I completely agree with you. Schools are for gettin' good learnin...they learn'd me to read real quicklike. The only thing that I can understand about
schools and some of the things they do, and I have mentioned this before, is that their actions are designed, seemingly above all else, to avoid
We are living, unfortunately in a nanny-litigation-nation, which is a term I coined just now only cause i getted gud learnin. When schools have to
constantly worry about lawsuits for TRIVIAL crap, I can SOMETIMES understand where they are coming from.
For instance, the first thing I thought of in this case is that the school could get sued if someone got really sick, only because it could be claimed
they took no preventative action. So where do I stand, since I am saying these things?
I stand here: the schools are still wrong, but the main problem lies in our nanny-nation as a whole. I grew up in a democratic household, but I would
never even dream of the nanny-nation antics that are prevalent in the news everyday. For instance, prayer in schools, saying God in the pledge of
allegiance, or saying happy holidays because merry Christmas contains the word Christ...Give me a frickin' break.
People are becoming TOO SENSITIVE. This is a bad thing, as common sense seems to go out the _ Please note OP that this is NOT directed at your
situation, but at situations in general. I think you are spot-on, and although I understand both sides of the story, at least I think I do, I still
side with you, if it matters, lol. Good thread any way you cut it. S&F!!!
