Saturday Paintball Rerun...

From March 16, 2008

Get smart...

I read a story awhile back about a kid that was expelled from school because he brought a paintball gun to school. Turns out it was just the grip frame.

The response was predictable and typical. One side lined up on the zero tolerance side and called for expulsion while the other side wanted to know what the big deal was all about. Obviously the kid couldn't wait for the weekend and brought it in to show it off to his paintball friends (It was probably a UL frame - curses to you, DYE).

What I want to know is why kids bring ANYTHING to school other than their books and homework and bag lunch? Leave the damn IPods, cell phones, magazines, designer rags, gamer software, sunglasses, body metal and hobbies at home. Keep your brains glued to the task at hand.

And before you consider me out of touch or "one of those" let me explain my version of "task at hand".

Get involved. Don't just sit and be spoon fed life by your instructor/teacher/professor. Question. Argue. Applaud. Paraphrase. Create an experience and be a part of it.

Don't let stuff get in the way of getting smart.

Great advice. Unfortunately most of us don't figure this out until way past school age. Having someone that is "out of touch" tell you, doesn't seem to work well for kids.
