At elementary prisons schools in Cabell County, West Virginia, children will no longer be allowed to be children. I should recant that statement because children will always be children, but they will not be able to swing at recess on the school playground. Apparently, “the cost of maintaining a safe surface is too expensive.”
How many of you have ever jumped as high as you can from a swingset and jumped?
Yep, just as I thought… every one of you…
How many of you got injured doing stupid child like things when you were a child????
Yep, just as I thought… many of you.
Final question. For those that are left. Maybe not every one of you broke an arm or needed stitches, but how about a scrapped knee?
Yep! That covered every one.
How many of your parents were dumb enough to sue the school when you broke your arm, or fell on the driveway of the school while carrying your Holly Hobby metal lunchbox, on the way to said playground (which, btw, was asphalt) and needed several stitches?
None you say? That’s what I thought.
Our government prisons schools have done such a wonderful job filling our children with self-esteem, and social skills over the past 2 decades, that those graduates now take no responsibility for parenting their own children.
Isn’t that the goals of government prisons schools? The administrators should be happy…they’ve accomplished their goal in a relatively short amount of time.
Thank God that there are those of us that refuse to follow the status quo and home educated our children to be responsible for their own actions.
