    Too many laws about what you can and cannot do to or for your kids when they are in the clutches of public education.

    The over-control has made a complete turnaround to utter negligence even for their simple safety.


    US mom angry after kids sunburned during field trip

    A mom in Washington state is steaming mad after her two daughters were so badly sunburned during a school field trip, they had to be taken to hospital.

    ....

    Michener was particularly outraged because her daughter Zoe has very fair skin from a form of albinism. She said the school's staff are aware of her daughter's condition, but couldn't make an exception.

    The school board says it has to ban sunscreen because it's state law.

    ....

    She also couldn't try to protect her girls with sun hats because hats are not allowed at school, even on field days.

    ....​

    A kid in our high school was suspended for having Lactose pills.

    They want children to have a helmet for everything but then they will turn around and mandate the most stupid regulations that hurt children.

    Check this one out. I swear these type of stories make my head spin faster than Linda Blair's in the Exorcist.

    And I love this quote from one of the girls. This is the lesson she learned. Says it all and makes me just want to slap someone silly at that Board of Ed.

    “The lesson that I learned from this is not to help people, because helping people is just going to get yourself in trouble,” McKinney said.

    McKinney father, Tim McKinney, says he doesn’t understand why his daughter’s friend was dismissed in the last semester before high school.

    “You work so hard your whole life to instill good morals into your children only for the school to break them,” Tim McKinney said.

    There's already a thread about this. The woman knew the rules and never bothered to get a doctor's note....even though one of her kids is an albino??? And sent one of them to school in a sleeveless shirt.

    I know Ravi just hates white people, so an albino white must get Ravi's blood boiling. But, Ravi is right, this time.

    Mom knew the rules. She still didn't put sunscreen on her child before school. Some might have come off, but not all. She still sent her child to school in a sleeveless shirt. And, maybe mom should have said "fuck the rules" and gave her daughter a small container of sunscreen or a visor to take to school... with a note from mom. Only the most incompetent of teachers would have pushed the rules. Worst case is a suspended child, rather than a hospitalized child.

    Stupid, inflexible rules exist primarily because of stupid parents, especially shit-brained Afros who yell racism every time their shit-brained idea of what is right conflicts with a far smarter teacher's idea of what is right.

    seems if her child has this rare form of albinoism that she would be aware that you apply sunscreen even when its raining or overcast.....basically you dont go out...and there are no raccoon marks....
    i have never known anyone with albinoism who doesnt wear glasses....

    the mother is just fucking with the school....bet she will sue
