Everyone Should Be Squared Away

I had an unpleasant experience at my son's junior high middle school the other day where we had to wait two hours to turn in several registration forms.  I don't remember the registration process taking so long last year.  This time around we were given a number and asked to wait in line.  Actual contact with school officials, who were going over the paperwork, took about ten minutes.  I was so upset that I tore the principal a proverbial new one.

I was surprised to learn that everybody is going through the same thing.  At the high school level, students are even supposed to take a parent  along to register.  People were unable to wait in line so a lot of them end up leaving.  I don't know why the change was made, but it's a step backwards towards efficiency and autonomy.
