What is the take on the new principle? I for one think she is a nice person but also think she is trying to run this school like a military school or something, I mean making the kids answer with a yes mam and no mam or they get in trouble. Yes, it shows respect when you answer a question like that but the kids getting in trouble is a little rediculous. Also making the kids walk with their hands behind their backs is rediculous too. Other than that I think she is doing a good job so far.

The respectful response to an adult is a problem?????????? That attitude is part of the problem these days. Take it from "Customer Service" to the response to a question from an authority figure. What is wrong with it? Attitudes that find a problem with common courtesy? You should be ashamed of your children if you don't teach them respect.

Please teach your children not to be respectful. There are many jobs that don't require you to show any respect for those over you. All high paying and important jobs, I'm sure. It is obvious that the US has WAY too many courteous folks. If your parents gave these values to you, they should have had someone slap their face. If you pass these values to your children, you are assuring them of their future. Is there any occasion when courtesy is not appropriate? Even when someone is verbally assaulting you, common courtesy is a grat way to de-escalate a situation.

Most decent people would be appalled at your attitude about the new rules. Anyone who has a problem with this, should be very, very ashamed.

My child does answer in that manor, I never said I was against the new rule, I just don't think they should get in trouble for not answering in that manor. Stop and think, some parents don't teach their children to be respectful like this and those children now have a rule at school where they have to and let's be honest children sometimes forget new thing and have to be reminded of them until they get in the routine of things.

Everyone is very encouraged by your last post. It displays an ignorance which gives us comfort that there will be those, in the future, to shine my shoes, carry my bags, haul my trash, and mow my yard. Children at school should get more than "Book lernin." Social behaviour and the means to make a living are skills one learns at school. The attitude of people like this, and this demonstration of education, reaffirm the actions of this school administrator.
I don't know one thing about this administrator. Didn't even know that there was a new Elem. School Principal, but I respect him/her. If for no other reason than that he/she is a Principal. I may not like, or agree with all her policies. I may even choose to argue with her over some things, but these policies are a positive start for ANY child.

I guess some people are just too ignorant to read between the lines. In other words ( give the kids that are not use to answering in this manner) a little time to get used to the new rule before they start getting in trouble over this, maybe try to remind them or something like that then if they still don't answer the way they are suppose to then they get in trouble. Why would you down the people that carry luggag, pick up trash, and mow yards? I mean if no one picked up the trash then it would just be piled up everywhere!

How are the parents the worst thing in schools? I thought parents were supposed to help their children in school, I know my parents helped me and I help my children with school work.

If anyone would like to know what the ridiculous rules this new principal is imposing on our children read "The Essential 55" and the rules for the teachers read "The Essential 11" both by Ron Clark. These are not the schools rules these are her rules. Some of them are ok, but some of these rules are not her business or place to make a rule at school (for example: Rule #41 When you are at your home you must answer the phone in an appropriate manner.)

The point is she does not have the right to make rules at school that apply to a childs home

Parents and the govorment have taken controle away from the school systems to where the kids are out of control. They dont listen, do what ever they please and then tell the teacher.. "what are you going to do about it?" Students answering with respect or getting in trouble...."WAy to go!" and the walking with their hands behind them is great. Because the first time one of them hit another kid then you have a whole new set of grips.So hands behind them keep hands to them selves.

"The Essential 55" is supposed to be life skill lessons NOT rules, some parents are taking this matter to the school board. If this matter is not taken care of Cooper ISD will be nine students short (so far) for the school year 2012-2013.

I completely agree and this is the way that I raise my children with respect but don't tell my kids that they cannot have doritos and that I have to answer the phone at my own house, that I pay the bill for (not the principal), HOW TO ANSWER IT....

Why would the Wilsons be against children being mannerly?

That is ridiculous.

Is not the "Wilson's" that are against a child having manners! It's a lot of parents that have a problem with the new principle enforcing "The Essential 55" as rules when they are life skill lessons. If she would teach theses as life skills instead of rules I don't think any parent would have a problem with it. Just asking, but have you (what) even read the new 55 rules?
