Update on Northbrook
The GlenBrook hazing incident made CNN again today when the school board announced 10-day suspensions for around 30 students. They are recommending expulsion for these students as well. No prom, no graduation, no extracurriculars, no school. They'll have to graduate from an "alternative school," one without as nearly a sterling reputation as GlenBrook North. So, of course, one of the parents of the suspended students is suing the school.
Criminal charges are still pending.
I don't know why this whole thing makes me so mad. It just does. I am a bit befuddled as to why some people think that these girls should get away with no tarnish on their academic reputations. Please explain this to me, if you're one of them.
