Which Side Is Acting Badly?

Either the school and district administrators are complete and total idiots, or something else is amiss and the suspended students are lying about why they were suspended.  Either could be the case here:
A New Jersey high school came under fire Friday after it allegedly suspended two students over a gun photo taken during a family visit to a shooting range.

News of the unnamed students' suspension circulated through a Lacey Township Facebook group, according to

The school, however, denied the students were suspended over the picture.

"Information posted on social media is incorrect,” Lacey schools Superintendent Craig Wigley told the publication last week. The officials declined to provide any additional details or point out what exactly was false...

Overtly broad policies of the school district have been criticized in the past. Ed Cardinal, whose son attends a school in the same district, said the officials once demanded his son to remove a window sticker of a gun from his pickup truck that he drives to school.
Schools should focus on what happens in school, and leave what happens outside of school to parents.
