Are parents really that stupid?

In our district the kids/parents have a choice of middle schools, and then they get to choose which high school. There are different draws for each school including size, classes offered, location, etc.

Some of the parents are choosing one middle school over the other because they believe it to be drug and sex free. REALLY? a whole middle school that is drug free????  Are they that that naive?

do you believe there is really a middle school out there that is 100% drug/sex free???  (well maybe military school)

  • There is no such school, not stupid but very naive and irrational.

  • No if that were so we are living in a perfect world. They are only setting theirselves up for a disaster believing that.

  • As long as you have drugs you will find it in the schools....and as long as people have sex organs you will find sex in schools. The only real way to protect your child is to lock them up and watch them every second. The only realistic way to help your children make the right choices and say no, to talk to them and set a good example for them to follow. The bottom line is, kids will do what kids do, with any luck if you raise them right they'll resist.

  • Is there a particular reason they think that school is drug/sex free? While my town only has one middle school and one highschool (public anyway, there's also two catholic highschools in town) the next town over always had a better reputation because the families who live there typically have higher incomes so many people assumed the highschool was safer, and while my highschool was well known for pot smoking and drinking the next town over had a serious problem with cocaine and pills.
