双语阅读:小孩贪吃糖果被留校处分

http://www.sina.com.cn   2010年05月13日 13:54   沪江英语  做出惩罚是基于学校里不能食用垃圾食物的法律规定

  A third-grader at Brazos Elementary was given a week’s detention for possessing a Jolly Rancher。

  一个小学三年级的孩子因为在学校吃Jolly Rancher糖果而受到一个星期时间的留校处罚。

  The school’s principal and superintendent said they were simply complying with a state law that limits junk food in schools。

  校长和监督人说,做出这样的惩罚是基于学校里不能食用垃圾食物的法律规定。

  But the girl’s parents say it’s a huge overreaction。

  但是,可怜的小女孩的父母说,学校太过分了点。

  “I think it’s stupid to give a kid a week’s worth of detention for a piece of candy,” said Amber Brazda, the girl’s mother. "The whole thing was just ridiculous to me."

  女孩的妈妈说:“就因为一颗糖果,让孩子连续七天都要留校,这太没道理了。”

  Leighann Adair, 10, was eating lunch Monday when a teacher confiscated the candy. Her parents said she was in tears when she arrived home later that afternoon and handed them the detention notice。

  10岁的Leighann Adair那天在吃中饭的时候掏出了糖果,结果被老师没收了。当天下午她很晚才回家,并且眼泪汪汪地把留校惩罚通知拿给父母看。

  According to the disciplinary referral, she would be separated from other students during lunch and recess through Friday。

  根据规定,她在惩罚期间不能和其他同学一起吃中饭,休息时间也要一个人呆着。

  The girl’s mother said the incident has taught her daughter a lesson, but not the one her teachers intended。

  女孩的妈妈说这件事让自己的孩子得到了教训,但这个教训不是不能在学校吃糖果。

  “I told her, ‘Leighann, unfortunately you’re learning very young that life’s not fair,'” Brazda said。

  “我告诉她说,这件事让你更早明白,生活是不公平的。”
