Well, there’s this:

A school banned pencil sharpeners after a 10-year-old boy took one apart and used the blade to injure a classmate.

Punishment: two days off in front of the telly, and permanent expulsion; for the pencil sharpener that is.
And then there’s this:

A 14-year-old Hertfordshire student has been suspended from school for using topless pictures of the model Jordan in an English project

Punishment: one day suspension (though admittedly this included time in his bedroom “reconsidering” his project work).
Good to see that schools understand where to set their priorities: it’s only twice as bad to slash up someone’s face and possibly disfigure them for life than looking at boobs?
