Whitby student suspended for jaywalking

So I am reading Reason's Brickbats section and I come across this entry which is about a story in an Ontario newspaper wherein a high school student who was given a 1 day suspension for jaywalking on the way home from school. It includes this quote:

Her mother says school officials told her the school day doesn't end until the student is back in the house. She asked if the school would be liable if her daughter had been hit by a car or mugged or raped after she left school. "What I was told was, 'Let's not get carried away,'" said Jackie Simo.
Brickbats kinda reminds me of Ananova's Quirkies.
