It’s been a while since I’ve been a high school student myself, buy I must say it never would have occurred to me even now to have sex in the boy’s bathroom. Yes, that’s right: Sex at school. During the school day. In the gross (sorry guys, but it is) boy’s bathroom.
These two youngsters apparently had it arranged for someone to distract the teacher on duty so the young lady could sneak in and then they were able to get their freak on. And apparently it didn’t matter if a few people saw.
From what I heard from the staff, all who know her are shocked. Not much has been said about the boy, which goes along with our society’s double standard of it’s ok for the gents to score.
I’m disgusted. Mostly because the district I instruct in does not have a safe sex program or a sex program at all. The word ‘masturbation’ is not to be uttered. It’s a ridiculous policy. I imagine we’re getting close to only teaching the creationist theory of how humans got on this Earth. But I digress.
As a staff we were forbidden to talk about “The Incident”, almost to the point of not even discussing it amongst ourselves. Don’t talk about it with students, direct any media contact to the board office, and don’t discuss it with any parent of any student.
Suspensions are already being served and it may be decided that they should both be expelled. Although, I imagine the young lady, who by all of her teachers’ accounts is a soft spoken, all A student, will be hard pressed to show her face there again. But maybe I’m wrong; I’m not now 15. Maybe it’ll be seen as an act of courage.
