Zero Tolerance: Sensible Change in Policy

The zero tolerance policy is long overdue for an amendment, many cases that went forward to involved law enforcement was NOT necessary at all, hopefully this change in policy will benefit all the children, as well as adults. Bear in mind, children are still growing and learning, there is so much exposure to their young minds, we, as adults have a duty to "guidance" and "discipline" them, but not contribute to them having a "record", for mistakes made as a "child". Of course I well understand/realize some issues warrant law enforcement involvment, but each case should be investigated thoroughly and proper steps taken, in helping all concerned.
