Random Topics - Zero Tolerance Policies

A zero-tolerance policy is a policy of punishing any infraction of a rule, regardless of accidental mistakes, ignorance, or extenuating circumstances. The term may be used in general or with reference to a particular category of transgressions, e.g. a zero-tolerance policy against alcohol use. In schools, common zero-tolerance policies concern possession or use of drugs or weapons. Students, and sometimes staff, parents, and other visitors, who possess a banned item for any reason are always punished; school administrators are barred from using their judgment, reducing punishments to fit minor offenses, or considering extenuating circumstances.

1 Zero tolerance policies wouldn't be needed if everyone just enforced current laws and rules already in existence. But that doesn't even come close to happening today, so you get this zero tolerance thing which it turns out isn't enforced half the time either. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on April 29, 2011, 7:07 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Zero-tolerance policies are the lazy person's guide to people management. Examining each case on its individual merits, and making their decisions accordingly, require managers to use their brains. Making an official zero-tolerance policy (with its attendant mandatory penalty) the final arbitor in a case allows managers to avoid having to use their brains (or at least whatever critical thinking skills they possess). This is why your more dull-witted management types embrace such policies. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 28, 2011, 3:25 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote

4 Sucked from the start. Zero-tolerance policies cause more problems than solve them when it does not figure in things like previous track record, and/or extenuating circumstances. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on August 5, 2010, 10:31 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
5 I can understand Zero Tolerance only under one circumstance. The person has to have a track record. If they haven't done anything wrong, or do not have the track record, Zero Tolerance makes no sense. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on December 22, 2009, 11:15 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote

7 Zero tolerance? Zero Common Sense! This policy does nothing but punish people who've done nothing wrong because it can't tell the difference from code violations and perfectly acceptable possession/use of harmless items. You could be expelled for using nail clippers (Sharp blade? They're weapons! End of story!), giving an ailing classmate pain killers (Over-the-counter, Schmover-the-counter! Aspirin is a type of drug, drugs are drugs, end of story!), and not to mention the kids who've suffered because they brought in tools which zero tolerance considered to be weapons. Before the idiots who came up with Zero Tolerance go around telling kids not to do drugs, they should practice what they preach and cut down on whatever they're snorting, smoking, shooting, etc. until they realize how stupid this policy is. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on October 31, 2009, 1:29 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
