Where else? Chicago! LOL...Public schools can't teach kids any essential skills anymore. Their no tolerance policies rooted with paranoia and fear prevent such lessons

Doug Bartlett, a veteran teacher with an upstanding record of 17 years, has filed a lawsuit against the school district of Chicago for suspending him without pay after giving a lesson on gardening tools to his second grade students.

The incident took place on August 8, 2011 at Washington Irving Elementary School.

Mr. Bartlett recently filed suit on April 17, 2013 saying that he suffered humiliation and embarrassment as a result of his reprimand.

The “hazardous” tools in question were pliers, screwdrivers and wrenches that only the teacher handled. The tools were kept in a locked toolbox high on a shelf out of reach before and after the gardening lesson.

I just want to know what you do with pliers wrenches and screwdrivers in a garden. That must have been an interesting lesson.

Don't you know anything about gardening??Tongue

You use the pliers to trim the tomato plants.

You use the screwdriver to chase the neighbors dog out.

You use the wrench to scratch your nuts when it gets too hot out.
