What has happened to accountability? Today's youth are not being held responsible for their choices. It is time for them to realize the extent of damage done through deliberate intent or through carelessness. Restitution should not be a matter for the School's insurance. It has become too easy for our children to say, "These things happen." or "Dad will pay for it," or " That's what insurance is for." This was a SCHOOL activity and school is for teaching and learning. This is a teachable event. Most of our High School students have financial resources of their own. It is time to let them feel the direct impact of their actions and be responsible for covering the cost of repairs whenever damage is done.
