Should students be allowed to violently defend themselves in school [View all]

A female high school student has been expelled from her school after she kneed a boy in the groin while he was blocking her from leaving the girls bathroom. The boy, along with 6 other male students, entered the girls’ restroom at North Pole High School in Alaska to protest a selfie taken in a boy’s bathroom by a student transitioning from female to male.

Zero tolerance policies say that anyone using violence - even if in self defense - must be punished.

This girl also seems to have run afoul of the fact she struck first.

Me personally? I wouldn't be mad if she was my daughter. I'd tell her she had every right to defend herself and she should do so again if she has to.
