Say NO to 5th Graders in middle school

Say No to 5th grade in middle school! The thought of my kids being educated by 8th graders instead of teachers is not too appealing. The separation idea is nice but it only takes a few seconds for kids to overhear a conversation by the pg-13 crowd. I can only imagine …daddy what does ^%*$ mean? Although maybe we will teach sex ed to 4th graders to prepare them for middle school. It’s tough enough for my 6th grader now.

Think I’m wrong! Walk over middle school to pick your child up from school and listen to the conversations the older kids are having with their friends. On occasion you find one or two kids trash talking on their cell phones. Imagine your kid walking through the crowd sitting on the bus while kids sing an x rated rap song or talk about a pg-13 movie.

Separation only works if they are 100% separated … like making the grade schools larger to be K-6 instead.
