IS PUTTING YOUR KID IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS PARENTAL MALPRACTICE? (CONT’D): Boy, Not Making Bombs, Arrested for Having Things Cops Think Could Blow Up (And For Drawings That Spooked a Teacher). Nothing actually dangerous was found.

Lest you think it is inherently suspicious a young man would have chemicals or electronic parts, note that his school is, according to a Press of Atlantic City account, “a magnet school with programs focusing on engineering and environmental sciences and specializing in hands-on learning.”

The system and police should apologize, and there should be consequences and reparations all around. But there won’t be, because accountability is for the little people. Which is why I’m beginning to think that putting your kids in public schools might just be parental malpractice.
