    Hello:
    This is hard to believe but it is true. I was listening to the local newscasters today on channel 4 here in Milwaukee, an NBC affiliate, and they had a story about a 3 year old boy not being allowed to sign his name as the school administration feel it is not politically correct.

    His name is "Hunter" and they feel if he signs his name it represents guns and other children could possibly think it is ok to bring guns to school.

    So the school has now told the 3 year old that he can no longer sign his name on any of his papers. I have no idea if he now marks an X on his papers or not?

    Are these educators going crazy??? The newscasters had two adult guest on the program and one woman said that she agrees with the school's decision, and the other man a Republican, said these people are absolutely insane.

    What is your opinion?

    Signing his name means sign language .... he is deaf. He signs by crossing his index and next finger on both hands, thumbs up, and rocks his hands up and down making a shooting gesture. YES His school officials must be smoking crack.

    This is a true story from Grand Island Ne. The boy's name is Hunter Spanjer he is 3 yrs old and the school does not like the sign that the parent use for the boys name. It represents a gun. I bet this gets bigger before it's over.

    The story has been on most news, even flinchers favorite Huffington Post. New York Post, ABC, and many others. Guess flincher does not read any news unless it is approved by the Obama campaign.

    Have you ever heard the adage "Educated Fools"? And these are some of the people teaching our young ones! What a shame. But there is another old saying that says: "You can't shame the shameless". I hope his parents file a civil suit against the Board of Education and the teachers involved.

    A more common name these days for little girls is Shithead. Pronounced Shi-thead. No BS. Can you guess the race?

    "What the He?? is a 3 year old doing in school?"

    Uhh learning. My 4yr old is on his second year of going to school. It's Pre-School but they have a lesson as well as art, very basic math and fun time. He only goes 3 hours/day and loves it. He can write his full name can read some small words and has a basic understanding of addition and subtraction. My 18yr old which just graduated this last May also started at 3 years old. You are never too young or old to learn. By the time they reach 1st grade, they know a lot of the basic skills but most importantly they have learned how to learn. Kids are learning stuff in the 1st grade now that I didn't see until the 4th or 5th grade.

    I wonder how many posters on this thread know that the "signing" has nothing to do with writing his name?

    True all the way. Right here in the town where I live. The jury is still out as to what the final word will be. They do not like it. I say tough stuff it is his name. Paul in GINebraska.

    "Jimrich60: IF TRUE......"

    What do you mean IF??? Are you slow? Do you live under a rock? It's been covered by about every news source imaginable. I guess you are still wanting proof man landed on the moon too. Sheesshh

    Yes eightbore, we know. Signing is the way hearing impaired and other challenged people speak. He is not writing his name with the sign language, he is speaking it.
