Common Sense Not a Requirement for Principals

with 2 comments

There really needs to be a zero tolerance policy for lack of common sense in this world.

Evelyn Matroianni, principal at PS 52 in Staten Island, New York, wanted to suspend a nine year old student yesterday for bringing a toy gun to school.

The New York City Department of Education has a “no toy gun” policy and Ms. Matroianni was not about to look the other way and allow the student to violate the zero tolerance rule.

There was only one problem. The toy gun, which was less than two inches in size, actually belonged to the LEGO policeman that the boy had brought to school to play with.

It was only after Ms. Matroianni contacted the Department of Education’s security administrator that the boy was pardoned and the LEGO policeman and gun were released into the custody of his mother.

Ms. Matroianni is an idiot and has no business being principal of a school. She displayed a total lack of common sense and has demonstrated that she is obviously incapable of making any important decisions on her own.

While the New York City Department of Education’s policy on “no toy guns” should be commended, I am sure that a two inch toy gun, that is part of a Lego play set, was not what they had in mind when the policy was written.

Ms. Matroianni should be suspended; in fact she should be fired. Her actions were more disruptive and harmful to the students than the LEGO toy.

There really is no shortage of idiots in this world.

  2. No doubt Ms. Matroianni would call in Homeland Security if she looked out her window and saw some kids pointing their fingers at each other and saying “bang bang”.

    She better ban all G.I. Joe toys while she is at it; those toy soldiers are packin’ also.
