Student Suspended For Hugging Friend - November 4th 2011, 12:09 AM

Another story of admin wasting tax dollars on stupid shit..




http://www.myfoxhouston.com/dpps/new...11103_15789200

A 14-year-old Florida student who hugged his friend was suspended as a result of his middle school's zero-tolerance no-hugging policy, WKMG-TV reported Thursday. Nick Martinez said he gave a quick hug to his best friend, a female student, between classes.
The public display of affection was spotted by the principal of Palm Bay's Southwest Middle School, 74 miles (120km) southeast of Orlando. While the principal told WKMG-TV he believed the hug was innocent, he brought the two students to the school's dean, who penalized them with in-school suspensions.
According to the Southwest Middle School's student handbook, students can receive a one-day out-of-school suspension for kissing, while students caught hugging or hand-holding are penalized with a dean's detention or suspension.
The school's strict policy stipulates that there is no difference between an unwanted hug, or sexual harassment, and a hug between friends, WKMG-TV reported.
"A lot of friends are hugging. I just happened to be the one caught doing it," Nick said. "Honestly, I didn't know because I didn't think hugging was a bad thing. I didn't know you could get suspended for it."
Nick's mother, Nancy Crecente, said she plans to ask the school board to change the policy.

Hugging is evil, it corrupts the souls of the young.

Hahahahahahaahahaha What the hell. This is ridiculous. Kinda hysterical. Hugs are good for you.

Are they worried that hugs will lead to a bunch of pregnant middle school girls?

This is why zero tolerance policies are silly. Some hugging is bad... So BAN ALL HUGS FOREVER!!!!!

There is a fine line between protect your students from sexual harassment, and sheltering them from normal sexuality and friendly gestures

I find it sad that this particular school is discouraging a positive sign of affection. It's lazy of the school not to look at things on a case by case basis. I would hope that the student's mother and other parents fight hard to change this policy.

I love that nothing is done about bullying in schools but the minute that two people are caught hugging, that is waaayyyy too fucking far.

More horse shit. I can imagine the what the rest of the rules are like:

1. Eye contact - detention
2. Friendly gestures towards opposite sex - suspension
3. Kissing - public flogging. Upon repeated offence, stoning to death
etc.


"I don't care about politics"
Then politics doesn't care about you either. Truth. You've got to make your voice heard, if you want to be listened to. But that's too logical for some people, so let me go a step further. Not making your voice heard, leaves other people free to hijack it by speaking on your behalf, even if they don't actually give a shit about you. That's politics. So, make your voice heard. That's not a quote from anywhere. That's just me.

There's a story every other month about a student being suspended/expelled for kissing, hand holding etc

What really gets me about these stories is not that the school puts these dumb policies in place, but that they put them in place EVEN when schools show up in the news again and again and again for having similarly moronic policies.

Y U NO LEARN?!


To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never, to forget

Re: Student Suspended For Hugging Friend - November 5th 2011, 08:01 PM

Bullying is hard issue for schools to deal with, even schools this moronic. However, I can only imagine their penalty for bullying would be tossing the students into a pit full of cannibals. Cheating on a test means instant death by firing squad. Kissing results in chopping off the lips of the students involved. Talking back or swearing to teachers means decapitation. I wonder though if they solve bullying by having these ridiculous rules so students would be too afraid to bully?

I've always thought schools want to keep a positive public image. Perhaps these ridiculous rules make the minority of parents happy who dislike public displays of affection. I would like to believe the majority of parents aren't like that, otherwise the school's community is fucked. To me, it shows the school is lazy because they'd rather issue the penalties rather than consider the issues on a case-by-case basis.

I find the rule for kissing and hugging funny because it stated the penalty must be issued by the dean. If that's the case, then the principal may have no authority according to the rule book so he simply becomes someone who snoops around. The principal is also funny because he's trying to save his ass by stating he thought the dean wouldn't penalize the students. If that's the case, then why bring them to the dean in the first place? Just give the students a small warning at the most. Incompetent.

I think they should enforce a no-hugging rule at faculty members' funerals.

Unless a condom is worn underneath the clothing, then it's 99.9%. If the female in question is on birth control, then it's 94.7%. Please include all the facts about hugging in the future.

Hugging is the leading cause in teen pregnancy. We shouldn't be trying to get abortion instated, but get hugging banned instead. Prevention is the best method.

If you, or someone you know engages in hugging regularly, ask a trusted adult for guidance through this dark time in your/their life. Together we can beat hugging.

That's ridiculous. I find it a little awkward when people hug me, but I still hug and get hugged. It's not like the poor kids were making out in the hallways or having sex or anything like that, it was just a friendly hug. What are they going to ban next, handshakes?

Hugging is bad. There should be a 5 foot distance from every person on Earth to prevent any physical contact.

On a serious note, this principle has major issues. A simple hug is not worth a fucking suspension <_< The principle should be fired, or the rules be changed because this is ridiculous.

Actually, anything other than high fives can result in a suspension at my school the new principle thinks anything other than that is gang related.

We have a new principal this year too. The one we had last year cancelled homecoming. At first he was like "No grinding, no this type of dance, don't do this, don't do this, oh you can do this but not this," and then he just cancelled it and refunded everyone's money.

That would be the worst home-coming dance party. For our high-school graduation, the teachers at first told us pretty much what your principal said. However, once we started doing it, the teachers didn't give a shit, they also started dancing. Two of the teachers also started grinding but the others just danced normally. At least you got your money back.

The school's strict policy stipulates that there is no difference between an unwanted hug, or sexual harassment, and a hug between friends, WKMG-TV reported.

How is there no difference between an unwanted hug and a hug between friends? I think if one person in the hug is showing signs of not wanted to be hugged for example, pulling away rather then hugging them back, then it's pretty obvious it's an unwanted hug. What an ridiculous reason to base a policy on.

Damn those hugs and their evilness..

Don't hug. Because you will get pregnant.

Don't hug in the missionary position, don't hug standing up... just don't do it, okay? Promise?

I actually live right near Southwest Middle School. I know many people that attended it. And I don't know the full story because I'm not going to read the article, but basing this opinion on things they don't tell you in news stories, I could kind of understand this kind of policy at that particular school. I had the same policy at my middle school, Central, which is the same county. Southwest Middle School is one of the worst schools around here, when students from the other schools attend an event there they rush them directly from the bus to wherever they're going to be. Parents aren't allowed to drive the kids because they want every student attending the event to be accounted for with basically body guards at all times. It's that bad. Now, I don't agree with suspending a kid for just hugging someone. I'd say at most some sort of minor detention.

I love giving hugs to my friends at school, boy and girl. Gosh, what has happened to our world today? A simple hug is not allowed?

Re: Student Suspended For Hugging Friend - November 15th 2011, 11:19 AM



"I don't care about politics"
Then politics doesn't care about you either. Truth. You've got to make your voice heard, if you want to be listened to. But that's too logical for some people, so let me go a step further. Not making your voice heard, leaves other people free to hijack it by speaking on your behalf, even if they don't actually give a shit about you. That's politics. So, make your voice heard. That's not a quote from anywhere. That's just me.
