Some Rules Go To Far
A THREE year old little boy and his family are being asked to change his sign language name because the Grand Island, Nebraska school deparment feels the gesture, that uniquely means “Hunter Spanjer,” violates a rule that forbids anything in the school that looks like a weapon. Yes, they want the family to change the name of their child. Hunter signs his name by crossing his forefinger and index finger and moving his hand up and down. So, the school says it looks like a weapon. I am sure unless the school allows the kid to use his name in his language that lawyers might be getting in on this one. Can you image being the school offical who had to be the one to tell the family?
