YOUR OUTRAGEOUS GOVERNMENT SCHOOL(S) OF THE DAY

In Orange County, Florida a third grader has been suspended for taking a toy gun to school.

The Sunset Park Elementary School student has been suspended for three days after the teacher found a gun in his backpack. The teacher apparently heard the student bragging about the gun to a classmate. The toy gun is described as having an orange tip that "is similar to a real pellet gun."

And for those of you who missed the Information Overload hour yesterday, a government high school in Fayette County, Georgia has one bathroom for 1,300 students.

School officials closed all the bathrooms, except for one, during class time after an incident last year involving a gang beat down in a bathroom.

The logical solution? Shut down all the bathrooms. If a student needs to go during class, they have to go to the front office, wait in line, ask permission to use the bathroom and be given a key to use the visitor's bathroom. Just unbelievable.

This student is smarter than the wholds school full of bureaucrats:

“I think you’ll find that most students want to use the bathroom for its intended purposes. A few fools shouldn’t ruin it for the rest of us. For goodness’ sakes, it was only ONE incident! Bathroom gang fights don’t happen every day, or even every month. There is no reason to take such harsh measures for an isolated incident. And besides, what’s to stop the gangs from finding other places to fight on campus? What if a gang fight occurred in the Commons area? Should we lock that down too?” wrote one student.

After a few students piss their pants (or worse) this policy may get changed.

Wow! We homeschool...I guess we’re really missing out on the whole socialization thing.

I’d better go lock the bathroom now before the kid goes in there an does something bad....

*smacking head in frustration*

Yeah, really smart to be doing this during cold, virus and flu season. After they have to call in 3 or 4 Hazmat teams to clean up the feces maybe someone will figure out that it’s a really bad ides.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

“Locked down” bathrooms?

Amazing how much government schools resemble prisons. There are differeces:

1) Unlike prisoners, school kids haven’t committed any crime.

2) At least prisoners are not subjected to non-stop preaching of the government religion of Secular Humanism or forced to worship at the altar of abortion and homosexuality.

Well,,,kimmie7,,,If you really wanted your child to government schooled “socialized”, you beat him up and steal his lunch money every day.

:)

Locked bathrooms? Time to ping metmom. This is definitely another reason to homeschool!

ANOTHER REASON TO HOMESCHOOL

This ping list is for the “other” articles of interest to homeschoolers about education and public school. If you want on/off this list, please freepmail me. The main Homeschool Ping List by DaveLoneRanger handles the homeschool-specific articles. This is becoming a fairly high volume list.

How many times can we be surprised by what’s going on in the public schools? The absurdities never end.

There’s always another reason you would never have thought of.
