Now this is the kind of thing that just honks me off. Here are two kids, goofing around…sure, causing some trouble…sure, but essentially showing that they are a couple of youngsters who are interested in more than drinking, drugs, and teen-pregnancy.
Here are two girls with enough brains (I wouldn’t know how to do this!) and gumption to pull off a prank and now they’re talking about expelling them from high school! An act that could effect their future educational opportunities, and thereby their careers, and thereby their entire lives.
What did these two dastardly felons do? OH MY GOD…they posted a “snow day” release on the school webpage. (The horror!)
Maybe their superintendent needs to take a week off with a Costo-size box of laxatives and a copy of “Sense of Humor for Dummies.”
I mean, we have teenage drug dealers and gang-bangers getting slapped on the wrist (or totally ignored) but…BY GUM we’re gonna make an example of these two! (Melvin, get a rope!)
Hey…Edgewood City Schools…Lighten Up, Francis!
The real issue here (in my not-so-humble opinion) is that some “educators” got their egos tweaked after a hundred phone calls from angry parents asking, “You got hacked by WHO?” These a couple of smart kids who are obviously bored and maybe have too much free time on their hands. Give ‘em community service, let ‘em teach computer basics to kindergarteners for a month.
Instead of trying to destroy their potential, how about we funnel it into something useful?
Oh wait…that’s what prison is for…right?
Okay, I’m going to go take my meds and cool off.
