With a rash of bullying incidents, a high school principal has decided on a clever plan: Require students to smile or be forced to go to a guidance councilor to talk about their feelz.
“‘If you don’t (smile) you get called to the office or down to see your guidance counselor,’ she said. ‘You have to talk about your problems then. You have to or you get detention.’
“Even though smiling in the hallways is not a written rule at the school district, it is something that Assistant High School Principal Benjamin Wenger has taken upon himself to enforce, according to several teachers. The teachers […] asked to remain anonymous for fear of retaliation from the school district.”
Rather than actually deal with the complaints about rampant harassment and bullying, the principal seems to want to take the easy route of mandatory smiling. That would give him more time to play “toss the sex toy” during school hours, which is has been accused of doing.
The children are in the very worst of hands…
