Call Me Old Fashioned...

I am so proud of both of my girls. They are doing well in school and extracurricular activities. They are polite to everyone, but not push overs. My youngest has even been offered a job at the local health club helping with swimming
instruction. She would aid the main instructor. How cool is that? She is very excited. We spoke to the main instructor, and he gave her paper work to fill out and take to her school. Apparently they need to approve her for work. Mind you, this is for after
school hours. It is not a work release program!
I thought it over and I just can't figure this out. My 16 year old daughter can go out and get a job without my approval or knowledge, but the school has to sign off on it? Does anyone else see a problem with this? My kids both think I am a nutter over this.
They don't understand yet what being a parent is. I think the state wants it that way.
I'm not going to let this be. I need some clarification from the school about this situation. Perhaps I am misinformed. Maybe I don't understand what is going on here. I'm willing to give the benefit of the doubt until the facts are spread out. God help us
all if I actually am interpreting this correctly. Parents are irrelevant. It takes a village to raise a child. (My flaccid, chubby backside!)
Edit: The form that the school sends to the work place does require the parents signature. My righteous ire has been assuaged.
