A recent visit to So. California, included a trip to pick up my nephew from his elementary school. This is what I found, locked gates, locked classrooms equipped with peep holes. I found this to be quite disturbing. I asked my sister about these gates. She begin to tell me about Sandy Hook, and how it impacted them and as a result them found the following security measures necessary. Parents are no longer allowed to walk their children to class. Parents are NOT allowed on campus, if a need arises they must sign in at the office and be escorted to and from the classroom and ultimately off grounds.
I immediately looking at the gates, and fencing around the grounds realized this was no security to keep these kids safe against an insane person with a gun…it was only keeping parents out. The fences, simply chain link. The gates, more then enough room to go over the top, even a trash can easily placed for assistance to make the leap for a fast escape for an insane person. This school simply succeeded in locking parents out, not mad men with guns. Obviously the parents have accepted this lie.
Secondly and I feel more importantly, I had to ask: What kind of message does this send our children? That the school is ABOVE parental influence? That the school is ABOVE parental authority? Parental influence and authority is demeaned by these actions, purposely by common core. After all it is the current consensus that our children are not our own but belong to the state? Don’t agree? Well then why are our school being allowed to take such actions? I am appalled at the very idea would be allowed. However it is the norm in metropolitan areas. If this is not your experience, it is coming soon to your area!
PARENTS!! You do have a voice, I beg USE IT! You do have options and choices, USE THEM! You have full authority to say NO! If parents do not stand up for their constitutional rights NOW, we fail to teach by example to our children, our most precious asset, that LIBERTY is worth fighting for.
