You can ban pencil sharpeners but not the kid who used a pencil sharpener blade to stab somebody

Key quote from this Belmont Club posting:

The school management argued that while pencil sharpeners could be proscribed the attacker could not be prevented from returning.

This is the report that Wretchard was commenting on.

I've said it before and I'll say it again. Education, like any other human endeavour, is either a tyranny or a shambles or both if you can't kick unwelcome people out (using whatever force is necessary to accomplish this), or if those who don't want to be there aren't allowed to leave.
