What's going on at your school still doesn't amount to a ban on water bottles, like is being discussed. Yeah, what the teacher did is stupid, but I'm sure you're exaggerating it. Kids don't' go from 8am-lunch of straight class. I'm sure the kids get a chance for a drink. The teacher probably just doesn't allow them to take out the bottles, which is far from an all out ban.

On topic - this is utterly ridiculous. A sealed water bottle? How is a student going to get alcohol in there? Is alcohol a huge problem in public schools now, or is this just more pre-crime prevention/conditioning?
idk, when i went to school we were constantly getting plastered and the water bottle was the best way to do it.

This is about money and contracts.
Schools generally have contract with botters like Pepsi or Coke. As part of the contract, other bottelers products are not allowed. I ran into this when working concessions at my kids high school. We had to buy the contracted brands water at the store and bring it to sell. We could have had a thousand bottles dontated, but if it were the wrong brand, no go.
School. A great place to start learning that corporate America is who really controls you and what you are allowed to do.
