"Are carrots supposed to be allowed in a classroom with 2-year-olds?"
"You send them to school because you want them to be safe"

People eat carrots and many other things. The girl could've eaten a crayon with the same result.
You send children to school to learn.
Sad story, but these things happen and the world is far from 100% safe.

Curious if you'd feel the same way if you knew the child, even moreso if it was your child.

Wow, this school is in deep trouble. Not licensed for twos and threes? People just think they can get away with anything these days. The teacher is in troubel too cause teacher bags and purses should be kept out of reach of children. That's a state reg. Very sad for everyone.
