First off this doesn't even make any sence, all a kid would need to do was to not carry the thing, so how would this prevent truancy? I think there
is a much more sinister agenda behind this....and hope parents say HELL NO......
My child is 21 now, and out of school...but if I was a young parent I would never put them in puplic schools anymore....I put my daughter in private
school in middle school, very expensive, but worth every penny if you can pull it off....Grandma was nice enough to help our family.
We had some family members that home schooled thier 2 kids....before I knew any better I thought they were "nuts" ...but I have to tell you those
kids turned out to be very happy, successful and well-adjusted...but the parents sacraficed alot, because only one parent could work....and it's
nearly impossible these days to make ends meet with only 1 income.
I do believe public schools have become the "training" ground to condition kids to be obediate worker's for the State...trust me, the difference
between private schools and public schools is day and night....the elite's kid's are learning to be free thinking, creative individuals.....our kids
are being taught to tow the line.....
Maybe kids are refusing to go to school because it sucks if your not an obediant, test taker type of kid....This Star Testing is the biggest joke
ever, shop classes are all but gone for kids that may not want to go to college, all a kid has to do anymore is research on the internet to find out
all the BS being shoved down thier throats.
Sorry for the long post, this subject really hits the "Mommy" in me, and God knows I made my share of mistakes , it's not easy, especially if you
work....but if you are young parents that have no choice but to put your kids in public schools, be vigulant of what is going on, family dinners that
give the kids an opportunity to tell you about school, most kids are HAPPY to tell you what they are learning, and you have a chance at that point to
at least add or influence the types of values and truths that you would like to teach your child to have.
If Mother Nature allows, and these "wack jobs" don't blow us all up...if I am blessed enough to become a Grandma someday, I will do everything in
my power to help my daughter to keep her kids out of public schools...God Bless all the good teachers out there that really want to help and teach
children that basically are having thier jobs threatened if they don't "tow the line" too.....sad state of affairs...
