We Believe All Students Are Winners… So The Competitive "Urge To Win" Must Be Kept To A Minimum

No winners, no losers. Everyone always fits nicely in the gooey middle, so why even try to excel? From :

Parents of students at North Hill Elementary in Rochester Hills, Michigan, have reportedly been informed that all students are “winners,” therefore the “competitive ‘urge to win’ will be kept to a minimum” at the school’s annual field day.

The flyer, , reads in part:

The purpose of the day is for our school to get together for an enjoyable two hours of activities and provide an opportunity for students, teachers and parents to interact cooperatively. Since we believe that all of our children are winners, the need for athletic ability and the competitive “urge to win” will be kept to a minimum. The real reward will be the enjoyment and good feelings of participation.

Bennett Staph, who claims to be a parent with a child at the school, reportedly posted a photo of the field day notice on Facebook. She said she was “proud” of her daughter for “pointing out the ridiculousness of it.”

Board votes unanimously to allow student-led prayer

Seen at :

The federal government removed prayer from schools more than 50 years ago, but it will go on in Liberal, led by students and allowed by the school board. Taking action on an item spontaneously added to the agenda near the end of Monday’s meeting, the USD No. 480 school board voted unanimously to allow student-led prayer at all activities in the district.

Because it specifies that school officials do not initiate or lead the prayers, the action is intended to comply with federal law even as it makes prayer possible.

“I think that’s one of the greatest things we’ve ever done,” said board member Tammy Sutherland-Abbott, who seconded board member Nick Hatcher’s motion.

Hatcher introduced the idea during his portion of the time allowed for board comments.

“I would like to see us bring prayer back to the games,” he told his fellow board members, after expressing admiration for the LHS Redskins football team. “I have struggled with that — not having prayer at our activities — because it’s ‘not the thing to do,’ but if the board thought it was important enough that they would support it, and defend it if the time came, I’d like to ask that we do that at our next meeting.”

“Why not do it now?” asked Sutherland-Abbott.
