For the children

I'm not sure it's safe to let the little darlings go to school at all.  Maybe they should all be home-schooled:
Riggs said her 10-year-old daughter went on a school field trip recently and came back sun-burned. Riggs said district policy didn't allow her daughter to bring sunscreen to reapply.
But, NEISD spokeswoman Aubrey Chancellor said sunscreen is considered a medication, something children need a doctor's note to have at school.
"Typically, sunscreen is a toxic substance, and we can't allow toxic things in to be in our schools," Chancellor said.

This article is from San Antonio, Texas.

The Superintendent and anybody else associated with this policy from North East Independent School District should be charged with child endangerment.

Further, there needs to be an investigation as to where this policy originated, and how these people were trained, so that we can understand the origin of such poor judgment.

I grew up in San Antonio. For some of these children, failure to re-apply sunscreen will inevitably result in a burn.

I would also like to know just how these educated people think that sunscreen cream would be abused.

["W]e can't allow toxic things in to be in our schools," Chancellor said.

Sounds to me like Chancellor has just confessed to child abuse and announced the school routinely engages in child abuse.

It lets in all those toxic UV rays....

One more example of stupid rules making in schools.

While most doctorates in Education are not worth the paper they are printed on, a worthy dissertation topic would be how such stupid rules came to be adopted.

Instead of writing a dissertation on The Next Big Theory in Education Which Will Supersede All Before It, write one on Avoiding The Next Big Snafu.

Should watch out for the child rapists Hollywood cultivates and the teacher unions protect.
