Alabama school stamps a boy’s arm with a message for his dad who goes crazy
More often than not, it appears that guardians are the one that make a big hullabaloo and fuss over school policies that do not suit their lifestyle. However, the situation can sometime take a turn where some schools do formulate absurd rules that rub parents the wrong way. Every parent wants best for their child so it shouldn’t be a surprise when parents act the way they do in certain conflicting circumstances.
Jon Bivens from Alabama reacted very strongly and was livid when he found his son’s arm stamped by the school with the message “I need lunch money’. This was definitely a policy that could traumatize a child. No school has any right to insult or perform a punishment that seeks to insult a child. But although it is against the law, certain teachers in school just can’t seem to help themselves in humiliating children. Jon’s son was just in the third grade and it could have severe traumatic recuperssions for the child.
1 Humiliating policy for children
Most schools follow an account policy for children to get lunch at school. When a child’s account is low, the parent is notified to make a deposit and the process is usually a formal but polite one. But this school in particular and like some others too are actually stamping children’s arms with the statement “I Need lunch money” This is deplorable and unbecoming of a school. The stamp is like an insult and demeaning to the child when he is stamped in front of his peers. It can be extremely traumatic and humiliating.
When Jon Biven’s son’s arm was stamped, it even had a smiley face on it. Did the school actually think a smiley neutralizes such a gesture? That stamp in case most schools don’t know has opened up a room for bullies to take over.
