Show and tell

Posted By on Fri, Jul 17, 2009 at 7:47 AM

The following is an excerpt from a routine daily report to the Little Rock School Board on unusual occurrences in the district. File it away the next time you hear one of the usual suspects blame all student shortcomings on teachers.

Staff had found drug paraphernalia (a pipe) in the backpack of a 5-year-old student.  When questioned, the student stated that all the people in his house smoked / used drugs.  DHS was contacted and the parent was called in.  The parent was subsequently drug tested, and the results were positive.  Two children were taken into DHS custody.
