A Principal Asked The Parents Of Her Students To Make Sure They Dress Appropriately When Dropping Them Off
Yahoo- The principal of a primary school in northern England wants to impose a dress code — not on students, but on their parents.
That's because she's tired of them wearing pajamas and slippers when they drop off their offspring at the school gates each morning.
Kate Chisholm of Skerne Park Academy in Darlington, 240 miles (385 kilometers) north of London said she acted after some parents wore what she considered nightwear to school meetings.
In the letter published Tuesday she asked parents to "dress appropriately in day wear" when bringing their children to school.
Chisholm said she wanted parents to set a good example for the students and that it was "not too much to ask parents to have a wash and get dressed."
That doesn't seem like too difficult a request to fill, right? I mean, if it was socially acceptable to walk around in public with pajamas on then everyone would do it. That's why I am inclined to agree with this head bitch in charge. We should set a good example for our youth by putting on actual clothes before leaving the house. That line of thinking doesn't seem too outrageous to me.
Therein lies the problem, because if there is one thing I know about parenting it's that I am not at liberty to tell ANYONE how to do it. Sure, I manage to put my grownup pants on one leg at a time, but I am just a 29 year old asshole that's only doing a moderate job of keeping myself alive. I am not like the people for which this letter was meant. Those people all have thing in common that I am not even close to having...A FUCKING CHILD. Another person that they have to prepare for life on a daily basis. I struggle to do that for myself, I can't imagine what it would be like if I had to do it for someone that was completely and utterly dependent on me first. I would probably show up to that school barefoot with one eye open, a toothbrush in my mouth, and an extremely awkward erection that hadn't subsided yet. These parents should be commended for putting footwear on, not chastised for it being too comfortable for the liking of someone -who I assume- is a sexually frustrated unmarried woman in her forties. Hey Kate, kick rocks you passive aggressive twat. A parent's job is to get their kid through the door, not make sure they abide by some imaginary dress code when they do. A school's job is to make sure that kid doesn't die for a couple hours a day while occasionally teaching him/her a thing or two. If you don't want children to think it's okay to wear pajamas in the light of day then put it in the fucking lesson plan. Isn't that what the people -whose morning attire you're criticizing- are paying you for? Next time you think about telling people what to put on...
