Why parent your child when the school will do it for you?

Call me crazy but I don't think its the School's job to check your child for cavities, hearing, lice, vision, scoliosis, give them pregnancy tests, birth control, vaccines, what they can pack in their lunch (not talking about allergy items) or any of that stuff.


That is YOUR job as THEIR parent. Not the schools job. I find it very odd that schools do these things, especially because there are already programs in place for children who are poor. 

When did it become the schools job to do these things?

I agree. If I could afford the 2k a month for private school I would.

Probably because NOT all parents will do it, know to do it or how to do it.  Safe then sorry. I have no problem with the testing. I had to do it in school. The eating.... yes. MIND YOUR OWN, or buy my groceries, (Also not talking about alergy stuff)

Do they allow you personally to opt out?

Sorry I hit anon by accident. I like to think I am in between. I expect a decent amount if responsibility on the schools end but agree with you my kid, my job.
