Applesauce, Play-Doh and forks, oh my!

Zachary Christie, a first grade student, is now serving 45 days at his districts reform school in Newark Deleware for bringing a fork to school. According to Ian Urbina at the New York Times "based on the code of conduct for the Christina School District, where Zachary is a first grader, school officials had no choice. They had to suspend him because, “regardless of possessor’s intent,” knives are banned."

  1. If you don't mind my asking, what do applesauce and play-doh have to do with forks that are not knives? Catchy title really drew me in! Nice use of links and quotes as well, but I am anxious to read the rest of the story!
