School’s Anti-Bullying Scheme: Smile, Or Else

     With a rash of bullying incidents, a high school principal has decided on a clever plan: Require students to smile or be forced to go to a guidance councilor to talk about their feelz.

“‘If you don’t (smile) you get called to the office or down to see your guidance counselor,’ she said. ‘You have to talk about your problems then. You have to or you get detention.’

“Even though smiling in the hallways is not a written rule at the school district, it is something that Assistant High School Principal Benjamin Wenger has taken upon himself to enforce, according to several teachers. The teachers […] asked to remain anonymous for fear of retaliation from the school district.”

     Rather than actually deal with the complaints about rampant harassment and bullying, the principal seems to want to take the easy route of mandatory smiling. That would give him more time to play “toss the sex toy” during school hours, which is has been accused of doing.

     The children are in the very worst of hands…

    Holy moly. That in and of itself may push some mentally disturbed kid into violence. Although they’ll probably go straight for that principal’s office, instead of going after peers.

    Always treating symptoms, never the disease. That should become the USA’s new motto.

    The education business has gone from strict drills of the three Rs to the Three Stooges – do children receive any instruction in anything beyond self-inspection and critique? The modern panel of angst enrobed subjects led to a school principle believing that the Peter Pan/Tinkerbell method overwhelms logic and classic education. And maybe in Never Never Land it does.
