Teach Your Children Well But Don’t Terrorize Them, Please

Apparently nobody saw this one coming:

GOLDSBORO (WTVD) — Eastern Wayne Middle School students were terrified when they were told there was an armed robber in the school with a mask and a handgun Friday. However, they quickly learned it was all part of a school lesson.

Nonetheless, some parents are not happy with the exercise and school officials admit it was a bad move.

In a letter that was sent home to parents, the school said it was part of enrichment exercise trying to teach kids to be aware of their surroundings. A school employee dressed up in a ski mask and carrying a fake gun pretended to be a robber.

The school system admits – in light of the school shootings making headlines around the country – they should have been more sensitive.

GEE, YA THINK??!! Morons.

    Sensitivity seems to be a depreciated value among school officials these days.

    Wow. Just…wow.

    Lucky to be alive in most places. In Florida, a bathing suit and sunscreen oil would be considered proper attire. I believe this is what is known as “awareness of one’s surroundings.”

  4. And if NRA members had their way, one of the janitors carrying his concealed weapon would have put several extra holes in that ski mask.

  5. I’m going with this wasn’t just a stupid mistake. It was a calculated effort to indoctrinate school-age children in the sacred ways of concealed carry. Not to mention the entire stunt is criminally irresponsible. What the fuck is going on in wingnut craniums these days? Thinking maybe its time for the principal to retire.

  6. I’m a parent of one of these kids? I’ll be sending that counseling bill to the school. Like adolescence isn’t already high drama enough. Maybe that’s how NRA gets defanged. Class action suits for PTSD treatment. Drain the coffers.

      This is probably why the GOP governors have been so hot to pass “tort reform.”
