Grandpa, didn’t there used to be this thing called Western civilization?

There’s just no limit to what “educators” can come up with when they’re dreaming up incredibly stupid ideas.

Why any parents would want to subject their children to “school officials” is well beyond me. Could it be nothing more than a really bad habit?
