Principal’s problem-solving rule for parents goes viral
LITTLE ROCK, Arkansas- A Little Rock high school principal’s new set of rules for the school year is making headlines.
A post made on August 10 on the Catholic High School for Boys Facebook page stated, “Welcome to Catholic High. We teach reading, writing, arithmetic, and problem-solving.” Along with the post was a sign that told parents, “If you are dropping off your son’s forgotten lunch, books, homework, equipment, etc, TURN AROUND and exit the building. Your son will learn to problem-solve in your absence.”
The Facebook post has since been shared over 100,000 times.
Principal Steve Straessle told KARK-TV, “We put a sign up on the front door to not only alert new parents to the policy, but to remind people why we do it,” said Straessle.
Some parents were upset kids that forgot their lunches would be hungry. Principal Straessle wants to assure everyone that won’t happen. He said, No one will starve because they know how to problem solve.
