A zero tolerance policy on drugs and alcohol for its students is not the “nanny state,” it’s setting a proper standard for an institution that someone is going to earn a diploma from. If you either help supply the alcohol or help transport the kids back and forth from the “bender,” you’re enabling their activity, even if you aren’t drinking yourself.
>> its setting a proper standard for an institution that someone is going to earn a diploma from.
You mean “...for an institution from which someone is going to earn a diploma.”
Sounds like at your high school they had their ducks in a row on the alcohol thing... grammar, not so much!
A preposition is a word you should NEVER end a sentence with. :-)
Yes. Obviously, it would have been far preferable for the enabled drunk kid to have driven head-on into a family on her way home over those narrow, windy Boxford roads.
I agree on "zero tolerance," incidentally. I think the principal should be fired for this.
“A zero tolerance policy on drugs and alcohol for its students”... while on school property and while on school sponsored events is fine but the school dictating what student can and can not do on their own time is over the limit. FYI, I don’t drink or do drugs and have very little tolerance of those who do but I have even less tolerance for nanny state schools. You earn a diploma for the 3 Rs, not for character.
so we now allow schools to create "law" that reaches beyond education in the school?
sorry Jedi - thats a nanny state
and you're buying into it.
State run schools have no business reaching into our homes and lives
