    Angry parents demanded the resignation of a California high school vice principal Tuesday because she lifted the skirts of teenage girls at a dance in front of men and male classmates to make sure they were wearing "appropriate" underwear.

    Parents at Rancho Bernardo High School in suburban San Diego say the vice principal, Rita Wilson, made the girls prove that they were not wearing thong underwear before they were allowed into the dance on Friday.

    In some cases, said Rancho Bernardo parent Kim Teal, girls also were made to partially undress if Wilson or another teacher suspected that they weren't wearing bras.

    In contrast to two years ago, when half of those surveyed were wrong, a majority, 54 percent, answered correctly when asked how long it takes the Earth to orbit the sun. (One year.)

    It's frightening that a school would put such efforts into underware inspections. It's also frightening that people don't understand simple things.

    Ah well. It's entertaining! [img]smile.gif[/img]

    Sounds like someone is on a twisted mission there. [img]graemlins/wtf.gif[/img] Who cares if they wear thongs?... except for their boyfriends... [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    My question is this:

    In fairness to the sexes... did they check the guys' underwear too??

    The theme of the dance was something like, "Throughout history" and people came dressed in costume from various eras.

    My understanding of it was that the "no thong" dress code was something everyone knew coming into the dance.

    If you have a dress code, you have to expect it to be enforced. Of course, they could have found a more tactful way of doing so, but still...

    They have no business dictating what they can't see. If you had to lift the skirt to see, then it wasn't inappropriate. And if the skirt was short enough to see the thong, then the thong wasn't the problem!!!

    There is a need to establish codes and draw lines, but they picked a really, really stupid way to do it. They are SCREWED, and if it's true, the VP and any teachers are so out of a job.

    I personally don't think HS students, much less JR HS students, should be wearing thongs, but it's ultimately the parent's call to make. Short skirts, see through shirts, inappropriate logos or sayings, I don't have a problem with schools taking a stand on what's visible. But, like I said, if you can see the thong, then the problem ain't the thong.

    Oh, and they were also checking bras to make sure the girls had them on

    MOUNT LEBANON, Pennsylvania (AP) -- A Pennsylvania school suspended an 11-year-old girl for drawing two teachers with arrows through their heads, saying the stick figures were more death threat than doodle.

    Becca Johnson, an honor-roll sixth-grader at Mellon Middle School, drew the picture on the back of a vocabulary test on which she had gotten a D.

    "That's my way of saying I'm angry," Becca said, adding she meant no harm to the teachers.

    The stick figures, on a crudely drawn gallows with arrows in their heads, had the names of Becca's teacher and a substitute teacher written underneath. Another teacher spotted the doodle in the girl's binder Tuesday and reported it, prompting the three-day suspension.

    Becca's parents, Philip and Barbara Johnson, denied the school's contention the drawings were "terrorist threats."

    "She had done poorly on a test that was handed back to her. We've always told her that you can't take your feelings out on your teacher, so write about it or draw it, as a catharsis," Barbara Johnson said.

    She accused the school of applying a zero-tolerance policy that "does away with due process and inflicts a penalty without a hearing or investigation."

    The district said its zero-tolerance policy applies only to gun or drug possession, and denied that no investigation was done.

    "All I can say is that when we have taken action related to the activities of students in the schools, we have done so after a thorough investigation," Mount Lebanon School District Superintendent Glenn Smartschan said.
