    British Students Threatened With "Racial Discrimation Note" For Skipping Field Trip

    British Students Threatened With "Racial Discrimation Note" For Skipping Field Trip

    Christine Rousselle | Nov 22, 2013

    Field trips are generally a fun break from the ordinary school routine. But for some British students, not going on a field trip could have put a dark stain on their permanent records.
    In a letter sent to students at Littleton Green Community School, students and parents were warned that skipping a religious education field trip would result in a "racial discrimination note" on their permanent records.

    Refusal to allow your child to attend this trip will result in a Racial Discrimination note being attached to your child's education record, which will remain on this file throughout their school career.
    The field trip involved some elements of Islam, which concerned some parents.

    Islam, of course, is not a race, so it is confusing as to why a child would be labeled as a racist over not attending a field trip. Furthermore, it is ridiculous to label a child as a racist over the actions of their parents.
    The headmistress of the school, who sent the original letter, eventually withdrew the threat and apologized to her students.

    Are we all impressed yet, this is happening over in Britain, lets see them try that here! Be forewarned folks...
