Remember When Principal Holly Ray Said PARENTS WILL BE ARRESTED for Walking Kids TO OR FROM SCHOOL: [UPDATE]
You’re familiar with the phrase; “You can’t fight City Hall”? .. Well, hold on there just a momento – because here’s a success story in the Age of Trump. But first, we have to go back… waaaaay back to the pre-Trump era.
Back when no one had a say except unamed, unelected, unliked – yet powerful, bureacrats who think they know better how to raise your children. Take one Principal Holly Ray, for example. Like I said – back before President Trump stepped into the Oval Office:
Already well known to be an overbearing administrator, Holly Ray removed the school bike rack at Bear Branch Elementary School, and made a new rule at the beginning of the school year and reinforced it in March.
Kids: The only way you can get to and from school is in a car or bus! Parents stay in your car! Holly Ray demands!
No more walking, even with a parent, and absolutely no bike riding! AND… Parents are not allowed to even walk on campus with their kids! The are demanded to stay in the car!
Not only is she an overbearing administrator, trampling on parental rights, Holly Ray was BREAKING Federal Law! That was full reason for termination!
But faster than you can say, “Lunch LadyLand!”
UPDATE: We received an E-Mail response from the Superintendent
“RaymondDidn’t think you sounded like a native Texas… I am afraid your a victim of media hyperbole. “
THAT was it! Ad-Hominen and bad grammar? Really?
Parents say that not only are students leaving because of it, but teachers and staff are leaving the as well! Yet the District is standing behind her! INSANE!
It is high time we took our schools back!
Of course this ridiculous situation was reversed since, but not before an outcry from parents – here’s a typical example:
Mom speaks out at Magnolia School Board meeting about having Constable show up at her house after walking her child home.
Fox26Houston REPORTED AT THE TIME:
“She’s threatening to arrest people,” says Wendy Jarman about principal, Holly Ray.
“This has happened to many parents,” Jarman says. “They have been cited. They have been threatened, if they step one foot on school property, they will be arrested and charged with who knows what.”
Frank Young has one of those warnings. He also lives close to the school and he also pulled his children out of it. Young says no effort to negotiate a better policy or even hundreds of signatures on a petition got the district to change the policy or bully tactics.
“Mrs. Ray’s policy is implying that a parent doesn’t have the ability or capability to decide what is safest for her children and that the school district does,” Young says. “I disagree.”
The school district responded to Fox26Houston’s request for comment with a statement fully supporting Principal Ray, saying the goal is a safe dismissal process. Holly Ray OBVIOUSLY is ignorant on history as well!
Breitbart Texas spoke to community members and obtained a recent dismissal process reminder letter in which Ray threatened parents and guardians with truancy classes and even, doling out In-School Suspension (ISS), a punishment that elementary school-age children could potentially serve because their parents break the pickup rules.”
