A public school in Queensland, Australia announced a new policy of contacting the police if parents fail to pick up their children on time after classes. As posted on the school’s official Facebook page on May 19, parents must pick up their children every 3:00 p.m. or until 30 minutes after classes end. Parents must contact the front desk if they cannot do so. The school will call the police and Child Safety Services if parents do not follow this new rule. The Queensland Teachers’ Union (QTU) and its department of education support the school’s decision, but some parents disagree with the policy. Some parents say that leaving their children within the school an hour or so does not need to be reported to the police. Drop-off zones can also be difficult to access during school days because of heavy traffic.
