Education

Education is the place for The Tentacle readers to learn about what is happening in their child’s classroom.  We publish what other media is too afraid to talk about.  Our agenda is looking out for what is in your child’s best interests and the interest of you, the parents and guardians.

Children Have A Right to Self-Defense

Anyone who knows me knows I absolutely cannot stand people that bully others. Without a question, I have no respect for anyone that picks on weaker or smaller people, from kids at school to adults at work. I have a special disdain for school age bullies for very good reason. Not only because I have a 10 year old son, but because bullying can lead to several short term issues such as sleep disturbances, poor school performance and symptoms of depression just to name a few. If left unchecked prolonged bullying can lead to chronic depression, suicide attempts, poor general health and substance abuse among other things. Being a kid/teenager is hard enough without the added drama brought on by being the victim of bullying.

In a measure of sheer brilliance and masterful foresight, the ravenous scourge of a would-be plastic plague was averted. Truly, King Solomon himself would have sat in utter amazement as he skillfully watched the applied collective wisdom that was laid before the masses. The decision was truly a masterful example of government at its finest.
