    Default Gotta boogy, but before I go...

    thought I'd pass on something happening in Awnooold Land. Surprised some of our Cawleefooornyan RTFers didn't wanna share this with Y'all.

    Ya gotta believe the PC crowd is fumin' eh?


    This is the message that the Pacific Palisades High School (California) staff voted unanimously to record on their school telephone answering machine. This is the actual answering machine message for the school. This came about because they implemented a policy requiring students and parents to be responsible for their children's absences and missing homework. The school and teachers are being sued by parents who want their children's failing grades changed to passing grades - even though those children were absent 15-30 times during the semester and did not complete enough schoolwork to pass their classes.

    The outgoing message:

    "Hello! You have reached the automated answering service of your school. In order to assist you in connecting to the right staff member, please listen to all the options before making a selection:

    * To lie about why your child is absent - Press 1

    * To make excuses for why your child did not do his work - Press 2

    * To complain about what we do - Press 3

    &n bsp;&n bsp; * To swear at staff members - Press 4

    * To ask why you didn't get information that was already enclosed in your newsletter and several flyers mailed to you - Press 5

    * If you want us to raise your child - Press 6

    * If you want to reach out and touch, slap or hit someone - Press 7

    * To request another teacher, for the third time this year - Press 8

    * To complain about bus transportation - Press 9

    * To complain about school lunches - Press 0

    * If you realize this is the real world and your child must be accountable and responsible for his/her own behavior, class work, homework and that it's not the teachers' fault for your child's lack of effort:

    Hang up and have a nice day!

    *If you want this in Spanish, you must be in the wrong country.
    When the one you love becomes a memory, that memory becomes a treasure.

    Is that for real???

    If so I LOVE IT!!!! Political correctness and the wuss-ifying of America being pushed down our throat by the liberal left will result in the downfall of this, once great nation. Why can't people take any personal responsibility and mind their own business...instead of trying to legislate or regulate everything??? HR 1022 comes to mind.

    All I have to do is read something like that to remember why I got out of teaching a long, long time ago.

    No way the School District lawyers would allow that. Do you have a source?

    Oops, more stuff someone believed because it was in writing, and paralleled their politics.
