It's hard to believe how badly the definition of 'safe' has been warped.

The absolute atrocity!

Independence should be encouraged. Having an adult helper would essentially negate that concept for her to an extent.

Another article I found. Think it's a bit more reliable.

Ah that's a bit better. I agree that the independence is important. So they want her to use a shorter cane because of the 'danger'.

Still shit on the school's part.

I tried to facepalm hard enough. Currently going to hospital for reconstructive facial surgery.

Well that's just dumb. I imagine they thought other kids would take it and hit each other with it or something.

Still though...it's a walking cane...

Well in fairness, she could have caused a massacre with that walking cane, kids limbs lopped off, possible decapitations if she also had ninja skills, you just don't know...........

I am so glad I'm an adult. All the shit I did growing up. I'd be in jail. I mean, I hug a kid, I kissed a boy on the cheek, I "ran" into the boy I like, I called people names when they were mean to me, I ran around with scissors, etc. Shit now will get you written up! Its like the school administration and staff are run by an organization that wants to suck out any happiness and enjoyment of school.
