The child's voice

MOULTRIE — Dear editor:

Some administrators/teachers are not going to be fair and treat all students equally. It’s their word against the student’s.

The word of the teacher/administrator will always stick, which is not being fair. That’s basically saying to the students that they do not have a voice.

I advise all parents to make a full and thorough investigation yourself when your child is involved, right or wrong. You will be surprised what some people will do to cover themselves.

We as parents are our children’s voices because there are people in high places who feel as though they can talk to a child any way they want and manipulate them or the issue at hand and get away with it.

I have two children and I am always checking on mine. Wonder if it was the administrator, teacher or bus driver, or counselor’s child, would they always take the word of the adult who referred their child over their own?

When does a child have a chance to plead his case?

 If a child is telling the truth, the administrator, teacher, bus driver or counselor’s word still stands?

Should abortion be legal for victims of rape?

No. That baby is alive, no matter how horrible its manner of conception.
Yes. It's wrong to force a woman to carry the child of her rapist.
Abortion is a private matter and should be legal for everyone.
