FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE

Thursday

Just Another Day for Government Schools

Do you remember the days when Kindergarten boys would go up to a girl on the playground and give her a kiss, because he had a crush on her? It was, basically, the equivalent of Kindergarten flirting.

Under the Kindergarten category of flirting are chasing a girl around the playground, shoving a frog in front of her face just to hear her squeal, and pushing other boys out of the way to sit beside her during story time.

These were innocent actions, and they were received as such by the girls, and the teachers who witnessed them. They were chalked up to youthful innocence.

THEY WERE NOT CONSIDERED SEXUAL HARASSMENT BY TEACHERS AND ADMINISTRATORS!

I’ve already told you about the 4-year-old who was suspended for hugging his teacher. Now, we have a new one out of Maryland. A 5-year-old has been charged by school administrators with Sexual Harassment. So, what did he do? He pinched a girl’s butt.

If he were 15, and did something like that, it would be a different story. Hell, if he were at the age that he could even pronounce “Sexual Harassment,” it would be a different story. But, we are talking about a 5-year-old!

Granted, that type of behavior should not be encouraged. The teacher should have told the parents what happened, and let them handle it. But, the very fact that the school administration took it upon themselves to charge the kid with sexual harassment, and make a formal charge in his school record, is the reason that Government schools are ABOMINATIONS.

There is a distinct reason that these administrators work for the Government. That type of intelligence (or lack thereof) and hyper-sensitivity would get them booted out of a private-sector job in a heartbeat. They couldn’t hack it.

This quote sums up the ridiculous policies of Government schools:

“It's important to understand a child may not realize that what he or she is doing may be considered sexual harassment, but if it fits under the definition, then it is, under the state's guidelines


This is the essence of a ridiculous “Zero-Tolerance” policy. The only people who rely so heavily on “Zero-Tolerance” policies are people who refuse to use their brain for two seconds to actually look at an individual situation. They refuse to consider the facts of the situation (such as a child being too young to even be able to commit Sexual Harassment). Instead, they default to automatic punishment.

But, it does appear that this school has a method for reviewing an individual situation:

“School officials consider a student's age and the specific action when determining what administrative action to take”


I’m thinking that their process of “consideration” went something like this:

1. Has he, at least, reached single-digits in his age? Yes.
2. Did he, in any way, make physical contact with another person’s butt? Yes.
3. Good enough for us! That’s sexual harassment.

The bottom-line is that these school administrators are morons. There is NO reason to believe that this child was trying to commit an act of Sexual Harassment. There is NO reason to believe that any child at the age of 5 is old enough to understand what Sexual Harassment is.

But, leave it to a Government institution to label a 5-year-old as a sexual predator.

The truly infuriating part of this story comes at the end of the article:

“During the 2005-06 school year, 28 kindergarten students in Maryland were suspended for sex offenses, including sexual assault, sexual harassment and sexual activity, according to state data. Fifteen of those suspensions were for sexual harassment.”

This isn’t the first. And, it definitely won’t be the last.
