Public School Nonsense

In case you’ve been living in a cave, you probably know about the kids in the Bay Area that got kicked out of school for wearing American flag T-shirts on Cinco de Mayo. The story is here.

Silly, is it not? Especially when you consider that Cinco de Mayo is barely even a holiday in Mexico…because frankly, is there really that much to celebrate when you beat the French. I mean, really?

So what’s the issue? It’s simple, really: this incident is a microcosm of the issues at public schools. Schools are overly administrator-heavy (check the budgets along those lines too), and those administrators, well, they often like to go on power trips that often aren’t supported by school or district policy, and usually aren’t supported by any kind of logic or basis in facts. Just like this event.

And people still wonder why homeschooling is a growing movement?!
