This week Adam Guerrero, a math teacher at Raleigh-Egypt High School in Memphis, TN., along with three students became lawbreakers after they continued to tend to a garden after it was deemed a neighborhood nuisance.
:jawdrop: Geez we are so lucky to live in Aus. Maybe empowerment of low socio-economic youth is not considered a good thing in the US. There can be a lot of reasons for that -none valid.I think in NT there is a project to give indigenous youth a sense of empowerment and achievement by teaching them to grow their own food -it’s having a good outcome with improving self esteem and motivation.
if his yard was over run with rats and other pests then you could understand but it sounds like its tidy.
Obviously a neighbour isnt very happy with what the teacher is doing to help these kids
only had to read the heading to know it referred to USA, lots of similar stories and so sad
Red tape gone mad. 🙁
It’s interesting that in a country that is so hooked on the “pursuit of happiness” and the rights of the individual, there seems to so many regulations governing what should be a personal and private choice. Big corporations seem to be the only beneficiaries of this deregulated philosophy and pretty much do what ever they want.Maybe that’s what this is about- too many little people thinking for themselves may be a threat to “homeland security”(big business)
Exactly Sue. I also read that theya re trying to pass/have just passed a law in California that children can be vaccinated against their parents will and without their consent. So much for freedom of choice….
