As a lunch lady at Grand Heights High School, I would like to start out by saying that it is my duty as a lunch lady to make sure kiddies make healthy choices. I believe this recent MySpace scandal brings great disgrace to the student body and therefore a very poor choice made by one of our former students. Although people have a right to freedom of press, these kids have gone too far. Anything that is publicly published for millions to see is subject to inspection by administration. These photos promote drug use and even display nudity. All of those things, especially drug use, are banned in school as well as in the community. Heck, if kids are drinking that alcohol these days they might as well be eating ten snicker bars-very unhealthy. Goodness, in my day we would never eat those blasted things.
The Grand Heights faculty has taken the proper procedures in assuring the student responsible for the MySpace scandal is punished. These photos and commentaries are a great offense for many students and numerous other people, including me. I saw this sweet boy who always says 'thank you' in the lunch line just baring is hiney to the world. Repulsive! The recent events have also upset many students. I can tell because the children haven't been eating their vegetables as they use to. Now that says something. I also believe that anything that is out for the public to see is up for scrutiny by peers, school, and the workplace. MySpace is definitely not a place for drug promotion and pornographic material since millions can access the page; our students need to recognize that. Now eat your peas.
