How exactly does the principal think she is going to stop the kids from doing that?

I wouldn't be outraged about the dating, since she can't possibly stop it. I would be outraged that she thinks her policy will have any affect at all.
 
2013-11-22 12:43:08 PM
Oh quiet with the outrage, its not saying they can't put out.
 
2013-11-22 12:44:17 PM
I'm still allowed to date them though, right?

I'm pretty sure the Judge was clear about that.

A better way to avoid discomfort is the birthday party rule: you can't ask a classmate out unless you ask all your classmates out.

When reached by phone by KOGO News, the principal confirmed that she sent out the email but had nothing to say about it.

It seems that the principal probably had second thoughts AFTER she issued the email.

Stupid is as stupid does.

I can't believe I'm gonna white knight this but...

As always what's changed is the way kids can communicate about it - back "in the day" it was a note between you and your best friend and maybe a note to the girl/boy with a (as the country song goes) check yes or no.

Now its 400 text messages with everyone in the known universe copied and a very public execution of the act - followed by accusations, recriminations, or at the very least public class embarrassment not seen since that time your farted in a quiet classroom that, just a second earlier had been a near deafening cacophony.

So this is the prinicpal telling them to "knock that shiat off' because its gotten to the point where its becoming a daily problem for the staff.

They are often liberals and dont exactly have good role models who infer limits in their power.

They pull the same shiat here in tulsa. I can assure you that the teachers and principals here are deeply conservative.

But you could cue a firing squad or queue a firing squad.

It's like past and passed. If you get spooked by them, you have to beat those words back into submission.

They probably couldn't single out the actual kids causing the problem for some reason.

While I'm sure he meant "cue," I think queue sort of works there, no? Queue the outrage. Put all the outrage in the queue so it can be unleashed continuously bit by bit?

It really would have worked if the poster had said "cue the angry parents" or "queue the angry parents". Then there might have serious confusion as to what the poster meant to say.

You're reading waaaay too much into this. Its not about advances in technology. I have a 5th grader and I am going through something similar. Its about distractions. In this particular school, the 5th graders have begun to play a game that has gotten out of hand. Instead of trying to handle these things on a case-by-case basis (which would be very difficult to do) the principal is just saying, "Enough. None of you can do it". I do this shiat all the time when I have two or more kids with me and an issue comes up. Can't decide whose turn it is to play Playstation without fussing? Turn that biatch off.  Can't figure out who gets the last cookie? Give it to me. I'm going to eat it. Arguing over whether its pizza or Chipotle for dinner? Fark it, we're eating salmon at home.

She's just taking the drastic step to eliminate the problem and she's very correct.

This is farking bullshiat. This IS bullying. This IS harassment. How about tell your child she should focus on school and not crushes when she is a farking 10 year old. We're these harpies both in the itty bitty titty comittee?

I took it as "and now the stupid parents who are upset their 4th grader can't ask someone out line up here" and assumed the mistake was not pluralizing "parent".

///But you're probably right.
 
2013-11-22 01:17:50 PM
Well, there's nothing in there about prohibiting boys asking other boys out, etc.  Clearly another example of the homosexual agenda infiltrating our schools.
 
2013-11-22 01:20:03 PM
I see nothing wrong with this. Children and teenagers are learning how to socialize. Sometimes things get out of hand and they don't know how to stop it and need adults to step in and let them know "hey, this thing you're doing has consequences and negatively affects other people. Stop it."

Read the article. This is not about free association but about some ten year old boys (your average fifth grader is 10 not 12) bullying other boys into asking girls, who don't want to go out, out to the point of harassment. Most fifth graders haven't hit puberty yet. Dating is the furthest thing from their mind..And this isn't about dating. It's about being able to bully others into doing something that they don't want to do.

How about their right to go to school without being bullied or harassed?

Let me guess: the parents arranged "playdates" for their kids when they were younger.

/take out tradition and religion; the older generation is still into arranged marriages

2013-11-22 01:28:58 PM
I get it, its a distraction.

But

A. Zero tolerance is never the answer.

Yes, address it. Make the kids understand that they way they are going about it is wrong. Even make the kids understand that they way they are going about this will not be tolerated.

But telling them they can't date...

1. That isn't the right way to go about it and stinks of 'zero tolerance = zero intelligence'.
2. You tell a kid that they CAN'T do something, they will most surely attempt to do so.

At the very least, the e-mail should have said to talk to the children about it, not that they simply CAN'T date.

Oh lord this is so full of stupid.

Yeah, when I had a "boyfriend" in 5th grade, that pretty much just entailed us sitting next to each other on the bus ride home since we had the same bus and stop.  Even though that was only a bit over 15 years ago, technology has changed quite a bit since then and it's hard to imagine how ridiculous this shiat would be now.
