Boca Raton has decided to lessen the ‘sentence’ when a student is caught swearing. Boca Raton stated that because students look to TV for learning grammar and etiquette (yes, you read that right), they find it appropriate to let the children swear according to Schnitt on his afternoon radio broadcast. Swearing like their favorite "Friends" stars is apparently how to express anger, disappointment, and joy as opposed to normal, acceptable words.
"Shit, I forgot my books!" would’ve have called for a severe penalty at the old, uncool school while the new, hip school will let them off the hook with a minor in-school suspension. However, if the student uses the inappropriate words inappropriately, they will be penalized (that hurts my brain).
"As long as you're not saying it in a hostile way, you're just giving your opinion," freshman Mallory Bauer said. "People say 'Oh, damn, I forgot my homework.' These words aren't that bad to me."
Umm, yea. Sure, this is exactly the point of entitlement. It seems as if Mallory believes that Mallory is in charge, Mallory should dictate the rules. I bet you if you asked Mallory who John Roberts is, she’d probably say, "like…. Is that one of those damned Beatles?"
