Political correctness took over, pretty much. I quit at public school teaching after I got my license pretty much because we are essentially restricted from teaching properly to follow politically correct guidelines, and that the general leading trend and "full fledged new education research" is taking a sharp turn for a path that I strongly disagree with.

While the teacher should do something about the child and address when is a gesture like that just taken as fun and when is it inappropriate to do that, there's really no need to suspend the child over it =/
