The Information Commission Office (ICO) has issued guidance to parents that saves them from "watching" their children performing in the School's nativity play. The Commisioner said, "Parents have every right not to attend a Nativity when their child is the 19th of 34 wise men. Schools have been failing to follow the 'Parents Protection Act', which states that parents should not have to be embarrased by their childs' awful singing and/or the child looking a right pratt dressed as a wondering star."
Previously, schools have enforced the 'Parents Must Attend Everything Their Child Is Doing In School Act' to ensure a full to capacity for the Nativity, and also as way to make the children "wet themselves" when they see their parents in the crowd. Sarah Donohue, Headmistress of Killingbeck Primary school, Leeds said, with an evil glint in her eye, "With all the grief we get during the school term from the kids and parents, what a better way to get our own back."
However, the enforcment of the 'Parents Protection Act' will stop the only perk of the job for Teachers to "piss off" parents and their offspring in one go. School Heads around the country are up in arms, whilst parents are swinging from the rafters in celebration.
For the parents who are still willing to risk the torture of School Nativity plays, the 'Parents Protection Act' affords them the right to fall asleep, to point and laugh at their children and to take pictures so that they can be brought out when their child starts to bring home dates.
