Liberal teachers who believe they “OWN” the children and the parents are the enemy, how typical for them to put Government as more important than parents.
These are “CHILDREN” not adults. They are not mature enough to make all of their own decisions in life. If the child is enduring a severe mental stress situation and the school refuses to inform the parents, then if that child commits suicide I say the school is liable because they took away the parent’s capacity to care for the needs of their child.
Only parents have any capacity to actually love and care for the child, school administrators will never love the child and care for the child or have to bury the child if the school administrators fail to adequately identify and call attention to problems the parents should have been told about.
Teachers are not doctors, they do not have the training needed to make these kinds of decisions even if it was their place, but of course it is not.
