Dominica: Dominican Schools issued an advisory for the parents to check the bags of children before they leave for school. The principal claimed it was a serious matter.
He talked about the sharp objects which are found in the bags of students. He said the children are even caught threatening others, that they will kill them.
He said that the matter is such a concern that it can even be taken to the police. However, the solution they declared is that the parents have to check their wards’ bags.
“No, we don’t have to involve the police in all those things, we have to search our children’s bags before they leave home in the mornings,” said the principal.
He highlighted the negligence of parents on this. Even if they are called to schools, the way they behave is so insane that the call becomes more like a regret. This can even be witnessed from the public opinion they posted under the shared post.
“Them parents need to do better!!
I am a crazy one!!!!!! No matter the child age!,” one commented.
“That is the culture,” another said.
“They can go on the Gaza if is war they ready for,” some other said.
Such responses by the parents are even hard to imagine. The principal even noted, there is much going on in Granby. So many illegal activities have been observed. Instead of all the witnesses, they have to keep their mouths shut.
However, when something serious happens, people and parents are the most quick to post the incidents against schools.
The question arises, Why don’t parents think about their responsibility towards their children. And, this cannot even be justified by simply mentioning it about culture.
The principal also emphasized that when any such case arises in the school. The school authority needs to be informed. All the actions will be taken by them. But the parents, friends and even Granby people start sharing it.
Notably, he added that every year many dropouts are done in secondary schools. Most from them are boys.
“Where are they when they drop out from school.” said the principal.
