Principal’s Rant About Rule-Breaking Parents Goes Viral

Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin aren’t the only parents behaving badly. The recent college admissions scandal seemed to shock everyone, but the principal of an elementary school in Lexington, Kentucky says he sees parents breaking rules time. Gerry Brooks posted a rant to Facebook that has been viewed more than 6 million times.

“Everybody’s so surprised by this. You know who’s not surprised? Every educator in the whole world. You know why? Because this kind of thing happens every day in schools.” Brooks said. “You know what this is? A parent not agreeing with a policy or a rule, sometimes a law, so they are going to do whatever they want because they think its best for their child.”

He goes on to list several instances where parents will break or ignore school rules. Brooks says when parents break policies, they are teaching their child that the rules don’t apply to them.

So do you ever break rules for your kids?
