I think that the article we read in class was interesting. Teens were drinking outside of school and were caught and punished by the police and their parents. They were also punished in school for drinking outside of school. I think this was wrong and I know the principal was trying to make a point that teen drinking won't be tolerated. I think if the teens would already were punished by higher authorities such as the police the school shouldn't even worry about it because the problem is already being dealt with. I think that if the principal really wanted to advocate on why teen drinking was bad then he could have made assemblies and have people talk to students and/or provide counseling to those who need help. I think that teen drinking should be punished but if it's already being handled by the police the school shouldn't get involved unless the drinking was involved on school property.
