Kind of like that guy that got arrested at a school board meeting for asking about the school's decision to use "common core". They charged him with assaulting a police officer. Funny, its looks like the other way around.

Same here... My mom went through all the child protective services crap when I was a kid. They think they know what is right when they really don't. And with that I will leave it alone. I have more and stronger comments about the issue that I will keep to myself.

I asked one of the school coordinators of Parent Pickup at my kid's school how many of the same kids do this day to day and she estimated 90% due to parents not wanting to wait for the bus drop off daily for what ever reason. Coordinating this in today's world takes a lot of time and effort by school administrators who could use the time for better things. I volunteer at my kids school weekly and see this post school dance done every time. Most buses leave 1/2 empty. My take on this is that the school is fed up on dealing with parent pickup tasks.

I would like to hear from the few of you guys who currently or in the past have worked at schools for your take on this topic.

My kids go to a charter school and there are no buses so parent pickup is how it's done.
They have parents line up the cars at various entrances and teachers bring kids out to their designated exit based on grade. Some parents will park in the lot and walk up to the proper door and the teachers will hand off the kids with no problem. Most parents just wait in the line though.

I don't know why they make it so tough elsewhere. Our "walkers and riders" are dismissed by half of the alphabet, through the door down the sidewalk to two parking lots, one lot for the first half, one lot for the second half. The further lot gets dismissed first then the closer, one teacher at each sidewalk. Kid sees parent's car or parent, kid goes to parent. It works fine at our school.

I drive my kids because the bus route here would have them riding on the bus with high schoolers to the high school and transferring to a shuttle bus, then to their school. There was no way I was going to expose my young Catholic grade school girls to a nearly unsupervised high school environment. I might be 20+ years out of high school, but I still remember...

The problem I have is the acceptance of the police state. He'll be charged with "disorderly conduct" "obstruction of justice" or some other bullshit blanket cop-can't-think-of-anything-else-but-doesn't-like-the-attitude.

crap. I'll not go on.

Yeah, at our school all the kids (and parents) are funneled into the cafeteria and then they exit out through a separate door.

Our school is crazy in dismissal, and parents who pick up do clutter the hallway, and it's always the same parents, but it is their right to do so. I think anyone can be accommodated for such a simple thing as long as it is thought out and the desire to accommodate is genuine.

Is there some reason why they couldn't implement a more organized system? All they have to do is announce that it's for the safety of the kids and people wouldn't say shit
