Didn’t we fight the Revolutionary War so we wouldn’t have to do this?
A principal at a California elementary school decided to put a new policy in place that required his students to kneel before him.
School district officials in San Bernardino County announced Tuesday that kids at Calimesa Elementary School will no longer have to ‘take a knee’ at various times during the day and wait for Principal Dana Carter or other school officials to dismiss them.
Carter was appointed the principal of the school only three months ago. He said he instituted the kneeling policy as a safety measure.
But of course, none of the staff was on board with this.
Yucaipa Calimesa Unified School District Superintendent Cali Binks told KCAL9the policy will no longer be enforced after several parents had complained. One mother, who has a seven-year-old daughter at Calimesa, told the station that her daughter was being forced to drop down on one knee with her hands at her side, wait for the principal to come out, lift his arms and tell them to go to class.
It’s safe to say Principal Carter is on a power trip. Have a seat.
