ATTLEBORO, Mass. (MyFoxBoston.com) – It seem that butter knives are just to dangerous in the hands of school age children who don’t know better. But then recently in the light of political correctness, other stories have boiled to the surface of our modern asylum. Stories of the boy who got in trouble for throwing imaginary hand-grenades, killing imaginary villains of the world; because he thought of himself while playing an imaginary game of the mind, as imaginary super hero saving the world. Are we now killing the inspiration of any future super hero, who may also see the need and have the willingness to save us from ourselves?
Boy, 7, suspended from school for throwing imaginary hand grenade http://blog.sfgate.com/sfmoms/2013/02/06/boy-7-suspended-from-school-for-throwing-imaginary-hand-grenade/
Have we forgotten that schools back in the olden days taught to imagine, to dream, innovate, invent, while providing inspiration, and encourage students who would guide us all into the future? All sorts of modern products and devices were the result of such an education. Schools should then be dreamland’s of sorts, visionary zones?
Instead we have transformed them to become prisons of insanity, devoid of freely promoting common sense, critical thought, and to dream big or go home. The creed of winners! Isn’t that the way to preparation for a changing future?
We should teach to impress, to create an excitement of learning in students, over the false education that these schools of modern age now teach. Today we paralyze critical thinking through the magnification of present dangers, like those butter knives, and imaginary hand-grenades. We inspire as well teach kids to trust teachers and administrators or other government employees, over even their own parents, by confiscating lunches; declaring them not healthy, uneatable, as if loving parents don’t really care? Lessens that certainly can imprint all sorts of fear in the minds of our youth today.
ATTLEBORO, Mass. (MyFoxBoston.com) – From a toy gun to a butter knife, a new controversy has arisen over an item a student brought to a local school Wednesday.
Morgan LaPlaume, a Wamsutta Middle School student, was simply trying to cut her fruit for lunch because she has braces and can’t take bites out of whole fruit, says the LaPlaume family.
During lunch, the vice principal happened to be walking by when he reportedly saw Morgan with the butter knife, took her to his office, and issued her a suspension.
In the land that gave birth of unlimited imagination, the creed of being “all that you can be”, as well as inspirational entertainments delivering new dreams, imaginations, through the stories of “Super Man” and others,( where good always triumphs over evil). Why do our teachers seem to be behind the learning curve? It seems that only in the specialized education systems of teaching the handicap; is where teachers are still teaching the lessons of self-reliance, the can-do-attitude, supporting efforts through inspiration of overcoming obstacles?
Today we create insurmountable walls out of false standards and the fear of bad lunches, butter knives, and the free will to imagine. We have allowed the evil change to take place, of what we once was thought our teachers were, ” the Supper men and women” of education. But now, allowing them to be transformed into the “JOKERS” of the day!
