Parents fight -- literally -- at kindergarten graduation

By Valerie Strauss

Here’s what not to do at a graduation:

An argument between a few parents at a kindergarten graduation in California turned into a fight, witnesses said, and the school was put on lockdown.

According to the Daily Press, this occurred Wednesday at Puesta del Sol Elementary in Victorville, a city in the high desert of San Bernardino County.

Karen Hunt, a spokeswoman for the county sheriff’s office, said deputies did not see any fighting but were told that one had occurred.

A witness was quoted by the Daily Press as saying that several mothers began to fight in a field outside the school, near the site of the ceremony. A few men then jumped in and the newspaper said a "brawl" ensued.

There were no arrests and no injuries reported, Hunt said, and nobody came forward to say they had been victimized.

Why in the world did this end up on a major education blog?

LOL! The kindergartners have more maturity than their parents. Great example, Mom. Did you not have enough wine coolers before attending? Slosh.
