Looking on the bright side of schools in Spain

At least they don't call the police to arrest twelve year old girls that doodle on their desks:
A 12-year-old Queens girl was hauled out of school in handcuffs for an artless offense - doodling her name on her desk in erasable marker, the Daily News has learned.

[...]

Alexa is the latest in a string of city students who have been cuffed for minor infractions. In 2007, 13-year-old Chelsea Fraser was placed under arrest for writing "okay" on her desk at Intermediate School 201. And in 2008, 5-year-old Dennis Rivera was cuffed and sent to a psych ward after throwing a fit in his kindergarten.

I didn't even know they made handcuffs for 5 year olds. Only in the US, I guess.
