I cringe to think how the next 2 generations of kids turn out. :-[

Hell yes, dream! Running through sprinklers, snowball fights, leaf piles, and basketball in the rain. Fun for all seasons. ;-D

Don't blame the lawyers.
It's the friggin' parents who look to solve their problems (and make a cash grab) that are the problem.
We, unfortunately, live in a litigious society where people are looking to the law to solve their littlest problems or to make a run at some easy cash.
Really leaves the schools with no other option.
I have several friends that are teachers or administrators in some of the local school systems, and the threat of litigation is one of their top problems.
Parents will sue at the drop of a hat.
Really binds the hands of what the educators are allowed to do.
You can badmouth lawyers all you want, but they're just doing the job they're hired for; it's the overly litigious people that hire them that are the real problem.
"Sue, sue, sue!!!!"
If you watch any TV, you know there are about 4-5 small claims reality "judge" shows out there, and a large portion of any news channel is devoted to current court cases (not to mention court TV). The law has it place when one is truly wronged, but the incessant influx of court based television seems to have formented a culture where many believe legal action is their first and best recourse to any given problem.
It is not always the best solution.
"Jimmy" is getting picked on during gym class or suffers an injury during recess... Talk to the school represenatives, come up with a plan to aleviate the situation.

Here's a rule to live by:
Litigation should be the last resort in any series of actions taken to come up with a viable solution to almost any problematic situation.

In far to many people's minds, it seems to be the first option.
:-t


Just my humble opinion.
So, does that qualify as a rant?

Great points TTT. ;-D

I definitely agree. It started with the parents. My 6-year old is studying Tae Kwon Do. I will never hesitate to stick my neck out there for him, but I understand what discipline is. His instructors can get downright tough on these kids, some would consider them 'mean', but it's part of the training to attain a common goal within the class. A parent trusts instructors/teachers to teach their children numerous lessons, not least of which is academic. If you, as a parent, don't trust these people to do the job that you pay them to do, teach them yourself.

They already try to ban books in schools.

This is seriously ludacris. Dodgeball? Tag? TOUCH Football? This is stuff I craved for in elementary school. Get away from all that school junk and learning. I just don't understand. It makes me wonder that the people that are actually doing this had NO friends in school. Losers :-t

Doesn't make any sense to me. They complain kids are getting fatter and now they limit they're exercise ;-7 yeah that's real smart. I'll have you all know today we played freeze tag in this summer school thing I help out at. Kids fell and get scraped, but they didn't die. Don't these people know that kids need this stuff? It's like baby puppies they attack eachother all in good fun, it's a game. Samething when kids play tag or two hand touch football, there may be some pushing and maybe a kick, but when recess is over most likely so is the fued, best friends once again. These "educated" people are more stupid than Anna Nicole Smith, I bet she could run a f'in school better.
Keep it lit.
