Jolly Rancher gets kid a week sentence ! ! !

My dad used to say,
"It takes a lot of education
to make up for common sense."

A third-grader at Brazos Elementary was given a week’s detention for possessing a Jolly Rancher.
Leighann Adair, 10, was eating lunch Monday when a teacher confiscated the candy. Her parents said she was in tears when she arrived home later that afternoon and handed them the detention notice.
“The Texas Public School Nutrition Policy (TPSNP) explicitly states that it does not restrict what foods or beverages parents may provide for their own children's consumption.”

Brazos Elementary Principal Jeanne Young, said the problem, in this instance, was that the candy was provided by another student – not the girl’s parents.
If you don't think the problem was who provided the candy ...........
