Mike Mondo, who has been filling in for Maina Kageni, had a captivating topic today on Classic 105. He and Mwalimu spoke about the recent suspension of 10 students from St. Mary’s school, Nyeri for spotting tattoos.
Mike and King’ang’i were shocked that a section of parents agreed with school administration not to admit their children. They both felt that the teachers had a point in suspending the students.
The question that Mike had was how the parents could support their sons putting tattoos on their bodies and whether the teachers had done the right thing in suspending the students.
The comments from listeners are below;
I understand what is going on. Some of the parents of these kids have tattoos, so the government should be preparing themselves for that trend in the future – A man said.
There are no parents anymore. Even going to the barber, one was accompanied. The parents are the bad ones in this case. How can a child correct a child? A man said.
How do the tattoos prevent a student from learning? As a parent, I support that. As long as the kid is learning, shule iwache ushamba! – A mother spoke.
If I was near the holy Bible, I would show you where it is written that it is forbidden -A man said.
I am with Mwalimu on this and I think we need to have universal values. When you allow your kid to go out there and have tattoos, will they be accepted? I am a mother of boys and I don’t think their future wives families will accept them with the tattoos. The reason we have uniformity in the school is those differences(tattoos, dreads) can create disruption – A woman said.
