Boy Punished For Calling Teacher “Ma’am” And A Mother Was Investigated For Letting Her 8-Year-Old Walk The Dog
Boy Punished For Calling Teacher “Ma’am” And A Mother Was Investigated For Letting Her 8-Year-Old Walk The Dog by Michael Snyder – The Economic Collapse Blog
Is America going completely and utterly insane? Every day we get even more evidence that this country is going downhill really fast. I am about to share with you some stories that deeply upset me, but it isn’t because anyone died. Rather, these stories demonstrate that the America that so many of us once loved is dying. Liberty and freedom are being eroded with each passing day, and we are rapidly becoming a European-style socialist state in which control freaks micromanage even the smallest details of our lives. Even our speech is being heavily micromanaged, and anyone that gets out of line is likely to be cracked down upon really hard. At this point, things have already gotten so bad that it is getting really difficult to determine what is safe to say and what isn’t safe to say. For example, a 10-year-old boy in North Carolina just made national news because he was punished for calling his teacher “ma’am”…
A 10-year-old boy in North Carolina was punished last week for referring to his female teacher as “ma’am.” The incident left his parents both concerned and confused, they told WTVD-TV.
Teretha Wilson noticed her son, Tamarion, seemed upset after leaving the bus Aug. 21 from his school in the town of Tarboro, she told the station. “I asked him what happened. He said he got in trouble for saying ‘yes ma’am’,” Wilson told WTVD’s Michael Perchick.
Are you kidding me?
If you can get kids to use “sir” and “ma’am” in this day and age it is actually a great accomplishment. But apparently “ma’am” was not this particular teacher’s “preferred title”, and she insisted that little Tamarion quit using it.
And to make her point, she forced Tamarion to write out the world “ma’am” dozens of times on a piece of paper…
Tamarion showed her a piece of paper with the word “ma’am” written dozens of times by hand, four times on every line, Wilson said. The boy said his teacher made him write it because he continued to call her “ma’am” after she asked him not to, the mother told WTVD.
This is just another indication of how pathetic our public schools have become. In recent years we have witnessed a homeschooling boom all over the nation as parents have pulled their kids out of the public school system in record numbers…
In 2017, the U.S. Department of Education estimated that 1.69 million kids between the ages of 5 and 17 were homeschooled, based on spring 2016 numbers. And that data comes just from the 15 states that track homeschooling, as well as Maricopa County, Arizona (Phoenix).
As strange as that first story was, this next one is even stranger.
