So some parents are upset because a San Diego school decided to teach its students about the dangers of drinking and driving.
The police went into a class, and said two of the students had died in a drinking and driving accident. The students weren’t told for two hours that it was a lie (you can view the ABC news video story here).
While the students interviewed said it will make them think twice, some parents think it went overboard.
I disagree with the parents. If it makes the students think, then it’s effective. Students are smarter, and having a skit or a mock accident won’t get to them anymore. But the next time one of them is drinking, they may think of how they felt this day before they drive home.
This sends a strong message. And that’s a good thing.
