After struggling with growing numbers of parents in school cafeterias, the Darien school system said parents and guardians would no longer be welcome to visit with their children during lunch at the town's elementary schools.

The decision has stirred strong emotions in Darien, a wealthy shoreline community that prides itself on its high-performing public schools. While some parents said it was time to stop a disruptive practice, others have protested at town meetings and in online forums that the change has deprived them of cherished time to check in on their children and model good social behavior.

"We believe that schools exist for children, and we work to develop the skills necessary for students to grow into engaged members of society," Ochman said in a written statement. "We work every day on this mission so that our students embrace their next steps confidently and respectfully."

What necessary skills? Liberalism?

Who made you the arbiter of morality? You are not Government but you sure are acting like one.

Protesting 101 is probably a mandatory class.

Typical liberalism. How dare parents be involved with their children in school. We certainly don't want parents to see what is going on in our schools.

I don't live very far from this twon. Can't say i'm not suprised by this. At my elementry school it was always the policy that parents couldnt eat with their kids after they believed it created to many distractions. I never believed it was a distraction and it makes me wonder why this is even happening. Not really a huge suprise here in CT, home of horrible leftist policy accross the board.

School are like the government, they need full control all the time.  It started of the school over 50 years ago.
