When I watch clips like this, it furthers my believe that the public school system should be dismantled. The same thing should go for the Department of Education. We can take all that money that's gone into the public school system and Dept. of Education and kick it into private schools and vouchers for those who can't afford it. It's saying quite a bit when private schools produce much better results in children's education. Once again, I blame it on government oversight.The public school system has WAY too much control over our countries children. It's the parents primary responsibility to determine what is in the best interest of a child.
That second clip, she's right in a way. Children do, in a way, belong to a community. I grew in a small community. When children acted up, not only did we get from our parents, we got it from whomever caught what was going on. My question is, where are the other parents of that community? They should recognize that one day it could be any one of them trying to pick up their kids and not be allowed to. This could happen to ANYONE with kids in a public school system.
People, we are not sheep. We are not powerless. All it would take is no less than twenty or parents marching into the school superintendents office to have that changed. Imagine if that community stood together in the face of that school's ignorance. We're all a community. We're a community faced with the biggest threat known to our way of life. How can anyone not see this?
I hope that parent sues that deputy sheriff, the sheriff's office, the school, the school superintendent, and the state. We should all be cheering him on.

Yes, you can take your child out of school early for various reasons, like doctor appts., out of town trips, etc., but when you sign your child out, you usually have to give the reason (at least you did in every school my daughter attended). This guy didn't have any reason other than he wanted to avoid the traffic jam. Gee, I suppose every parent should have then been allowed to park their car in the pick-up line, walk into the school, then demand that their child be released right now, so they could drive away. Can you imagine the chaos in the lobby at that point?
