Everyone knows that Franklin County has the highest concentration of snowflakes in Massachusetts. But even this seems a tad bit absurd:
Yup, that’s right – there’s an epidemic of 5 and 6 year olds in Greenfield who don’t know how to use the potty. Real life:
After a group of kindergarten teachers spoke out about growing concerns over students coming to school without being sufficiently toilet-trained, a recommendation has been made by the school’s policy committee to potentially address this issue in the future. Over the summer, teachers went to a policy and curriculum subcommittee to discuss an uptick in students in their classes this past school year who were not fully toilet-trained, looking for possible solutions from the School Committee and the superintendent.
The first question that Hollins, the head of the subcommittee, had to address was whether a student who is not toilet-trained is eligible to come to kindergarten. After extensive review of policy language, both locally and across the state, Hollins said she found that if the child is the right age, then they are all set. “It became clear looking at the laws that if the children are eligible for kindergarten, they are eligible for kindergarten,” Hollins said.
With this knowledge, Hollins, alongside member Don Alexander, looked to what could the school do to make sure that students who were coming to school could function in the school setting to the best of their ability. They set out to shape the policy in a way that could address any issues children may be having and that the superintendent could then address if a problem cropped up. “I think there have always been a couple children who weren’t toilet trained but it seems like more now, but it could be the particular year,” Hollins said.
This is how snowflakes are manufactured. People always whine about millenials and the everyone gets a trophy generation. But it’s not their fault that their parents completely failed them.
