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.
