It has been brought to my attention that several teachers, on a daily basis, wear slippers during the actual school hours they spend supposedly teaching children not only academics, but how to conduct themselves as young adults.
These are our children's role models? Someone to look up to for guidance and the proper way to conduct oneself?
These are the same teachers and faculty who call parents letting them know that their children are not dressed appropriately for school. Are you kidding me?
These are the same teachers who don't allow the children to talk during lunch. It's now called quiet time. For real?
These are the same teachers who won't allow the children to play with a ball at recess because, you guessed it, someone could get hurt.
When looking for answers as to why children are obese, dress the way they do and don't feel any sense of obligation to uphold tradition (whatever is easiest is today's mantra) look no further than the systematic destruction of this country's core values.
Once again it is a classic case of liberalism run amok. I try to imagine back many years ago and what would have happened if teachers wore slippers or children weren't allowed to play ball at recess or couldn't talk during lunch. It would not have been accepted. But now, liberals know what is best for all and will not take anyone's point of view but their own.
