    Uh, no. I'm asking you whether or not school officials are given some discretion in the activities of their students.

    Do coaches need to ask a parent's permission to do every little thing?

    Or it's modeled after an authoritarian patriarchal social construct, depending on your perspective, that is.

    That is what the term means, don't try and twist it. It can also mean casual dining or fixed prices or how seating plan is laid out too... As to the rest of that pure and utter crap regarding what I refer as a "family unit"? Don't make me laugh with that retarded ad hominem
    Ad hom!? How am I insulting you?

    I was just demonstrating the absurdity of being ultra-sensitive towards every fringe societal element.

    pretty much... yes. i always have. most teachers/coaches that I have known do. It is not that big of a deal, it is a legal responsibility, it is polite, it safeguards potential issues like nut allergies, etc. do they need to ask if they can drive in the fast lane... no. Do they need to ask to take students to Hooters? yes.

    A family, kid friendly restaurant is modeled after an authoritarian patriarchal social construct? WTF? Are you serious? Perhaps you can explain this theory then... I am listening.

    Ad hom!? How am I insulting you?
    With your description of how you apparently think that I view family structure, that's how. That was ridiculous. am I upset, no. Am I thinking WTF is with that? Yes...

    I was just demonstrating the absurdity of being ultra-sensitive towards every fringe societal element.
    I think that you use to many absolutes... unless you can demonstrate how I am being ultra-sensitive about anything, let alone this issue in particular.

    Yes, Redress....we COULD allow parents to micromanage every decision that a school makes. Perhaps we should send lesson plans home every night to get approval from the parents for each class. We should send a school lunch menu home the week before, just in case a parent has a complaint that needs to be address. We should clear every song a band or choir sings with the parents beforehand so as not to offend anyone's sensibilities.
    Yes...Redress you are right....parents should make every decision for the school.
    In my town they send home school lunch menus a month in advance. Bet that makes you dizzy huh?

    Yeah I remember when they did that! When...I was in elementary school. And my when my sister was in elementary school.


    Most schools I've been to recently or had friends attend, they posted the lunches online through the school newsletter.

    I understand and agree that there are some decisions that parents should make, but you have to be reasonable. Deciding every step that the school makes and every restaurant that a student eats in is not reasonable.
    Asking for notification is not micromanaging the school. That is being given information to make a decision about your own children.

    They still do it here and in my town? Can you believe they still do not post a lot of this stuff online? No menu, homework, lessonplans, etc. They do post school calendar, testing dates, contact info for teachers. But they are kinda behind in reguards to what info they put on the website.

    That is all it is... information about what is happening to your child. Easy as that.

    Not at all...the fact that they do is fine. However, you would mandate that a school HAD to do that just in case a parent wants to complain?
    Should schools have teachers send home school plans nightly so as to not offend a parent with hyper-sensitive sensibilities?
