After three hours of debate, the school board of East Falls Elementary have agreed to allow incoming student, Cornelius Petticoat, the use of normal scissors in lieu of safety scissors, but declined his second request to run with them.
Petticoat, who speaks three languages, was pleased with the board's overall decision. "I'm happy the board was able to see my point of view. I stopped using safety scissors when I was 2."
The future kindergartner began his plea with faculty in May 2014 after being forced to use kid scissors throughout Pre-K 4 which he believed impacted his arts and crafts performance.
"If you go back and look at some of the projects I worked on last year, they were by far the best in the class, but well below my normal standards. That sorry excuse for a cutting device severely impacted my ability to perform precision style cuts of which I am accustomed," said Petticoat.
For the duration of the summer, Cornelius tells MPG that he plans on second guessing his mother's parenting skills and binge watching Game of Thrones from the beginning.
