I work at a school that requires uniforms. If kids show up out of uniform, they are intercepted by the security people on the way through the gates, and sent to get a change of clothes. They are supposed wash the clothes at home and bring them back the next day.
So this morning one of the AP’s and the principal were discussing what to do about the problem. I butted in and suggested providing them jumpsuits with a big PROPERTY OF LAUSD stenciled across the back.
Neither one of them blinked an eye.
A couple of weeks ago, a teacher came running up to me, saying “Did you see him? He just ran this way. Hispanic boy, about medium height, black hair, wearing blue slacks and a white shirt”.
He wasn’t kidding. I looked around, and saw about 80 kids in the hallway that fit that exact description.
Is it me?
