FLA law on no tolerance
Florida enacted a statute that at least requires school boards to review "no tolerance" policies.
"In Hernando County, an 11-year-old girl was suspended for bringing a plastic butter knife to school. A student in Brandon was suspended because a calculator he brought to school was equipped with a "knife-like object.""
It's strange that while certain governmental units are enthusiastic about "no tolerance" in relation to their enforcement against individuals, they don't appear at all enthusiastic about having it applied to them -- i.e., they rush to plead qualified immunity ("even if we violated his constitutional rights, we shouldn't be liable since they were not 'clearly' established" -- i.e., we probably wouldn't have known we were doing wrong).
