All these are ridiculous! I would not let my kid wear a tracking device or an ankle bracelet; can we say "Big Brother?" (From the book 1984, not the stupid reality show.) What would that cost? And you know the cost is taken from dwindling resources that are necessary for academics
which is why children go to school. At least it used to be. Now schools are used as training grounds for Professional Sports teams, Ersatz day care centers, and substitute parenting centers.
When parents STOP expecting the schools to do their jobs, mainly wanting the schools to raise and take care of their kids full time
(school is 6 hours a day, if mom wants to be gone from home more than that it is her and her children's father's responsibility to have someone take care of their kids, NOT the school districts) , instead of educating them
and stop suing schools for horrible mistakes like allowing "other" kids to eat peanut butter sandwiches or suing schools because kids "fall down go boom", then maybe this stupidity will stop.
This "take care of me because I can't be responsible for my own spawn" bullshit has gone far enough.
I thought it was bad when they banned Tag at my daughter's school. "Mom, everybody plays it anyway, we just call it something else." At one point the school tried to then "ban" "running around on the playground. WTF? We're so worried about kids not getting enough exercise then we ban running
? Maybe parents taking some personal responsibility for the kids THEY Chose to bring into the world would be a really good idea. Or the schools simply saying, "It's your kid, deal with it."
Let kids be kids, stop worrying about minor things and stop expecting the schools to do the parents' job, and this will end things like these silly rules.
