Term “best friend” banned from schools for lacking “inclusivity”

It’s 2018 and the latest cause du jour for educrats is banning students from having best friends.

A recent Metro article notes the term best friend isn’t allowed in some schools anymore because it lacks “inclusivity”.

Isn’t the whole concept of a best friend something that should lack inclusivity?

A growing number of schools are encouraging children to have lots of “good” friends and discouraging them from having “best” friends because educrats and child psychologists favour the idea even though it’s not popular in the real world.

But what do we, the great unwashed masses, know about raising kids?

For a social-engineering encore, earlier this month a school in Utah told students they couldn’t say “no” if another student asked them to dance at the Valentine’s Day event.

Talk about mixed messages! For decades, we’ve been told that a woman has the right to choose, and that “no means no” but not any more.

Will this bring #MeToo and #TimesUp to a grinding halt? Pass the popcorn! I think we’re witnessing a circus sideshow of progressives cannibalizing themselves.

So happy my tax dollars are paying for this, Not !!
Why is it that all of the public sector is destroying the way of life that affords their prospeirity ?
Parents with any sense would either home school or have them attend private school ,if they could afford it honestly though how can they afford not to .

Parents should just tell their kids that sometimes the way you do things at school and the way you do things at home are two different ways.
