Let me first express my distaste for newspapers. I loathe them. I've always disliked them, and here are three reasons why.
1. I've never been able to turn the pages successfully.
2. I'm allergic to the ink.
3. They smell funny.
That being said, I read a newspaper today. I was in search of a specific article. During my unpleasant inky exodus I came across a disturbing fact.
The State Department of Education apparently decided to display their all out distaste for children, and all that is good and right, by sending out the following decree. Partial school days have been banned!!!
You heard me right. Those days we LIVED FOR! Pep rallies. Parades. Anything they'd allow us to attend. It's what kept us going! Partial school days were the solitary reason we trudged along, doing as we were told and never(almost) questioning authority.
This new rule eliminates dismissing school early on the last day before Christmas and Spring Break. What's wrong with these people?! Have they no decency?!
If you thought violence in schools was a problem before. Just wait until this gets into full swing. These little punks are gonna be packin' heat now.
