  • saw the video of mom who pulled kids out of school for this and I think she is right. The school is wrong and I would not want my kids in that school.
    The kids will see and learn on how the parents act and they better protest to show the school is wrong.

  • That is just so sick...and backward and ignorant. Isn't it illegal to discrimnate on the basis of race? And haven't people grown and learned and matured at all ???

  • It is on a rotation? (I am not saying it is right) but I was reading that this was intended to keep it from turning into what it has.. I am getting, that to prevent a white kid from getting president every year they did a rotation to be fair to minorities. Am I misreading this?

    I can see how they thought it was a good idea, if I am reading it right... but I think it should be any child can run. I am sure if a white kid won every year someones parents would throw a fit but they would have a better chance in court against that than this. I think it is terribly sad that this school was so afraid of a law suit that they even started this rotation... And I am really shocked that this is the first time someone is not okay with it....
