Little kid saw “The Hobbit,” brought a ring to school and told another kid that said ring could make said other kid “disappear.” SUSPENDED!
the principal said threats to another child’s safety would not be tolerated – whether magical or not.
Anybody else here old enough to remember when “imagination” wasn’t considered something to be *entirely* stamped out in school?
People freaking out about kids using “magic” makes as much sense as people refusing to vaccinate their kids… and should be met with the same response: if you are afraid of vaccinations or magic, you don’t have to send you kid to school. In fact… you’re not allowed to. Go wipe out your *own* gene pool, leave everybody else out of your stupidity.
