Just in case you were wondering how Government Health Care Reform would go, here’s a cautionary example from Indiana. The East Porter County School Board knows whats better for your kids than you, and the parent’s wishes for their children will be completely ignored:
The board approved a new policy directing that students in life-threatening medical situations be resuscitated while in the district’s care or on its property, including buses. The policy would supersede the wishes of parents who have signed “do not resuscitate” orders.
Superintendent Rod Gardin said a number of district students who are bused to the Special Education Learning Facility in Valparaiso have such orders. Students in dire situations would be given medical aid until released to a parent’s care, Gardin said.
The district has not encountered any situations that would fall under the policy in his four years there, Gardin said.
And if letting a high-school student die sounds cruel and heartless, these type of DNR orders are only given out for the most severely physically handicapped students who have massive physical birth defects and other problems.
But we’re gonna bring them back, by God, despite the wishes of the parents; despite the enormous financial costs it will incur to the parents; despite the devastating emotional toll it will take on the families.
For people in charge of our children’s education, they sure do act from ignorance.
And you were expecting something BETTER with government-run Health care?
