the dance detention

My brother called this story from our hometown newspaper to my attention. In short, the story reports that students who elected to buy their tickets to the Homecoming dance at the door were issued detention for their failure to plan ahead and buy them ahead of time. Seriously. They were given detention for deciding to attend a school-sponsored event. Not cool enough to get a date until just before the dance? No problem … if you don’t mind detention. One would think that the administration should be drumming up ways to encourage students to engage with the school instead of handing out punishment for punishment’s sake.

This story was just too ridiculous not to share.
