It’s All Fun and Games as a Wisconsin School Gets Kids to Snitch on Parents

From Colorado to Wisconsin -

It seems that, even when a school system can proclaim itself 'proud American' (Fort Collins HS in Colorado gave up the ghost of its denial of 'American Day' for the student body) the actions of another speak even louder:

The game is called “Cross the Line” and many outraged parents believe that it does just that.

A middle school in Marinette, Wisconsin got a group of 5th-8th graders together and organized a really fun game that asked students to step forward to answer “yes” to a series of highly personal questions. Questions like…

Do your parents drink?

Do you cut yourself?

Has anyone in your family been to jail?

Have you ever wanted to commit suicide?

Do you or your parents do drugs?

Unbelievably, school administrators believed that this “game” would help the kids to be better and kinder friends. “The intent of this activity was to build stronger, more respectful relationships among students,” said Principal Shawn Limberg. The “game” was part of an anti-bullying program.

Of course, Limberg also said the “game” was completely voluntary, an assertion that was disputed by one young girl who told her mother she’d have to go to in-school suspension if she didn’t participate.

Several parents voiced their concerns and had them brushed off. Amanda Fifarek, mother of a 7th grade student, told FOX 11, “They basically told us that all the students were lying…all the students got together and planned it out and if they weren’t lying, it was all misperceptions. They didn’t specifically say do your parents do drugs.”

Of course. We all know those silly children must have just misunderstood the whole thing.

Here’s the report from the local Fox station:

Cross the Line Game at Marinette Middle School

Reading between the lines, it doesn’t look as though Marinette Middle School was duly chastised. It sounds like they every intention of playing the “game” again. According to a Yahoo news report, ”Principal Limberg said they will let parents know the next time they plan on playing this game.”

What surprises me is how suddenly Common Core got into the schools.  There really was no national debate beforehand...

We need vouchers. Then the taxpayers would get rebates and better educated kids!

Agreed, Chalice. This 'progressive' agenda to replace what has been with what does not work to further the goals of the educational process is scary, to say the least. The states relinquish the control they are accountable for, and allow the federal government to take the place of localized responsibility, and are never held accountable for the inherent failure of the centralized architecture that brings no result save the diminishing of our freedoms and our pocketbooks.

Everywhere we look, the schools are pushing socialism... It is subtle and it is blatant.  The Federal Government has no business in education.  This is entirely a State issue.
