I am starting to get very frustrated at our district leaders and school administers. Anyone who throws the first punch should automatically be suspended for 10 days. Second altercation should be expulsion. Hazing should be no exception to this rule. Its because of our leaders not coming down hard that the this now goes on to these levels. You will always have parents that are dumb asses, but at least you can control whether their kids will be with ours. Its time for our leaders to take a stand instead of sitting together and keep pushing everything under the rug.

Learned behavior begins way before secondary education. While I'm not siding with administration I have to believe that parenting has to be questioned in these situations also. I think the actions of students has been deplorable and the inaction of administration, in the case of hazing, is unfortunate for the district.
