West Bend Students Protest New Hall Pass Policy

There was a bit of a kerfuffle at the West Bend High Schools today that resulted in a soft lock down for a little bit. You can read the details here and see an interview with the superintendent here.

The new hall pass policy requires kids to wear a visible hall pass on a lanyard around their necks instead of the old paper slip of the past. This has apparently upset some kids and their parents. Why? No idea. It makes sense to me so that staff can easily see if a kid wandering the hall has a pass permitting him or her to do so. In protest, some kids refused to return to class after a meeting about the new policy and ran down the halls doing some minor damage.

It seems to me that the policy is fairly sensible and that some kids got wrapped up in indignation over a lot of nothing. It happens.

    Basically, since essay writing constitutes around 30% of our final marks in each and every part of our year in school, college or university, it can prove to be quite challenging to many of us, including you and I. Most of us will not accept that it is a hustle to write an essay about some of the questions our lecturers or professors put forth to us but those of us that do look for help. Well, I did after coming to terms with that fact in an internet which I have been using ever since it was introduced to me. How wonderful is it that I don’t have to know what am writing about when I am handing in the paper but I still score awesome marks from my essay that go a long way in my final marks.
