School security going too far
Once again, dirtboysmom here.
I just watched a tv news segment about a school system in NY state which does not allow students to carry backpacks or purses during the school day for "security" reasons
Apparently, earlier this week a girl carrying purses was pulled out of class and questioned a school security guard about whether or not they she was having her period, in which case she would be allowed to carry a purse to class.
This is absolutely ridiculous, making young women advertise the fact that they are having their period by allowing them to carry purses only during that time of the month.
I applaud the students who started a protest against this invasion of privacy.
I have truly begun to fear for our country and our childlren's future as we have gone totally overboard in attempts to keep everyone safe from everything: RealID, shoes off at airports, etc., etc., etc. It can't be done. Let's spend our money on providing health care to those without insurance. And now I will climb down off my soapbox.
