CA Elementary to "Discontinue " Policy Which Forced Students to Kneel Before the Principal and Admins.

Posted by Brian

Who says the 'Nobility Class' doesn't exist? A Southern California elementary school Principal with an apparent 'Napoleon complex', appears to believe he belongs in it, forcing students to behave like subjects toward he and his fellow administrators.

Congratulation to the parents who stood up for their children's rights, and alerted other parents to this practice, forcing the school to halt this so-called "safety" measure.  Lets be clear: This is not a safety measure, but behavior modification of our youth, teaching them at a young age to be compliant towards officials.

What is also disturbing about this is not only that the Principle did this, but that the administration and teachers went along with it.  Is there literally NO ONE in this school who had the decency, common sense, and backbone to stand up and say, "This is wrong, and I will not be a part of, or allow, this behavior to take place on my watch"?

Do you still believe that the teachers and Teacher Unions have the best interests of your children at heart?  If you do, you better wake the hell up!
