These days, schools are attempting to carefully balance their obligation of keeping students and faculty safe and upholding rules and standards. This balance can sometimes be difficult for parents and students alike. Since schools in the U.S are managed by townships and cities and not a state wide or national set of rules and regulations, each school can sometimes have policies that differ greatly from one school to another. And that’s just public schools. Private schools can apply an entirely different set of guidelines and create their own rule books for students to follow. Sometimes, these rules can be strange and cause some pause.
In recent years, the influx of school incidents has caused administrators to go a little batty with their rules. Some policies and rules such as reinforced doors and lock systems, which prevent people from walking right into schools, have become a necessary part of our education system. Certainly, we must protect our students and teachers from crazies.
Also, harassment, verbal and sexual in nature, have become hot topics in our educational system. Teachers are extremely guarded against contact with students that could be deemed anything but professional.The old way of a student giving a teacher a hug isn’t an acceptable practice. It could be considered either inappropriate contact on the teacher’s behalf or sexual harassment on the student’s behalf. Times have definitely changed and the rules governing these schools have also taken strange twists and turns.
These aren't the kinds of kids who sneak drugs onto campus or start fights. But they still got suspended nonetheless. These are the 10 Dumbest Reasons Kids Got Suspended From School.

1 Chivalry Is Dead
Teaching young boys to be respectful is an important part of their development. We want our young men to exemplify honorable behaviors. We commend chivalry and criticize rudeness. So when a middle school student at Southampton Middle School in Virginia saw a parent he knew with her hands full, he leaped in action. The parent was approaching the school doors with two full hands and the boy held the door open for her. Despite the innocent and respectful action, the boy was suspended for allowing the parent into the school without first having to be vetted by the security camera. We get the rule, but is this the best time to enforce it? The school district’s superintendent didn’t budge and the student was suspended for a day. You just can’t win, kid. Whether you hold the door open or not, you’re always going get in trouble with the ladies.
