Mechanical pencils aren't allowed in grade schools, but other pencil accessories are allowed, right? Well, yes and no. In the UK, a school banned pencil cases and pencil boxes after one student stabbed another with a letter opener concealed in a pencil box. In a similar case, an honor student was suspended in the US after a teacher thought her pencil sharpener resembled a weapon. Fortunately, pencil grips aren't forbidden yet. It's worth noting that most schools aren't declaring war on fine writing instruments and pencil accessories. Some schools in Chicago have mandated the use of transparent pencil cases.
