WEB Notes: Quote from the article,
“I am requesting the freedom, which is my parental right, to walk my children home from school at the time of dismissal,” said Lindsey Simmons, who was next to appear at the podium.”
If she acknowledges it is her right, why is she requesting freedom to do so? Where is common sense? Watch the video to see the schools policy which says car riders have to leave first before the mother can pickup her child. How ridiculous. This lady should put up the biggest fight she can and then if she looses pull her child from that school and the other parents should join her.
Some parents in the Magnolia Independent School District say their elementary school is violating federal law by stopping them from walking their children home from school. Mothers who were recently threatened with trespassing charges told the school board on Monday night that they expect the district to make immediate changes.
“My parental rights are being violated,” Heather Burke told Magnolia ISD trustees on Monday night. “The district is saying that they have authority over my children.”
