Prom != Booze

Finally! Evidence that a school administration is thinking with their brains and not their egos. A school in northern Michigan is requiring breathalizers before getting into prom this year.

This makes so much sense it hurts, which is why I’m surprised to see it coming from the US’s secondary educational system. I didn’t drink a drop until I graduated from high school, something I’m very proud of. I don’t think high schoolers are very smart when it comes to drinking: getting smashed in the middle of a field and driving home isn’t a smart thing. On the other hand, at college, getting smashed at a local bar and walking two blocks home is usually pretty safe. I can only hope more schools do this.
