Is This School Sending a Dangerous Message With Its Valentine’s Dance Rule? [POLL]
An elementary school in Utah has a policy for its Valentine's Day dance: If students are asked to the dance, they can't say no.
The school says its meant to teach kids to be inclusive, respectful and polite.
But a mom is upset with this policy because it teaches students not to say no, which is the wrong lesson.
It sends girls the message that they have to say "yes," and sends a bad message to boys that girls can't say "no."
Having a sixth-grade girl, I would be upset as well if this were her school's policy. Not only does it send the wrong message to both girls & boys, but what if she has a creepy kid who is obsessed her? Is she forced to say yes to this kid?
