If you still think there might be sane people somewhere involved with public education, consider this.
In the North Lebanon, Pennsylvania, school district, the school policy is that students must smile in the hallway or else be put into “counseling”–and if that doesn’t work, detention (http://pittsburgh.cbslocal.com/2018/05/16/school-students-required-smile/).
“Northern Lebanon officials,” says the news report from Pittsburgh, “did not explain what the purpose of the smiling policy was or what it is supposed to achieve.”
Kowabunga. R.J. Rushdoony would say its purpose is to enforce conformity and assert its power. I’d say he was right. Otherwise it’s just plain craziness. We can’t rule that out.
Really, people–do you want your children and grandchildren “educated” by these kooks?
If you walk around grinning all the time, don’t answer that.
