What angle are you working here? Do you feed off of negative energy?

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you Stalin Elementary School.

This dude will be fired soon. The school board isn't going to like the lowered amount government funding they'll get.. A lot of that cash is directly related to overall attendance and enrollment.

The principal can't tell the parents what they can or cannot do in regards to what happens off school property or how they get to school.

It is a common practice at many schools by parents who don't want to wait like everyone else, and they were right to put a stop to it.

This is what "fake news" actually looks like, folks. And it took less than sixty seconds to ascertain that.


Oh, Hell Yeah! I deal with idiot "rules don't apply to me" parents everyday dropping off and picking up my kid.

We line up in the right lane on a busy street, then turn right to drive in front of school, where volunteers help your child out of the car. There's always one or two parents who PARK in front of the school, get out and do who knows what - - blocking everyone else.

Kindergartners and First Graders have to be picked up at the classroom. Sometimes you have to park 3 blocks away and hoof it. I laugh when the tow trucks show up to tow those who park in front of the school.

Are you a parent actually dealing with this situation?

I hear that, when I went to school they were cheap, if they had it their way everybody would walk so that they wouldn`t have to pay for buses.
you had to live 1 mile or more from the school in order to get a bus ride,we lived .9 miles and had to walk while our friends down the street got to ride.



Same here...but I wouldnt trade those memories for anything.it was 18 blocks each way to school. My house to Heath's. then me and Heath to Steven's... from Steven's to Larry's.... Larry's to Glenn's and from there to Mike's.
..... and then reverse order all the way home. Winter cold or sweltering hot...4 feet of snow or pouring rain...Walking to school was some of the best times of my life

That school is in desperate need of new management. This principal is either insane, paranoid or a complete moron, perhaps all three.

This seems so alien to me. In my town in Yorkshire the schools are so close it seems crazy not to walk.

There's a bus service for the secondary school but only for kids that live in a town 1.6 miles away.

I literally cannot even begin to imagine anything as ridiculous as this policy, and yet it exists. Terrifying.

Madness.

You completely ignored the facts that have been presented.

And went straight for the hyperbole sensational.

hey - this tail seems to have overlooked an obvious fact :

you can walk a child to school WITHOUT stepping on school property

anyone who requires an explaination on how to do this - probally needs an escort themselves

I'm in Texas and home schooling my youngest girl so I don't have to deal with crap like this. Bullying is really bad in my town or I went to high school with most the teachers here. If I did have my child in school, I would walk with her to school. We live within 2miles of the school so she wouldn't be able to use the bus.

My older 2 go to public school, when I used to take them and pick them up I'd park off campus and walk them up to avoid the line. The school didn't and currently doesn't have a problem with it.

The principal is playing dictator at the school. I could understand if it was an alternative school (school for bad kids). My dad was the principal of one. Those do things differently for obvious reasons. Regular public schools have no need to dictate how parents dropping off or pick up their kids.

Holy moly! I went to that school, graduated Magnolia High School. So this is a little weird. That school is located off of a pretty busy road now after its construction widened it but I wouldn't think that'd even be an issue. How strange......

To each their own... I don't support alot of what they do and teach in public schools. We do alot through various online programs and through a local home schooling co-op. Socializing, field trips etc. It's really not a bad thing, if you have the time to devote to it and properly educate your child( I do) . She'll have the option to go to public school when she gets older.

Of course not. Some children that would be bullied at school are probably better off home schooled.

Wait. In another thread just yesterday you said that it is ludicrous to not support public schooling, yet here you are admitting there are parents who have good reason?

You sure read into something what you want it to say.

The cops there are behind this 100%.


Getting warm, what we are not seeing is that a much greater force is exerting its power over their property and the out-of- school custodians....... The State.

The State is simply showing who's boss and whose got the power by their oversight and control of the parents and the kids via their ability to implement policy and if necessary, laws and enforcement.
