S2S trip

Student 2 Student representatives from Moore County Schools prepare to leave Southern Pines for a national training in Washington, D.C.

Students who want to help the children of military families fit in at school have been in Washington, D.C. for a conference this week despite some school board members’ reservations about a speaker who will focus on the mental health of LGBTQ teens.

School staff sought board approval last week for 12 middle and high school students to attend the Student 2 Student National Training Seminar held in conjunction with the Military Child Education Coalition Global Summit. Field trips outside of North Carolina require board approval for review of travel and lodging arrangements.

Shame on parents who let their children be brainwashed by the far left. Shame on MCS for using taxpayer money to promote far left causes. Shame on The Pilot for supporting this. What is the need for a conference to teach kids how to move to a new school? I did this multiple times as a kid and so did my children. A fact of life when the father is an engineer. I don’t recall any special program to help my kids adjust to a new school - and they crossed the ocean twice and had to suddenly learn their lessons in a different language. No special treatment or tutors needed. We told them to suck it up and work harder. They did.
