Dude.

Dude.

I go to two community colleges. One of them is effectively a trade school. They teach machining, welding, cooking, dental hygiene and, like, a couple other trade school things. The other one mostly teaches art and prereqs for going to a 4-year.

The art school is having a prom.

I've heard people my age gripe about kids and how inappropriate they are and how everything is different than when they went to school. Know what's different? From the top down, administrators are infantilizing the ever-loving shit out of students. There's this assumption they can't fuckin' hang so they teach to the lowest common denominator.

They're doing no one any favors.
