Astonishing zero-tolerance lunacy from the zero-intelligence government educrats we entrust to teach children:
A third-grader has been sent home from a Greeley [Colorado] school to change out of his Peyton Manning jersey because Manning’s No. 18 is too close to the name of a local gang.
CBS Denver reports Konnor Vanatta was forced to take off his jersey because of a Greeley school district policy that bans clothing with “18″ on it.
How do you explain to a third-grader that the reason he can’t wear his prized Peyton Manning jersey is that schools are run by militant fools?
Other numbers banned by the school district include 13, 14, 31, 41, and 81. Yes, I’m serious.
Coming next: bans on various letters of the alphabet.
