Stories from the headlines

The New York Times has a piece on a 6-year-old facing a 45-day suspension from school because he brought a fork/spoon/knife combo from Cub Scouts to school. He wanted to use it to eat his lunch, but the school has a "zero-tolerance" weapons policy (apparently it doesn't apply to lunch ladies who need knives to prepare food).

Anyway, you'd have to adjust the age of the child, but what a great middle grade novel this could be.

Read the story.
