We force educate or at least warehouse them for 5 to 9 hours a day.

We "teach" to the pace of the least able among them. And then perhaps repeat the lesson a couple of times.

We give them prestige awards for accomplishing little other than being present. Maybe hand out a bumper sticker advertising the school for the parent's car.

We drug them. Force them to comply.

And we terrorize them to conformity. Regimented practically from birth to follow the rules made by those far more powerful than them. School yard bullies indeed ... adult ones.

Sorry??? Of course she is only 13 and was undoubtedly intimidated and I am an adult. But had I received this treatment not only would I be freaking glad I did it but would do it again and again and again. This isn't right these school arrests. I have been reading about arrests of children as young as 6. No good can come of this except possibly an awareness on the part of kids and parents that the policeman is no longer a friend.
