  •  Do parents even care about education? (0+ / 0-)

    Because complaining about a badge is about the most waste of time there is.  Does the school provide an education?  Does the school provide a safe space?  These are the question parents should be asking.  Not if a badge is required. This is why our education system is being destroyed.  Because people are more focused and random superficial crap than deliverables.

    Making such judgements is going to be an ongoing situation in this students life, and rather than compromise, the student is being taught to use jurisprudence.  Is this kid going to accept a well paying job in which a badge is required and then sue the firm?  

    The issue here is a good free education.  There are bigger impediments to this.  Like kids being expelled from school because they are a bit loud.  Or sending kids home because they were not able to wash clothes.  Or not training the kids with the basic skills the will need in the workplace, like getting there on time, not using the phone during work hours, following rules that may be annoying but at the end of the day don't make a difference.  Like maybe making a second account of facebook to give to nosy employers, though i think employers who want this are probably not the employers to work for unless on is desperate.

    Which really is the issue.  Are these kids being educated to the level that they will not have a choice of where to work, or are they so busy filing lawsuits that they will not be maximally educated and have to work for shit boss.
