Yes, with all the complaints about how lame we are in education, Florida charges a High school student with a felony for trying a little science.

Perhaps destroying this child's life.

I don't want to hear another complaint around here about how it's the students who are the problem.

"News of Kiera Wilmot’s arrest has seriously unnerved me. She is the Florida high school student who was experimenting with common household chemicals in science class that resulted in a minor explosion. There were no injuries and no damage to school property; however, she was taken away in handcuffs, formally arrested and expelled from school."

You do understand how this shows evidence of racism in the Florida schools?

EDIT: A petition is now available.
