Any Catholic School Superintendent, or Principal who hides behind these words -" It's Our Policy!" - needs to be shown the door. Catholic Schools will continue to close, so long as they ape Public Schools.
Here is an example of Policy kicking the Gospels of Christ and the Jesus portrayed in them squarely in the nuts.
BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A young girl who has just finished fighting the biggest fight of her life has been dealt another blow.
In August 2012, Rose McGrath, of Battle Creek, was diagnosed with leukemia.
But last week, her family received a letter in the mail that would turn her world upside down.
The letter addressed concerns regarding Rose's attendance and academic performance, and stated that Rose had been dismissed from St. Joseph Middle School.
"I didn't do anything wrong, but they still got rid of me," Rose said.
Rose McGrath is beside herself.
She's been with the Battle Creek Area Catholic Schools all her life, but attending school got difficult when she was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia in 2012.
"Even though she's now done with her treatment you still have a very long recovery process because you've basically just put two and a half years of poison into your body. you're not recovering overnight," said Rose's mother Barbara McGrath.
The McGraths say despite all of the obstacles, Rose was on track to pass her core classes.
Now, just shy of the end of the school year, they say she's been pulled from the one place where she felt normal.
"When I'm at home, I'm sick, I don't feel well; no one else does that. But when I'm at school I'm like everyone else," Rose said.
According to the letter from St. Joseph Middle School, Rose was dismissed because she could not meet academic or attendance standards.
Rose attended 32 full days this year.
- They have the State Certifications and Licenses! (B EFFing Deal!)
- They pray off of Xeroxed Copies
- They attend leadership workshops
- They could not name three students in school with a cocked and loaded Glock at their temples
- They ascend the Diocesan bureaucratic ladder after each and every screw-up and disaster
- They Are Never Accountable, because they are never challenged by people who should know better
Policy allows incompetence.
Policy is Smarm Prose for People who can not diagram a sentence.
Here is Policy -
"These were extraordinary circumstances, but so many accommodations were made we felt eventually it became a point where we really had to help Rose, by being able to make sure that she was getting the assistance that she needed and to learn," said Father John Fleckenstein, with Battle Creek Area Catholic Schools.

Oh and Father John? Hop up and kiss my Irish Ass!
