School to child: Change name due to weapons policy
And the boy is deaf, so the sign for Hunter is like aiming a pistol or handgun, violating a zero policy take on anything resembling a weapon, according to a report in the torontosun.com.
The school in question is a Nebraska preschool, where Hunter Spanjer, the 3-year-old deaf boy, goes to school.
Luckily, I say, the parents have balked. Many districts are already second-guessing this sort of weapons zero policy that makes policy makers look like morons. Suggesting a name change for a 3 year old is the height of failing to find solutions. And this is supposed to be a place where children learn to think.
The school board seems open to a compromise, so let's hope a little national embarrassment leads to a little common sense.
