1. Kid attends first day of school with Tigger socks.
2. Tigger socks are against school rules so kid is disciplined.
3. Parents sue school and get $95,000.

I am not sure how heavily the kid was punished. I do think the kid should just have been let off with a reminder letter to the parents. after all it's day one in school.

but the parents shouldn't have sued the school. isn't that what school rules are for? their actions totally undermine the authority of the school. how can schools be guardians and moral teachers if they can't be trusted to implement and enforce rules?

I suppose it is a good thing when I still can't imagine the same thing happening in Singapore.
