In the annals of amazing young musicians, Avery Gagliano is making herself quite the niche.
In the annals of timid, heartless school administrators who think the purpose of students is to be abused with idiotic rules, and preen about “zero-tolerance” policies that take plastic knives away from eight-year-olds and suspend first-graders, this is some kind of new low, and deserves note. Jemea Goso, are you are just personally clueless and heartless? More likely the cowards you report to, who won’t take responsibility for this, have nailed your feet to the floor so you can’t do your job.
You would all be merely ludicrous, if you weren’t dangerous to kids.

These versions cannot both be true.
Update 10/IX: Dvorak replies.
