Parents Opposed to Mandatory School Uniforms Get a Free Home Tutor For Their Kids

According to Principal Fred Ponti of the Huber Street School parents who are opposed to the mandatory school uniform policy, will get a free home tutor for their child until they are in compliance.

"For the elementary school levels, after the first offense, parents will be notified. The second offense, there will be a conference with the principal. Third offense, students will be given a home tutor until there is compliance. Nowhere are we talking about expulsion during any of the presentations to the parents. Never."

Home Tutor versus Public School, I know which I would choose for my children. It sounds like these parents are getting a good deal. No uniforms and a private home tutor to boot.
