My daughter’s Social Studies Assignment this week – She HAD to take a picture of what food we had in the Pantry, Freezer and Fridge along with a picture of her family!
My daughter is in middle school. 2 days ago she had a Social Studies assignment that she HAD TO DO! She had no choice as she would get an F if she did not do the required assignment!
What was that assignment?
She had to take a picture of our food pantry and the food in it and she had to take a picture of our Freezer and Fridge with what amount of food we had, how much was spent on food per week and she had to bring in a picture of her family!
It really bothered me and I did not want her to do it, but she got upset and said she had to do it and that is was just for comparing to food people eat in other countries!
I allowed her to take the pictures and take a picture of her and I for the project.
Now, I have been thinking about it this morning with the information about the Federal Government going to the Mormon Food Pantry demanding a list of who has purchased bulk food.
So now that I am thinking about this – is this part of the government using the schools to find out how much food people have and to get pictures of the family? Is this going to be the way they operate……the teachers give kids classroom assignments and threaten F’s if they don’t do them?
I now, don’t believe it was an innocent school assignment, it most probably was a Federal Government controlled assignment for the kids.
I would like to know, has anyone else in the country have had their kids have the same assignment?
I am in East Tennessee (Knoxville), I am revealing this due to people wondering where, but I will not give the school name that is giving too personal information.
