In every school in America, students are expected to be housed in a safe environment.
At least that’s the premise behind the furor over recent school shootings.
And in most communities, school attendance is mandatory.
But according to some leftist public school administrators, a political agenda trumps all need for safety.
At least that’s the logic offered by the principal at a Ventura, CA, school as she explained to an enraged father why she can’t stop sixth-graders from leaving the school ‘to protest’…or something.
Because 12-year-olds roaming around city streets unsupervised is super safe and obviously is a really good idea.
Here’s more from PJ Media…
John Gunn, father of a student at a Ventura, Calif., middle school, was enraged when he found out his son’s sixth-grade class was allowed to walk out in protest of gun rights in the wake of the shooting in Florida. He went to the school in person with his camera rolling to confront the principal about her decision to allow political protesting on campus. What Gunn was told when he asked principal Barbara Boggio, who made the decision to allow 12-year-olds to walk out of school, boggles the mind.
“There is no such authorization. If a student chose to leave that’s their choice,” she said. “I won’t restrain a sixth-grade student if they choose to leave.”
Boggio goes on to proclaim again and again that her main job is to keep her students “safe.” (How she does this while allowing them to leave the school whenever they want is unknown.)
PJM reached out to Gunn. “They said it was a memorial. I spoke to my son’s friends. They were playing basketball [during the walkout] when a homeless person came through the fence and took their ball,” he said.
