I was very surprised to find this at Fox News! Zero Patience for Zero Tolerance

This article points out that such policies create as many, if not more, problems than they purport to solve.

Do "Zero Tolerance" policies ensure safer schools for children? Or just the opposite? Is it all about Federal funding?

I've never been an advocate of zero tolerance/zero compassion/zero common-sense, but this article sure goes a long way around to get to a plug for homeschooling.

I wondered if that single line was a result of Fox editorial license. It sounded a lot like redaction. But, I checked the ifeminist web site, and the story appears unchanged. However, considering that ifeminism is an "(i)ndividualist feminism, (that) advocates the equal treatment of men and women as individuals under just law" it's not surprising. They call themselves libertarian feminists.

Anyway, I always liked that recruiting line, ala Neil Bortz. "C'mon...Be an individual. think like me."
