Interesting move - thanks to Covid, we know exactly how much remote-learning hurts and pisses off parents. It is basically community punishment, but if there's serious or escalating violence, it makes some sense.  May have to do it some places just from students wrecking most of the bathrooms in their building. I hear schools are trying to investigate those incidents, but have nothing to go on.

Both interesting and sad. Makes me wonder if some schools will just go virtual as a model.

get rid of the bad ones by any means necessary (let their legal custodians deal with them) and let those who can, do.

JFC, is it really that hard?

Ah, the Tik Tok "deviant licks" trend. Yep. It's cost our school a few sinks and bathroom soap dispensers, and already a few have been arrested and charged (at least one as an adult). Because as internet trends go, "I'm going to become famous by taking video of myself committing a crime," is right up there with the Tide Pod challenge. Difference this time is, instead of just hurting themselves, they're hurting the rest of the community.

I say throw the book at 'em.

Depends on the decade...when I did my undergrad in CT, never had a single issue there. When I was growing up, like, early 80s,wed go pick up Kielbasa for Easter at Martin and Rosol and then go grab Capitol hot dogs (Cappies, for those in the know).

My grandparents grew up there, and though they left when my grandfather got back from WWII, my great grandparents stayed. Never had an issue. It's like any small, old, dying industrial city. There's a kind of stasis that drags people down, and the local government (try as they might) doesn't really get the state-level support they need.

I met with mayor Erin Stewart a couple of times when she was first elected to line up a research project I was working on. She seemed to have the best interests of the city at heart. It really sucks that they can't quite nail down the formula.

Tldr/ Combine poverty and high school students (anywhere in America) and you're gonna have a bad time.
