Few things I dislike more.

Quote:
This is a story of an almost unfathomably mindless school bureaucracy at work: the crushing of an occupational therapist who had helped a young boy build a record of blazing success.

The therapist, Deb Fisher, is now serving a suspension of 30 days without pay for official misconduct.

Her crime?

She raised money on Kickstarter for a program that she and the student, Aaron Philip, 13, created called This Ability Not Disability. An investigator with the Education Department’s Office of Special Investigations, Wei Liu, found that Ms. Fisher sent emails about the project during her workday at Public School 333, the Manhattan School for Children, and was thus guilty of “theft of services.”


You can read more here for the rest of the heartbreaking story:

Wow. Even if they wanted her to not fundraise during the day (fair enough), this punishment is absurd.
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.--Yeats

If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

I think most of us day job folks are guilty of this.
