Another Day, Another Video of a Fight in NC Schools – #nced #ncdpi

Last Fall, I wrote about the questions raised by how common place fighting in Wake county schools was becoming.

These fights were being recorded often times with cell phones and uploaded to a Twitter account called #30SecondFights as well as other social media platforms. It came out that Raleigh police had responded to over 200 calls about fights from Wake County Schools.

Zero Tolerance Is Literally For The Little People

In my own state of NC, we see that Zero Tolerance policies only apply to the Little People – the students. WRAL is reporting that an “employee” of Wayne county schools donned a black mask and carried a fake gun into a classroom as part of a “citizenship enrichment lesson”.

I’d like to know what the definition of “citizenship enrichment lesson” is at this school. Is it a citizenship lesson similar to the recent one scrapping parts of the Constitution? Maybe a better awareness of one’s surroundings might be defending oneself against rape at school. Also, why WRAL is calling this person simply an “employee”?
