A serious over-reaction in Eagan

An event with helium balloons always results in balloons in the ceiling. A parent at Red Pine Elementary in Eagan offered to bring in a BB gun to shoot them down. The principal said he didn't think that was a good idea with kids around and a strict no-weapons (or anything that looks like weapons) policy in the school district, but agreed to allow the parent to come in after the event was over and the kids had left that evening.

Now, that principal is scrambling to explain the fact that he allowed the BB gun in the school.


Because reporters are pushing him on it. The Star Tribune seems to think it's something parents should be upset about.


Stuff like this makes me want to keep my kids as far away from a public school as possible.

The STar TRIBune readers appear to agree. Check out the poll at the end of the article:

seriously, couldn't they just wait until the balloons fell from the ceiling? Maybe it seemed like a good idea at the time.
