Discussion Topic: On Nerf Guns In Schools
By Dave Hurteau
From South Carolina’s The Beaufort Gazette:
A science teacher at Battery Creek High School resigned Friday, about two weeks after he was placed on paid leave for shooting a foam dart from a plastic Nerf gun at a student. . . .
On Feb. 23, Baker fired a foam dart at a 14-year-old girl in a "joking manner," according to a Beaufort County Sheriff's Office report.
The dart hit the girl's left shoulder. She then stood up and slapped Baker with the back of her hand, according to the report.
The mother of the girl said she wanted to pursue assault charges . . . .
