Claiming it was a “safety policy,” California elementary public school principal Dana Carter instituted a policy that required his students to “kneel down on one knee and wait for the principal or another administrator to dismiss them.” One parent claimed that her daughter was forced to kneel before the principal “like a king” with her hands at her side until Carter came out, lifted his arms, and told students to go to class.
Apparently, this happened at various times throughout the school day.
Complaints from parents, including flyers placed on cars, resulted in the revocation of the policy. Calls went out to parents to inform them of the change of policy, and Carter has already scheduled a meeting with parents to discuss “different safety options” with parents.
