  •  A couple of fact corrections (3+ / 0-)
    The girl in question was in a Lab. She was in school, and she accidentally caused an explosive chemical reaction.
    She was on school property, but not in a lab.  The explosion was not an accident.  It was her intention.  Google "toilet bowl cleaner bomb" for a few thousand examples.  

    It's not about "more adult supervision".  She did this with no adults present.  It was not part of any class or project.  

    I will restate that I think her penalties are insane.  A few days suspension would have been more appropriate.   Unfortunately, the facts in this case have not been well presented by the diarist and there are quite a few misconceptions as a consequence.
