Boy turns in knife but may still be expelled

There's something truly ugly in this country, and it's called Zero Tolerance. School administrators get the privilege of not needing to ever thing, simply not being tolerant of the slightest infraction, and prescribing the maximum penalty.

This may happen if, perhaps, "a Warren Township Schools principal suspended their son and recommended his expulsion for possession of a pocketknife even though he turned the knife in to the office as soon as he arrived at school."

Absolutely disgusting.
