California Elementary School Nixes Kneeling Poilicy

YUCAIPA, Calif., (UPI) — Officials with a California school district said an elementary school is ending its policy of requiring students to kneel down prior to dismissals.

Yucaipa Calimesa Unified School District Superintendent Cali Binks said the policy at Calimesa Elementary School in Yucaipa will no longer be enforced after an anonymous flyer circulated among parents led to complaints, KCAL-TV, Los Angeles, reported Thursday.

The flyer alleged Principal Dana Carter instituted a policy recently requiring students to drop to one knee at various points throughout the day and wait to be dismissed by the principal or another administrator.

A mother who asked not to be named said she was horrified to learn the policy had been implemented at the school, which her 7-year-old daughter attends.

“She says that she has to drop down on one knee with her hands at her side, wait for the principal to come out, lift his arms and tell them to go to class,” the mother said. “I feel that the principal wants to be like a king, and we don’t have kings in America.”
