All the recent news from mostly conservative websites have been blasting a Calimesa Elementary school principal for mandating students take a knee. It’s been seen as “monarch worshipping” and that this principal is on a power-trip.
However, if we examine both sides of the story, we can get a well-rounded version of what this “taking a knee” policy is all about. Some parents are outraged their students are having to kneel before the principal. Some parents have said that it’s not kneeling, and it’s “taking a knee” like football players do. It’s being done to calm them and to reduce accidents like tripping.
The headlines are splashed all over the internet about a school principal in California forcing students to kneel before being dismissed.
Has the kneeling policy of this school been misconstrued or is the principal on a power-trip? In all actuality, the students are not kneeling; they are “taking a knee” like football players do.
