Fight for the right to party


Apparently, Swedish schools have now decided that children have a right – yes, a right –  to be invited to birthday parties. An eight-year-old boy was accused of discrimination when he failed to invite 2 of his classmates to his birthday party. According to the boy’s father, one of the uninvited students bullied the birthday boy and the other had not invited him to his own birthday party. But because the boy was handing the invitations out in class, his teacher confiscated them and has accused him of discrimination. According to the BBC, “The boy's school says he has violated the children's rights and has complained to the Swedish Parliament." The Parliament will decide whether the boy has a right to only invite his friends to his birthday party in September.
