Unhappy Subject: HIGH SCHOOL 1957 vs. 2014

By today's standards none of us were supposed to ever make it.
Scenario 1: Jack goes duck hunting before school and then pulls into the school
parking lot with his shotgun in his truck's gun rack.
1957 - Vice Principal comes over, looks at Jack's shotgun, goes to his
car and gets his shotgun to show Jack.
2014 - School goes into lock down, FBI called, Jack hauled off to jail
and never sees his truck or gun again. Counselors called in for
traumatized students and teachers.

Scenario 2: Johnny and Mark get into a fist fight after school.
1957 - Crowd gathers. Mark wins. Johnny and Mark shake hands and end up buddies.
2014 - Police called and SWAT team arrives -- they arrest both Johnny
and Mark. They are both charged with assault and both expelled - even
though Johnny started it.

Scenario 3: Jeffrey will not be still in class, he disrupts other students.
1957 - Jeffrey sent to the Principal's office and given a good
paddling by the Principal. He then returns to class, sits still and
does not disrupt class again.
2014 - Jeffrey is given huge doses of Ritalin. He becomes a zombie. He
is then tested for ADD. The family gets extra money (SSI) from the
government because Jeffrey has a disability.

Scenario 4: Billy breaks a window in his neighbor's car and his Dad gives him a
whipping with his belt.
1957 - Billy is more careful next time, grows up normal, goes to
college and becomes a successful businessman.
2014 - Billy's dad is arrested for child abuse, Billy is removed to
foster care and joins a gang. The state psychologist is told by
Billy's sister that she remembers being spanked herself, and their dad
goes to prison. Billy's mom has an affair with the psychologist.

Scenario 5: Mark gets a headache and takes some aspirin to school.
1957 - Mark shares his aspirin with the Principal out on the smoking dock.
2014 - The police are called and Mark is expelled from school for drug
violations. His car is then searched for drugs and weapons.

Scenario 6: Pedro fails high school English.
1957 - Pedro goes to summer school, passes English and goes to college.
2014 - Pedro's cause is taken up by state. Newspaper articles appear
nationally explaining that teaching English as a requirement for
graduation is racist. ACLU files class action lawsuit against the
state school system and Pedro's English teacher. English is then
banned from core curriculum. Pedro is given his diploma anyway but
ends up mowing lawns for a living because he cannot speak English.

Scenario 7: Johnny takes apart leftover firecrackers from the Fourth of July, puts
them in a model airplane paint bottle and blows up a red ant bed.
1957 - Ants die.
2014 - ATF, Homeland Security and the FBI are all called. Johnny is
charged with domestic terrorism. The FBI investigates his parents -
and all siblings are removed from their home and all computers are
confiscated. Johnny's dad is placed on a terror watch list and is
never allowed to fly again.

Scenario 8: Johnny falls while running during recess and scrapes his knee. He is
found crying by his teacher, Mary. Mary hugs him to comfort him.
1957 – In a short time, Johnny feels better and goes on playing.
2014- Mary is accused of being a sexual predator and loses her job.
She faces 3 years in State Prison. Johnny undergoes 5 years of
therapy.

That sure seems the way things are. All my teachers had standing orders from my parents: If needed, paddle him. He will get the same thing at home too. Let's just say I know they were correct about the at home thing.....

Yea Joe, I graduated HS in 59. Louie Lucas was the algebra teacher and the enforcer/paddler. He wasn't very tall but all the bigger guys feared him and everyone showed him respect.
Someone emailed that to me and I thought it was right on also.

Same here, but your picture looks a lot younger than I do. Of course my eyesight is just as old as I am.
