School: Criticize us and we boot your kid


UPI News Service, 09/16/2005 

A British private school has a new contract with its pupils: If your parents criticize us, you will be expelled.

The Times of London reports the Bury Lawn School notified parents of the policy, which takes effect in January, after the parents association called on the company that manages the school to create an advisory committee. The school is run by Global Education Management Systems, a British company that operates there and in the United States, India and the United Arab Emirates.

Philip Martin, one of the leaders in the Bury Lawn Parents Association, told the newspaper he pulled his three daughters out of the school after he learned of the new contract.

"In a free society, draconian rules like this are almost intolerable, particularly because we are paying for a service," he said. "We don't live in a dictatorship, but a free society."

Principal Sheila Kaye warned parents in a letter dated Aug. 31 their children could be removed from the school if the parents engaged in conduct that was unreasonable and likely to bring Bury Lawn into disrepute.
