What is wrong with people…. They teach 4th graders to use bad words…. Force them to…. UGH…. Fire who ever thought this was a good idea!
MANCHESTER, N.H. – An intense lesson on bullying left fourth grade children scared and parent furious.
According to parent Keith Katsikas, Hallsville Elementary School Principal Christi Michaud arranged for a bullying lesson to be conducted by Laurie Evans, a guidance counselor at Webster Elementary, also in the Manchester, New Hampshire school district.
The father explains it this way:
The woman proceeded to setup her display: a life-size paper man that she taped to the wall, a small blue basket, and a handful of paper clippings.
The woman passed out the small pieces of paper to the class and told the young children that they had to write down a swear word (or phrase). It had to be a swear word and it had to be something that someone has said to them in the past. She then collected the pieces of paper from the students into her blue basket and mixed them up.
