    School penalizes students for high fives, hugs

    VIENNA, Va. - A rule against physical contact at a Fairfax County middle school is so strict that students can be sent to the principal's office for hugging, holding hands or even high-fiving.
    Unlike some schools in the Washington area, which ban fighting or inappropriate touching, Kilmer Middle School in Vienna bans all touching — and that has some parents lobbying for a change.
    Hugging was Hal Beaulieu's crime when he sat next to his girlfriend at lunch a few months ago and put his arm around her shoulder. He was given a warning, but told that repeat missteps could lead to detention.

    Unbelievable.....

    when i was still teaching, my principal tried to institute a similar rule. told us that we had to be "consistent" in enforcing it.

    per her, the consequences were five steps; verbal warning, written note home, phone call home, detention, and then a referral to an administrator for each instance.

    within two weeks, the same principal was lambasting teachers at a staff meeting about the increase in referrals to the office, and our lack of "classroom management skills."

    in order to retain my sanity, i gave up teaching at the end of that school year. it wasn't the kids driving me crazy, it was the administrators.
