Flip-flopping over flip-flops
Once more I see the adult Federal Way School Board, has taken the cowards way out about the flip-flops, saying it would be impossible for the teachers and principals to enforce.
My question is why? I see this as a very poor teaching tool, for their young charges, as they enter the real world, when they start looking for jobs.
I cant think of one employer who would hire a young person wearing flip-flops and expect to work at a fast food chain, in an office, or any other place for that matter.
The school board is not doing these students any favors by caving into their demands. To allow our so-called future leaders this dress code, or lack of, is just asking for trouble for these children.
I sat through, just enough of the Federal Way School Board meeting on Tuesday, June 27, to see how wishy-washy this school board is and the mutual admiration society they have for each other, just like the Federal Way City Council.
It is no wonder our school district is in the red.
Just let the children and their parents run the school district, dont set any real rules such as dress codes, and everybody will be happy. Its no wonder the parents who have children who really want to learn, and not get disrupted in the classroom, transfer to schools where learning is number one. In these schools, they have very little discipline problems in the classrooms. Thankfully, I dont have any children left in schools that cave into students and parents demands.
Would like to know when the Federal Way School Board members are going to grow up and be the leaders they are suppose to be.
Would like to know when the teachings in the classrooms become a springboard to helping our children into the real life outside of school.
