Following the recent spate of school shootings in the United States of America, Kindergarten students are now being taught a “Lockdown” rhyme that lets them know what to do in case of a school shooting.
Georgy Cohen, the mother of a 5-year-old, found the rhyme posted in the school her daughter might attend and it angered her. She shared this photo of the rhyme, which is going viral. The rhyme is intended to be sung to the tune of “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star”.
Georgy said: “This should not be hanging in my soon-to-be kindergartner’s classroom.”
However, she made it clear to the Boston Globe she’s not pissed off at the school. Instead, she was happy the school was taking necessary steps. As she put it, “These are the things they unfortunately have to do. I get it.”
Not everyone agrees, and her post is sparking heated conversations online about the appropriate way to prepare young kids for the worst.
