High School Bans Dirty Dancing

Footloose (Special Collector's Edition)

They call it "grinding" now and Geneva High School officials have issued a ban. Does this remind you of an old movie?
Six administrators were to enforce the dancing on Friday, Rogers said. Students were to wear a school-provided wristband during the event. Those seen dancing inappropriately were to have their wristbands removed. Students who continued to grind were to be removed from the dance, according to the letter.

Repeat behavior could lead to students being banned from subsequent dances, according to the letter.

"We caused a stir, if you will, but I think we've done the right thing," Rogers said. "It will take time, but I think it will be a positive change in the long run."

School officials also met with the disc jockey before the dance to eliminate songs from the playlist that would encourage such dancing, Rogers said.

"Nothing wrong with that. But the same school probably gives them condoms."

That is an interesting observation. I wish I had thought of it prior to the post.

Hey All,

I believe that if this is what a community wants to do, then it should be left up to them.

The problem is, our school system has been "federalized", and every school has to be "cookie cutter".

Diversity used to be one of the good things about our Country.

Over time we have been indoctrinated in to believing that everyone is the same.

It's sad really.
