School Bans Deaf Child's… Name?!

Hunter Spanjer is a young deaf boy whose name in sign language looks a little like finger pistols.

A little too much for Grand Island Public Schools!

The district's Zero Tolerance policy means absolutely nothing that resembles a weapon will be allowed into the school.

Including a preschooler's fingers?!

Ch-ch-check out the video (above) and see if U think Hunter is dangerous!

Zero Tolerance? Come on, guys, how about just a LITTLE common sense instead!

New GPS Uniform Texts Parents When You Skip School

New GPS Uniform Texts Parents When You Skip School

Big Brother Mother is watching you!

Kids in Brazil that like to skip class are super screwed. The city of Vitoria da Conquista is requiring that all 43,000 students attending their 213 public schools wear uniforms with location micro chips. It's kinda like the micro chip you give your doggie.

The smart uniforms sends a text message to parents when their child enters school grounds and when they're late to class.

This may seem awesome for the parents — but it certainly has its down side.

Now that the parents are totes aware of their kid's attendance, if their little angels continue to skip, the Brazilian CPS comes after their care takers.

Do U think Americans should use these uniforms??

Susan Sarandon Gives $75k To Table Tennis Programs In New York Public Schools

Filed under: ZportzSusan SarandonFitness

Sarandon Ping Pong

Kinda seems like an oddly specific thing to donate to, but we're not complaining: ping pong RULES!

Ha!

So Susan Sarandon apparently just gave $75,000 to table tennis programs in NY public schools — which will go towards equipment and coaching!

More than 25 of the schools have now added table tennis to their programs this year!

We know what you're thinking. You're thinking this is a little odd.

But did you know that Sarandon is the co-owner of a Manhattan table tennis club called SPIN??

Because she totally is — and now it makes perfect sense!

How wonderful, Susan!

Eddie Van Halen Donates 75 Guitars To El Lay Public Schools

Filed under: Music MinuteCharity

Eddie Van Halen

Nice guy!

Eddie Van Halen endorsed musical education by donating 75 electric guitars to El Lay schools from his personal collection last week.

The rock star made the donation to Mr. Holland's Opus Foundation, a non-profit organization that supports music education in public schools, and said:

"Music is the universal language. It has the ability to transcend and convey every human emotion that exists without saying a word. Music kept me off the streets and out of trouble and gave me something that was mine that no one could take away from me. Music education and families are dealing with the economic times, and I wanted to help them. If I can help a kid discover a liking, or even a passion for music in their life, then that's a wonderful thing. Music has provided a good life for me and hopefully it can help make life better for others with this donation."

So true! Music has done nothing but good in this world and we're happy famous musicians are willing to support others trying to learn how to make it!

Very cool!

Many celebs came out in the cold rain Sunday night to support the 16th Annual P.S. Arts "Express Yourself" event at Barker Hangar in the Santa Monica airport.

Jack Black arrived, bringing his son Sammy, while other celebs like Lisa Kudrow and Adam Scott also came out to to lend their support.

The program raises awareness for California public schools that are severely lacking in the arts department.

It's such an important cause! Kudos to all those who came out and supported the program.

Filed under: Legal MattersEducational

glee bulling time

YAY!!!

Last week the Michigan State legislature passed an anti-bullying bill named Matt’s Safe School Law or, the bill's unofficial tittle, How to Bully and Get Away With It: A Users Guide to Michigan Public Schools.

You see, this bill said bulling can be completely excused, as long has you are bulling “for religious or moral reasons."

As you can imagine, really irritated the LGBT and Muslim communities. Cause, like the great Steven Colbert pointed out:
