Which is why our education system is strangled because every parent wants to sue for teachers and principles not covering their child's nose for them
when they sneeze.

Not at all.
There is a big difference between wiping a nose and enforcing an ideal that a parent might not share. In fact, it was insulting to the parent I bet. I
feel insulted! And it wasn't my kid.
It reminds me of one of several battles I had with the school system growing up. First it was my cursive letter "B" was different from what the
school wanted, however,my mom taught me cursive, and her letters were slightly different. I personally (I was in 4th grade) felt humiliated and
unjustly treated because it was not the same as what my teacher wanted, however, it was correct. It actually created a lot of tension in school, and
everything went downhill from there.
Teachers complain that parents are not doing enough with their children, and I agree, however, when it comes to food, they have NO RIGHT to enforce
ANYTHING, unless the child is starving. The school system, social services, and it seems many people in society want us to go back to the 1950's.
Where one parent worked and one stayed home. It is not really possible to do these things anymore.
Although that is kind of what I am doing,being an at home parent due to being unemployed.
My point is that the school system wants to have all of this power over the kids, but yet when they do something that is totally wrong, it somehow
becomes the parents fault. I have no love for the school system in the US, it processes children like a factory, and often the kids are the ones to
I still would file a lawsuit.
