Expelled From Middle School For OTC Meds- Another Knee-Jerk Reaction?

In Florida the school board has upheld the expulsion of a middle school girl for carrying over- the- counter medicine for her allergies and headaches. Is the school board acting in wisdom here?

Social Worker- Mental Health, Addictions, and Behavioral health- Leadership Educator-, Juvenile Justice. A variety of coaching. I have a great desire to help others make it through times that I myself have had to navigate. I understand the process, the pain,and the support needed. I, and the rest of my team all have both the formal education to coach others but more importantly we also have the life experience which allows us to relate to all the phases and hurdles that come with recovering from issues like depression, addiction, domestic violence, spiritual confusion, and much more. I feel that the combination of formal training and life experience allows us to meet those we help every point of need- in a real way.

  1. Another great example of the stupidity going on in our schools. Really nothing surprises me anymore. Maybe they should spend more time on education and less on discipline. I love when I ask how my kid is doing in school they start with his behavior which is always good. Um…I was more concerned with his schoolwork. Pathetic! Shame on that school! It ranks right up there with my son getting 2 days out of school suspension in kindergarten for pulling the handicap accessible fire alarm. Just plain stupid!
