TCS school policy regarding the transport to and from School events like MUN has received a recent change; it has become harsh and restrictive. The Columbus School has taken a path where the school’s policy is hurting the students more that they are protecting them. Luckily, they are still in time to turn back and amend the situation but this must be done before it is too late. Taking this into account the logical path is that the school reevaluate their priorities and go back to a state where it was before.

When you have to wake up at 5 a.m. drive and hour and be a whole saturday at a public event as an emergency delegate with the sole purpose of representing the school and leaving its name as high, a different school might thank their students for doing this. However, TCS is not a normal school what it does is give its students “faltas graves” and ban them from attending a few of these events because the event was at 6:30 a.m. on the other side of the city and we did not want our parents stressing over being responsible for driving us to and from this venue. Just from a logical perspective this situation is clearly not correct.

The policy has not changed, but the way that the School is approaching the already written, but rarely known guidelines, has. Before the school had a relaxed attitude towards how students got to these events and how they left, but in recents months the School has started to crack down on students who are “infringing” this righteous policy and are adding a barrier to entry to the only purely academic extracurricular activity that the School attends. There are situations that have gotten how of hand but for the most part it has been great with a few exceptions.

If this current mind set does not change attendance to these events will take a serious hit and the one impeccable imagine that the school had garnered will eventually disappear and TCS will become known to other schools as the one that does not allow their students to attend these events. Alejandro Gomez, president of the ICP committee, entrepreneur, CEO and founder of Car-Men, stucco, and a high decorates delegate with over 15 models experience and an impressive amount of prizes ranging from best dressed to best speaker and best delegate, eloquently put the problem into words, “It affects us in a negative way due to the fact that any times we do not have a parent or guardian that can take to [venue] were the MUN is being held and pick us up especially because the hour when the simulation starts are the labour hours in which many people have to work [including most parents].”

The school is on a path to destroy one of its best assets that the students have worked to hard to build, the MUN community and if it does not change and start to trust in its students then the school will damned.
