Student punished for taking razor from suicidal boy

Do any of these school administrators have any common sense at all?

A Virginia beach middle school suspended sixth grader Adrionna Harris for ten days — and recommended expulsion — because she was briefly in possession of a razor blade after she confiscated it from a friend who was trying to kill himself.

Last week at Bayside Middle School in Virginia Beach, Va., Harris found a classmate attempting to cut his own arm with a tiny razor blade. She grabbed it from him and threw it away. Harris told WAVY.com that she didn’t have time to get a teacher or administrator–the boy was in the act of trying to harm himself.

“There was not a teacher in sight while this boy was cutting himself, she felt like it was almost like a 911 situation that sh had to help immediately, like there wasn’t time to find a teacher,” said Adrionna’s mother in a statement.

  1. You have got to be kidding me – did no one thank her or ask if she needed to talk to someone after seeing her friend try to hurt themselves. This is just wrong – these people are adults why can’t they see that it’s wrong.

  2. “Do any of these school administrators have any common sense at all?”

    No, no they don’t. I think they screen it out during their job interviews. Critical thinking and common sense are banned.
