    All of this crap makes me appreciate my private school education all the more. I haven't heard of anything like this happening at my children's public school, however. If it did, though, I might consider taking them out. It pisses me off enough that they no longer celebrate Halloween because it 'excludes people'. WTF? Halloween was the one holiday where I felt like my weird creative self was appreciated and acknowledged.

    I just heard a quote on the radio- I don't know what they were talking about- but it was, "What's wrong with our boys?" Makes me think about how all boys (and some girls) used to carry pocket knives and knew how to use them (as a tool, not a weapon). We aren't allowed to be self-sufficient anymore, or exert our own judgment. It's depressing.

    I carry a pocketknife everywhere I go.

    I don't think of it as a weapon, and I'm sure I took one to school on occasion when I was a kid.










    Imagine if the kid showed up at school with peanuts!

    :eek:

    We celebrate halloween. The kids have an option of doing something else instead though. We still have singalongs with holiday songs, both Jewish and Christian, just like when I was growing up here. (large Jewish population)

    People get too into making everything work for everyone so you lose way too much.
