A fourth grader in Houston, Georgia received a 3-day suspension for bringing a Nerf gun to school, because officials deemed it to be a weapon, and schools don't mess around these days when it comes to anything with the word "gun" in it. With good reason. The problem in this situation, though, is that Ramsey McDonald was following an assignment to "bring in some of your favorite toys."

Scott McDonald said his son told him he was bringing an iPad and a couple of his toys, which sounded okay to him, even though it would've been reasonable to wonder why his kid's teacher would want students bringing toys to school in the first place, as "not enough distractions" isn't one of the many problems facing our education system.
