Parents Outraged By New Sign School Posted

A sign in a school in Little Rock, Arkansas has stirred some controversy. Parents seem to be split on their opinion of the sign, and of the policy to which it refers. Now a photo of the sign is circulating on Facebook, and others are throwing in their two cents.

The sign is displayed in the window of Little Rock’s Catholic High School for Boys. Teachers and administrators had become frustrated by parents coming to the school every day to drop off items their sons had forgotten to take with them. The policy was enacted, and the sign was put in place to inform parents.

The sign reads: “If you are dropping off your son’s forgotten lunch, books, homework, equipment, etc., please turn around and exit the building. Your son will learn to problem-solve in your absence.”

The notice has gotten mixed reactions, both from parents of boys in the school to Facebook users who came across it in a post.

On one side, people are praising the sign. They're in favor of a little 'tough love,' and lessons that will help teach a child to be more responsible.

“This is all about teaching young men (high schoolers are not children) to become responsible adult men and spouses and fathers through allowing soft failures,” wrote one parent.

Other parents against the sign feel it discriminates against students with ADHD and other challenges. Being punished for being forgetful is not the way to go, particularly for children who have certain health conditions and can't afford to go the whole day without lunch.

As the post is being passed around, the debate rages on.
