owch, took a stab at my job there. no worries, i do work for FCPS. you should too, they have great benefits. And if i didnt work for FCPS, why the hell would i be going to the admin center? http://www.fairfaxunderground.com/forum/read/2/37456/37569.html
anyway, a lot of parents arent that good at being parents. some parents honestly dont care or dont get involved with their kids' activities. other parents buy their kids alcohol/cigarettes.
other parents dont want to get involed with the school so they dont help at the grad party.
on your first point, she could have been anywhere from .02-.08 due to VA's no tolerance laws.
The 20-y-o could have been dropping them off. but yes they do check ppl's names on the list and only seniors can get tickets. I know some schools also call home if you leave before the thing is over.
"expect students to go to the grad party..." Well guess what, not all students go. not all students are law-abiding. some students will feel like geting totally wasted instead of going. or get wasted and then go liek these people. For some reason the graduation finishes at 5:00 or earlier and the school sponsored party doesnt start until 11:00.
I heard that in FFX cnty, on average on the weekend, 1 in 10 drivers is drunk driving. 40% of those are teens. So yes,
i expect that after graduation or similar large event requireing celebration, that some .high school students will be getting drunk and or driving drunk.
