Wow. And I thought my high-school was bad. I went to a private all-boys catholic school. Of course now it is co-ed. But over there you were FORCED to get a tardy slip even if you had to leave class to use the restroom or for any reason whatsoever. If you racked up enough tardy slips you'd get Saturday detention.

Oh and my personal favorite. This one particular theology teacher I had. If you acted up in his class he'd say "go to hell". Whereas you would be made to stand in the back of the class next to a 'hell' shrine complete with paper mache flames and a paper mache devil and then some. I swear to God I am not making this up.

The school had some really wacky policies. But THIS beats the hell out of me. What are they going to come up with next?

No eye contact, and no talking to unless spoken to first?

This is bad because even though this rule is stupid kids see one stupid rule and assume therefor all rules are stupid.

This is really creepy.
In protest the kid's should have an all-school group hug.
