Code of conduct for students

We hear that the Roxbury school  board is considering adopting a code of conduct for students that will be in effect 12 months a year … Talk about overkill … Why is what happens in July when school is out, the concern of  school administrators?

    Perhaps the reason for the need for a code of conduct is that the students of Roxbury do not know how to conduct themselves. Perhaps there is not enough parental control in Roxbury. We don’t hear this type of thing in districts where students tend to act rightly. A little extra care for our children couldn’t hurt. They ARE just children after all and need adult guidance. Better safe than sorry. And if they are, in fact, behaving, then they have nothing to worry about. People only get upset by Big Brother when they are trying to buck the system.

    Dear ABW,

    Go back and re-read 1984 and tell us that there’s ever a good reason for a “Big Brother!” And if you still think it’s a great idea, get in your time machine and warp back to the the 1960’s Soviet Union. They had Big Brother nailed.

    You don’t need to look very hard to see “Big Brother” watching us at every shopping mall, place of business, school hallway, and soon-to-come: traffic lights right here in the good ol’ USA…
