@#25 ... It may be the kid is just naturally obnoxious and not very good at figuring out which hill he wants to die on. ...
Or maybe, quite the opposite.
... "School officials said George was sent to the disciplinary program for violating the dress code and the tardy policy ...
So what was it that he did? Spefically?
Was it the dress code violation or the tardy policy?
Why are the school officials apparently so ambiguous in their accusations?
Why do the school officials seem to demand such a rigorous agreement with their rules?
I mean, can you say "indoctrination?"
I will repeat, the teachers in my high school would be aghast of what seems to have occurred in this thread.
fwiw, here's my high school...
Brooklyn Technical High School
... Brooklyn Technical High School, commonly called Brooklyn Tech and administratively designated High School 430, is a public high school in New York City that specializes in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. It is one of the three original specialized high schools operated by the New York City Department of Education, along with Stuyvesant High School and the Bronx High School of Science. Brooklyn Tech is considered one of the country's most prestigious and selective high schools.
Admission to Brooklyn Tech involves taking the Specialized High Schools Admissions Test and scoring the cutoff for Brooklyn Tech.
Each November, about 30,000 eighth and ninth graders take the 3-hour test for admittance to eight of the nine specialized high schools. About 1,400 to 1,500 students are admitted each year.
Brooklyn Tech counts top scientists, inventors, innovators, Fortune 500 company CEOs and founders, high-ranking diplomats, academic scholars, literary and media figures, professional athletes, National Medal recipients, Nobel laureates, and Olympic medalists among its alumni. ...
There was no dress code at my high school. That lack of a dress code did not seem to affect the education that the students received.
So, I guess my main question here is why does the stated dress code of that Texas school seem to be focused upon things beside education?
