Vectron: Mom says it's how the negros dance. Thank goodness, bussing hasn't become law yet.
queezyweezel: How much of a control freak do you have to be in order to come up with policies like that......thank God my kids aren't in that district, because I'd have a field day with that administration...
RodneyToady: I'm older than some of you, younger than others. In my elementary and high school days, we were warned against the lambada.

ecmoRandomNumbers: queezyweezel: How much of a control freak do you have to be in order to come up with policies like that......thank God my kids aren't in that district, because I'd have a field day with that administration...It depends on the district demographics. I used to teach in inner-city Phoenix. It's disturbing seeing 6th-8th graders grinding on each other. We had to stop that crap every single dance. ALL teachers had to chaperone, and it wasn't a matter of being control freaks. The kids didn't really think anything was wrong with it because they learned it from their parents, older siblings, the neighborhood, TV, wherever. Different culture. It was up to us to teach them that it's not acceptable for kids to dance like it's spring break in Daytona. Your kids might know better, but others don't. Luckily we had some really cool, hip, young male teachers to teach the boys how to dance like gentlemen.I wouldn't chaperone a high school dance, either, that didn't have very specific rules in place, if nothing more than to shield myself from liability. If you don't lay out the guidelines clearly, kids are going to push those nebulous limits. That's their nature./this is coming from a person who is far from a prude.
groppet: Well good luck enforcing it unless you get the parents to sign it too.
AverageAmericanGuy: Dancing is a means of self-expression. If this school wants to take on the First Amendment, I think they're in for a rude awakening.
omeganuepsilon: Who wants to watch a bunch of teens act like Miley Cyrus's extra awkward brand of "sexy"?
Skr: I suppose they couldn't just control the dancing by being careful on which music to play.I'd like to see them try to twerk it up to Chopin's Nocturne in C-Sharp Minor!
Uchiha_Cycliste: AverageAmericanGuy: Dancing is a means of self-expression. If this school wants to take on the First Amendment, I think they're in for a rude awakening.You are mistaken. The courts have made it clear that children do not have their full first amendment rights when they are under the care of teachers, staff etc. This was made clean in the "Bong hits for Jesus" case.

Lady J: yeah cos if you ban grinding at a high school dance, it follows absolutely definitely that they won't have inappropriate sex.

DO NOT WANT Poster Girl: Easy, just don't have school dances. Stupid things.
