To see just how far this nation has fallen consider what happened Feb. 26 at Como Park High School in St. Paul, Minn.
A science experiment set off a fire alarm and the school was evacuated. Fourteen-year-old Kayona Hagan-Tietz was swimming in health class and, unlike her classmates, did not have time to change into dry clothes. She was made to leave the building with just her wet swimsuit and a towel.
It was 5 below zero with a wind chill of 25 below. She stayed wet and near naked in those conditions for 10 minutes, according to the CBS affiliate. Her classmates huddled around her trying to keep her warm. The faculty, like good Germans, feared to throw away the handbook and do the right thing. One eventually did give her a jacket. Finally, permission was obtained for her to sit in a teacher’s car.
Note, after 10 minutes.
How long would you let a near-naked, wet child outside in below zero weather?
To really make you sick go here and read the comments by teachers defending the school’s lack of response.
Parents need the power to fire schools.

This nation needs to find its backbone.
We must stop putting people like the Como Park faculty on pedestals and start holding them in contempt
