A five-year-old girl at Southeast Elementary School in Southeast Brighton, Colorado, was suspended on Monday for bringing a bubble gun to school.The toy, which is made of clear plastic and accepts a screw-on can of suds, shoots out a stream of bubbles when a child squeezes the trigger. In explaining the suspension, 5 News described the toy as a “weapon.” The girl’s mother, using the pseudonym “Emma” to protect her privacy, said it was not necessary for the school to do anything more than ask her to come pick up the toy and bring it home. Instead, the school called and told her to pick up her daughter, who was suspended for the remainder of the day. Emma said she did not know her daughter had taken the toy to school. The five-year-old apparently placed it in her backpack when her mother was not looking. But Emma said the solution could have been as easy as a call from the school to say, “Make sure this doesn’t happen again.” Instead, Southeast Elementary School released a statement defending its decision to suspend the child: While we hear and understand the parents of this student being concerned about this discipline in light of the student’s age and type of item, this suspension is consistent with our district policy as well as how Southeast has handled similar situations throughout this school year. This has involved similar situations where students have brought items such as Nerf guns to school and also received one-day suspensions. The bringing of weapons, real or facsimile, to our schools by students can not only create a potential safety concern but also cause a distraction for our students in the learning process. Our schools, particularly Southeast because of past instances with students bringing fake weapons to school, make a point of asking parents to be partners in making sure students are not bringing these items to school. This includes asking parents to check backpacks. When our schools suspend kids for bringing anything that produces bubbles, there is truly something wrong with the education system in America. If schools in America are scared of bubble guns, then how can we even trust are schools with the safety of our kids. I'm sure the administrator who suspended the kid for the bubble gun, is nothing more then an anti gun nut. The bubble gun probably triggered the schools administrator who probably knows that the kids parents are pro gun Americans. Our schools in America under common core teaching programs, have gone officially nuts with security when they ban bubbles. They considered the toy as a fake weapon on why they suspended her, only proves that schools across America our teaching our kids that one of our most important amendments are not important. For goodness sake it's a five year old they suspended for bringing a toy gun, that in no way shape or form even resembles a real gun in anyway.
