Going Nuclear

| 2 Comments

Some parents of kids at Worthington Elementary School, in Inglewood, California, are more than bewildered by the principal's decision to impose a high-level lockdown during the region's student walkouts protesting immigration legislation. Restrictions were so severe that some Worthington students, who did not participate in the walkouts, were prohibited from accessing restrooms, and had to use buckets placed in classrooms instead. If such a precaution seems extreme, that's because it was. The principal, Angie Marquez, had apparently misread the district's handbook and ordered the wrong kind of lockdown. Inglewood district officials say it was an honest mistake. "When there's a nuclear attack, that's when the buckets are used," affirmed Tim Brown, district director of operations.

I am a teacher in the Inglewood District, but not at Worthington Elementary School. Tim Brown can say whatever he wants about nuclear attacks, but the policy is, when we are in lock down, no one leaves the clasroom.

Last year a different Inglewood elementary school had a lockdown DRILL that lasted for 4-5 hours. Kids were going to the bathroom in trash cans that time too.

That is disgusting. All these policies for school lockdowns is big brother to the max. The Government's agencies and FEMA are the terrorists. Our civil liberties are their target. Wake up. Cancel all these new nonsense protocols before it is too late.
