Why are CD's DVD's and the like banned in schools? I mean, people who really want to bring something can get anything in, despite all the bag-checking as you enter and the random class checks.
What's the big issue? I mean, in school, it's just a piece of plastic for crying out loud! What harm could it do? Are there any teachers or principals reading this? If so, PLEASE, provide an answer. Is it just your duty to make our few years of fun as miserable as possible? Is there some separate bag search class in teacher training school or wherever? I can just imagine, "Get those pockets! Make sure you check the lunch!"... Is it and issue of national security? If so, pardon me because I didn't know a cheese sandwich could cause genocide, or maybe it was the plague carried in the cologne spray.
Another thing : correction fluid, or commonly know as TippEx. What the hell? Why is this harmless article of great correctional value not allowed? Maybe they're an endangered species... Or maybe it's just a conspiracy by the Teachers Guild to take over the world and correctional fluid is their only weakness! Hah! See if I'm ever entering school without my trusty tipex in my sock again!
By the way, being the totally cool person I am, ;-), I can get practically anything into school, and being in the 13th grade really helps!
