A county by us has a fire marshall going through schools and making them take down all the art and learning materials on bulletin boards. It's a fire hazard, doncha know....grrrrr.
I'm sure we all can recollect how proud we were to go home and tell our parents that our work (be it art, essay or a lovely printed paper) was on the bulletin board in the classroom, or do we dare hope - in the hallway or cafeteria for all to see. Did any of your schools burn down due to a homemade covered wagon sitting on top of the lockers?
This to me is on the line of the counties that won't allow jungle gyms, whirly gigs, slides, kickball or tag to be played during a break because it might hurt some child. I can't believe what is going on in this country. It makes me want to scream.
My word, our family has had it's share of broken bones, bruises, bumps, stitches and scars from playing outside. I wish the courts would toss out these stupid frivolous lawsuits that people and their lawyers are bringing in to clog up our court system.
I could spit nails.
Yes, I KNOW some are legitimate but a very high percentage are ...ridiculous!!!
