We all know that it’s not a welcome thing, that parents are visiting student residences. So it’s natural that this student in France tried to stop them from coming.
But his method puts him in the news. He just called the flight they were to travel saying there’s a bomb aboard.
Olden days also the parents were not really welcome to visit the child in his learning environment. But with an exception. The money was to be brought in person during the visit and that was needed, most.
But with modern advancements in transferring money, sharing credit card limits etc. that part is taken care of. Then why the visit.
They are willing for a brief weekly FaceTime or Skype in a controlled environment. Why take the trouble to travel.
After all, education is about learning and at free will, freedom, liberty, fairness, inclusiveness etc. and why disturb the edifices!
At least, let the planes take off and other passengers travel. Leave the wards to the Temples of Knowledge.
