Teachers At North Carolina School Banned From Saying 'Please'

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WTVD) — For parents, please is often referred to as the magic word, but now one Charlotte school is banning teachers from using it.

Officials at Druid Hills Academy say that the goal is to make so-called "bratty kids" behave.

It's called "No-Nonsense Nurturing," where the teachers give kids concise, clear instructions in a format called M.V.P. – movement, voice and participation.
