New England Elementary School Bans Parents From Visiting Their Kids During Lunch
According to NBC news, in Darien, Connecticut, the parents have become accustomed to popping into the elementary schools to check in on their children during lunch.
The superintendent released a statement prohibiting visits from parents/guardians. The visits were labeled distracting and counter productive for the children. The children are there to learn how to socialize with each other and throwing a parent in there drastically changes the dynamic.
The parents are not taking the news so well. Parents are saying that they chose the town because of it's high-performing public schools. They should be allowed to be as involved in their child's education as they want to be even if that means at school visits.
I can't remember this ever being a thing growing up. The only time I would see someones mom or dad was on career day or when it was their birthday and they were bringing in cupcakes for the class. Don't these parents have work? I guess not!
