Parents Just Don't Understand

school busIn the latest files of WTF?, two Columbia, S.C., teenagers were expelled for making out on a school bus, the Associated Press reported.

Dominique Goyner and his ladyfriend got it on for an estimated two minutes, according to Dominique's mother, Jody Free. She said the kissing hardly qualifies as “sexual misconduct.” Dominique planned to attend a military academy after graduation.

The families of both teens are fighting the decision (thank goodness!). The statement from Theresa Riley, spokeswoman for the school district:

“The district does not discuss disciplinary action taken against individual students because of the confidentiality rights of students. Generally speaking, incidents of this nature are investigated by the appropriate school administrators, and students are disciplined according to board policy JICDA Code of Conduct. Rules of student conduct and consequences for violations are necessary for the orderly operation of the district’s schools and buses. The district stands firmly by any decisions made by the district administration and school board in student discipline matters.”

Blah blah blah, why are some people so square?
