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."
