RI school to alter policy that banned soldier hat

There are 1 comment on the Connecticut Post story from Jun 22, 2010, titled RI school to alter policy that banned soldier hat. In it, Connecticut Post reports that:

Lt. Gen. Reginald Centracchio, adjutant general emeritus of the Rhode Island National Guard, left, presents David Morales, 8, from Coventry, R.I., with a challenge coin during an appearance on WPRO-AM's John DePetro radio show in East Providence, R.I., Friday, June 18, 2010.

Maybe Coventry School District superintendent Di Pietro, the Coventry School District Board and school officials (all responsible forthis farce) should read their own Policy Manual. I found the manual on the District's web site. Following are some its goals/policies:

"We should provide students with a knowledge of their rights and responsibilities.

• Education is a process of questioning, experimenting and problem solving to arrive at the nature of truth.

• The school experience is a catalyst in aiding the student in establishing a value system to live within an ever changing society.

It is the schools responsibility to provide the environment for positive academic, physical, social, emotional and aesthetic growth of our students.

• A school culture, which embraces diversity, change, risk-taking, and shared decision-making, is the catalyst for change.

• Schools must be safe, nurturing environments for learning where norms of genuine respect are shared by all members of the school community.

• Recognize different learning styles and degrees for learning.

• Support individual and cultural diversity.

• Develop and empower the mind, body and spirit."

So much for respecting a second grader's opinions and his respect of service men and women.
