Letter: Pokeman case an error in judgement

To the editor:

I am in the fifth grade at Meyers Elementary School and I am writing in response to the March 2 article, “School must pay for taking Pokemon cards.” I don’t think the judge made a good decision.

First of all, the kid broke the rules by bringing the Pokemon cards to school. It’s his fault they got taken away. It’s a bad idea to bring expensive things to school.

Now the school has to spend $1,500 on Pokemon cards instead of books, software, gym equipment, musical instruments or other supplies that benefit all the kids. Rudy and his mom should have put his Pokemon cards in a safe place at home, and not have expected the school to do it for them. Teachers need to teach, not baby-sit Pokemon cards. My parents would be ashamed of me for breaking a school rule, so why did Rudy’s mom and the judge reward him?
