Normally I'd make some comment about the right of the school to extort fines from students without due process, an actual court system, and the fact this seems like its the only place a government agency can issue a fine without a mechanism in place for one to dispute it or the legality of it.. BUT, this is Texas, the state which LEADS THE DEVELOPED WORLD in Corporal Punishment cases each year. Yes, TEXAS hits more students in schools than every other developed country in the world COMBINED -- something like 50,000 students are hit at least once every school year in Texas PUBLIC schools.
Thoughts on fining students?
