Fox and Friends: little girl getting a weeks detention for Jolly Rancher possession...(vanity)

Posted on 05/09/2010 7:15:22 AM PDT by cycle of discernment

Seriously, is there any hope for us at this point?

Just watched a little 6 year old that has been chagrined and punished with a weeklong detention by her grammar school because a friend gave her a green Jolly Rancher hard candy in the lunchroom, and a teacher caught her with it.

So let me get this straight. Nowadays, we are forced to expose our elementary graders to "Heather's Two Mommies", how to practce safe sex, the joys of pro-choice in eliminating pesky unwanted human life-- but heaven forbid they act as CHILDREN and break the all sacred GOVERNMENT nutrition law of having a piece of hard candy??

The look on the little girl's face..when Alison Camerata primly said: "Now school is about learning...What have you learned from this experience?" As if to impy this is the most outrageous infraction...a SHAMEFUL ACT.

The little girl with eyes downcast, quietly and dutifully answered "To never have candy in school".

Oh yes..an immortal sin! Hopefully the child can be redeemed through efficient action by the STATE.

Yes, the tender forming mind is being imprinted early on by the new rules of the BORG, raining down imperial judgement on this child, courtesy of the socialist/communst educational machine!

But let's rally round when she shows up for her gender reassignment post adolescence, courtesy of a complete fracturing of her innate identity by statist propaganda.

Yes, there is hope, a growing, burgeoning hope of tomorrow....the hope lies in home educated children, our leaders of tomorrow.

What struck me was the mother’s desire to have clearer instruction.

When I was in school my mother wouldn’t have sent me to school with candy but if we had it we weren’t allowed to eat it in class and that was pretty much it.

Compare this to the 3 day suspension of the kid that fought tooth and nail with me and a principal last week. The 10 year old kid kicked and punched and called us everything but a child of God. When he returns on Monday, he will receive counseling and a mentor teacher that he can go to whenever he is angry at his homeroom teacher.

How utterly sad this is.

In my classroom I always have Hershey's candy Kisses or Starbursts for my students. They get them at times when they are working hard, or doing acts of kindness. (Kind of the Father Flanigan approach.)

That stupid rule in our school would have been thrown out the window, as would the idiots who came up with such a travesty of common sense.

We can hope that the people who set up and are enforcing these stupid "rules" in our schools are having to endure ridicule and laughter when they go out to eat, socialize or from multitudes of mad parents.

Thank God that some media outlet is willing to publicize events like this....maybe the public scorn will get so intense that no school official will be able to show such a lack of common sense.

Where did this happen?

No, it didn't happen in San Francisco, Berkeley, West Hollywood, or Provincetown. This incident occurred at Brazos Elementary School in Orchard, Texas.

Incidentally, Orchard is in Fort Bend County, which has been running ads on our local TV stations trying to convince Californians to move there.

The only thing keeping my kids in the public school is the fact that even though my property taxes pay for the band instructors and all the extracurricular stuff, the school district won’t allow me to get what I paid for unless I also subject my kids to their indoctrination.

We’ve got 4 kids and my husband and I both play multiple instruments, but we can’t make a full symphonic band out of just us.

My son was chewed out in front of the whole class to the point of tears because he muttered under his breath, “Al Gore is an idiot” when the language arts class was forced to watch “An Inconvenient Truth”. (Never mind the f-words that the other kids regularly use and get a “Now now.”)

For his persuasive essay he chose to discuss the global warming hoax. When the language arts teacher asked him what he was writing on he said he was going to show that global warming is a hoax. The teacher said he was delusional.

I believe this is the same teacher he dealt with before on “celebrating diversity”. It was a tough time because Obama’s illegal inauguration was being shoved onto all the kids in school (this was after my kids had been sent to the back of the bus because they were known to be Republican, and the other kids shouted, “Kill McCain”).

There was a wall display taking up the entire 6th-grade wing of the school, saying “Celebrate Diversity” and including photos of people who had only one thing in common: they were neither white nor Asian. Two of the people my kids were being told to “celebrate” were Malcolm X and Fidel Castro.

So I had a talk with my kids about what it really means to “celebrate diversity” and that we judge the things that really matter - the right and wrong - without getting distracted by things that don’t matter, like race. I said that we truly celebrate diversity when we value every human life for its uniqueness and what it has to offer the world. I explained that Scripture talks about the different parts of the body having different functions but we need them all. He was cool with that.

So then when the language arts teacher was talking about the importance of “celebrating diversity” he raised his hand to make the point that celebrating diversity really means celebrating all human life and what it has to offer. This teacher said, “No it doesn’t. It’s really about race. But we don’t have time to talk about this.” And then she went on. She lost him right then and there.

When his Spanish teacher used a communist activist’s “free educational curriculum” to have the class make posters celebrating Latino achievers, my son was given a list of Latino politicians he could choose to “celebrate”. He couldn’t find one person on there who wasn’t democrat and he couldn’t find one person who wasn’t already found guilty of multiple crimes.

He asked me what he should do. I said he should make a poster saying exactly what this person’s “achievements” were. The teacher had no idea that the resource she was using was a communist group. When she saw the poster she said, “It sounds like he was very successful at being a crook.”

Now our local paper had an article that was basically an advertisement saying to any illegal immigrants displaced from Arizona, “Hey, come here! We won’t ask any questions. We’ll treat you like royalty and give you everything you need. And just about everybody teaching and administrating in our school system is a pro-immigration-reform activist affiliated with Soros-funded Appleseed”.

My kids hate school and I hate them being in this school. I spend incredible amounts of time un-teaching what the school tries to cram down them and teaching the academic content that the school tests them on but never teaches.

My kids’ grades would be straight-A’s except they are given projects where they are paired up with the flunkies who won’t do their portion of the work so my kids get the worst grades ever on those assignments which drags down their grades. But it makes it appear that the flunkies raised their grade so it helps with the “No Child Left Behind” concept.

My kids have come to hate communism because they see what happens when you have communal grades: it punishes the people who do the work and raises the belligerent ones who will never do a thing to earn a grade.

My kids are getting a real education on what the world they live in is like.

Schools are getting sillier and sillier with all their infractions- so many rules no one could follow them. Brainwashing our children that every other country is better than ours and competetion is bad. Raising good little socialists is what they are doing.

Hmm, the name Jolly Rancher does sound a bit light in the cowboy boots. Maybe this was just discrimination against GAY candy. Maybe the little girl was just expressing her support for gay people through the medium of candy. The little girl should sue.

Personally, I wouldn’t let an extra curricular activity be my decision to dump my kids into the pit you describe. My kids get the exact same lessons you describe without having to live it.

I’m gonna have to take a different stance here. Seems like I’m hearing from you that it’s OK to break some rules? I think this incident has taken a step in the RIGHT direction in teaching the child it’s NOT ok to break rules. They are there for a reason, even if only to maintain discipline in the classroom.

I’ll probably be roasted alive for taking a more CONSERVATIVE approach to this, but let me ask you a question. Where do we stop after this? Is it OK to RUN A RED LIGHT if no one is coming? Do we teach our children it’s ok to not put on a seatbelt because there are no cops around? If you see an old woman drop a $20.00 out of her purse, is it ok to just put it in your pocket instead of giving it back to her?

Seems to me, I’m hearing a lot more LIBERAL ATTITUDES that we can and should be selective about which laws we follow and which laws we can OUTRIGHT DISOBEY.

If the worse this child has to do is stay after school a few nights for disobeying a rule, so be it. I hope later in her life, she also chooses to follow small, insignificant rules like not running that stop sign or driving drunk and kill someones family.

I am of the opinion that teachers should be armed with flame throwers. When someone like that acts up, or “acts out” in the current verbiage, the teacher should just melt them down. I guarantee, one or two meltdowns a year and no other problems in school, period.

The public schools, because they have to get down to the lowest denominator, are punishing any achiever. The time that has to be spent policing the unruly and upon those who are there only because they have to be there, takes away from time that is supposed to be spent on education. Over lay that with the liberal pressures for our supposed educator administrators, and you end up with what we have now, chaos.

That is the correct response.

The educrats would say, “But we were only trying to protect her and keep her safe.”

And the response then should be “That is the exact reason I am pulling her out of your school.”

If the school suspended my kid for something my child did wrong, there would be a whole lot more in consequences at home than at school. If they did this to my daughter over candy, we'd have nightly trips to the ice cream parlor to teach the proper lessons: (1) we need to follow school rules, no matter how silly, but (2) this punishment was so disproportionate that I don't want her learning the wrong lesson, and the ice cream is in celebration of tolerating an adult's mistake politely. I would inform the insane principal of that secondary consequence and explain that my child will follow school rules, even the insane ones, but I would prefer proportionate responses (from both sides) in the future.

One of my kid’s parents told me on Friday that her son may be getting a scholarship to an elite private school here in Dallas. I told her that if he gets the scholarship that she should do everything she can to ensure that he doesn’t waste that opportunity because as long as her kid is in public school he won’t be challenged. I gave her the analogy of the convoy ships in WWII in which the convoy had to go the speed of the slowest ship so that they all made it together. I could just see the light turning on in her eyes as she realized that her son would always be held back by kids who were either not as intelligent, or who were so disruptive that instruction had to be halted several times a day just to deal with their need for attention.

Yes,it is OK to break some rules.

Are you going to follow the rules when the rulemakers come to take your gun or other property,and get quietly on the train to the ovens like the German Jews?

The trick is knowing what rules to break and when.

Blind obedience is not an American trait,nor even a survival trait.

Imagine if she’d been caught with heroin instead—she would have been awarded full victim status & provided with tax payer funded services.

The home schooling crowd has won me over & there is enough data in now to show that home schooled kids are well ahead of their peers academically & socially.

>”Are you going to follow the rules when the rulemakers come to take your gun”

Please, I’m trying to be realistic here. If you want to carry on an intelligent conversation/debate, then, lets chat. Otherwise, I’ll not play that silly little game of yours.

In hindsight, I would hope the principle would rethink a week long detention, as perhaps a couple days would have been more appropriate, BUT there are facts missing.

Had the child been caught with candy before?
How many times?
Was the child a discipline problem to begin with?

More questions need to be answered.

I can tell you this, when I was a kid in school, I got caught eating candy in class and got a swat on the butt from the principle. Then, I got a swat on the butt from my dad when I got home because I got a swat on the butt at school.

My father always told me, it wasnt up to me to decide which rules were worthy to obey and which werent. He said if I didnt like it, to go CHANGE THEM.

I believe he was a very wise man.

(P.S.) I also believe it didnt do me any harm, as I ended having a long and fulfilling career in law enforcement.

You are the one who equates a piece of candy with running a stop sign.

That is a pretty silly game,in my opinion.

The people who founded this nation tried to have the rules changed but eventually broke or ignored the rules.

I repeat,blind obedience is not a sign of intelligence.

PS I'm pretty sure you used personal discretion in deciding who and when to arrest and charge,or did you try to stop EVERY car going a mile over the speed limit?But every one of those drivers was breaking the rules!

Excellent point. Kids instinctively know when something is not fair. I remember when I told my oldest daughter that the principal at her Lutheran grade school had mentioned that group projects were common at the public high school. She literally lay back on her bed an sobbed! She was boiling mad. It turned out that she didn't encounter that many after all. Thank goodness!

Nope, that’s not my stance at least.
I believe the punishment should befit the crime though.

The kid has a hard candy, make her write lines. Detentions actually punish the parents who have to arrange schedules and the like. And the parent had nothing to do with this.

I would have spoken to the principal about a better punishment. If I had no satisfaction there, I would pull my kid.
This is exactly what got me homeschooling. My daughter wouldn’t finish her work in class. The teacher the year before, pegged her as ADD and would work with her (not free time until her work was finished, keeping her against the back wall so no distractions behind her, insisting on quiet in the class, etc). The next teacher couldn’t be bothered and gave the kid detention. Mind you, my daughter still got her “free time” in class to play, but then stayed after to finish her work. I tried to work with the teacher, but I can’t control my kid when I’m not with her. My daughter began leaving ALL her work for detention time.

You have to do what works, not just punish for no results.

Wow, someone else finally said it. Amen.

Conservatives have to learn that running away is not the long-term answer. When someone says, "That's it, I'm homeschooling!" it means that only one kid out of hundreds - possibly thousands - is going to get a halfway decent education. The rest are going to continue to receive the curriculum the conservative homeschooler ran away from, except now it will be unopposed. Then everyone grows up and gets to vote. So now there are hundreds and thousands of votes against one homeschooled kid. Congratulations on your principles.

If you really want to shape generations, you have to stand and fight, and allow ALL kids to benefit. A one-family army here and there isn't going to make much difference.

**All** schools need rules to maintain order and safety. Children need rules to help them grow into responsible adulthood.

In private schools rules and regulations for the children are privately negotiated between the parents, teachers, and principals. The lesson learned by the children is that caring adults ( their parents with the help of people their parents trust) are helping them develop the character they need to be successful in life.

Unless the parents in this article are financially able to **ransom** their daughter from the government school, the child is in this government (prison-like) setting by COMPULSION OF LAW!

In many ways children ( who have committed no crime) are treated in their government indoctrination camp like prisoners. They are stripped of their First Amendment Rights to free speech, press, assembly, and free expression of religion for most of the day they are under the supervision of state employees. They are ordered by the state when to eat, rest, speak, exercise, and this case, even **what** they are allowed to eat. Their parents must submit to the whims of the voting mob who elect the school board. The school board elections are dominated by the communist infiltrated teachers unions. The parents can not freely choose among schools whose policies best reflect the values taught in the home.

In essence children who attend government schools learn to be good little prisoners of the fascist state.

Regarding government schools, the above can NOT NOT NOT be reformed since it is intrinsic to the very system of socialist-funded, socialist-modeled, single payer government schools. And...Soon our health care system will have all the flaws that we see in government schooling. Government schools **are** socialism. Socialism can not be reformed.

The only hope is if we conservatives infiltrate the education system and take it back.

Please read post #42.

It is impossible to "take back" socialist government schools. What? How can socialism be fixed? How can conservatives make socialism into conservativism? This is not possible.

Not proof read. I am in a rush this morning.

The only solution is to simultaneously shut down the government schools and provide our nation's children with private conservative education alternatives.

Simply by attending socialist schools children learn to be socialists. They learn to be comfortable with taking their neighbor's money to pay for a service that their parents want tuition-free! Do this for 13 years and they won't have any problem with having the government take money from their neighbor for a thousand other wants and needs!

Think about this. Within one to two generations of socialist schooling my great-grandparents and grandparents approved the IRS, the federal reserve, the failed "one world" League of Nations, appropriated lands for national parks with a stroke of the pen and without compensation, and voted for Woodrow Wilson.

My parents and grandparents thought Franklin D. Roosevelt was Moses, and fully approved of his socialist New Deal which prolonged the Great Depression.

My parents voted for Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson and his Great Society. And...later watched as the gold standard was abolished.

Socialist-funded and modeled government schools MADE OBAMA INEVITABLE!!!

When children attend schools that take money from their neighbor children learn that it is OK for the government to take money from their neighbor for services that their parents want for FREE!!!

“When I was in school my mother wouldn’t have sent me to school with candy but if we had it we weren’t allowed to eat it in class and that was pretty much it.”

Had she gotten the candy at home there would have been no problem, but the child got the candy from another student. Here is an excerpt from an article about the incident-

“According to the Texas Department of Agriculture’s website, “The Texas Public School Nutrition Policy (TPSNP) explicitly states that it does not restrict what foods or beverages parents may provide for their own children’s consumption.”

Brazos Elementary Principal Jeanne Young, said the problem, in this instance, was that the candy was provided by another student – not the girl’s parents.”

I tried to warn people on what was happening in the late 70’s but no one listened.

I’m glad she didn’t have to suffer through them. I wish my kids didn’t have to.

And there are so many assignments that are sheer busy-work. Teaching is what I am trained in (I was a Lutheran schoolteacher before we had our kids) so I know how they do goals and objectives, what kind of TSWBAT (”the student will be able to”) objectives are involved, and I am furious at the way the teachers waste my kids’ time teaching them nothing.

The son I mentioned LOVES dealing with ideas. I was up late one night this past week helping him understand some of the global warming facts we have and he looked back at me with dreamy but blurry eyes, and said, “Mom, this is sort of like Heaven to me. I can’t think of anything I’d rather be doing than spending time with you learning stuff that matters to me.”

This kid LOVES learning, with a passion. But he hates school. And I can’t blame him.
