar?

How can you lie, when you don't even open your mind to accepting all the info and formulating an opinion based upon the facts? In my mind, it's not PC...It's Socialism.........
