(NEWSER) – A fifth-grader in Virginia is putting her social studies lessons to the test in a fight over ... Chapstick. As the News Virginian reports, 11-year-old Grace Karaffa came down with chapped lips on the playground and asked her teacher if she could have some of the lip balm to soothe them.
She got a firm no, along with an explanation of school policy that Chapstick is too dangerous for kids. "They said it was some sort of medicine, and it’s not because it’s just a little stick of Vaseline," Grace tells WVTF.
