Portland school bans hugging fearing that might be spiraling out of control


Oregon's woman's report --


These so-called "hug ban" which was featured in a recent USA Today article regarding a trend of placing restrictions on disruptive behavior in public schools such as hugging.

Alison Couch, principal of West Sylvian Middle School issued a ban because hugging was so disruptive as students could not pass each other in the hallway without a hug which often made them late for class.

Some people found that the activity of running down the hallway to meet a friend and greet them with a hug was intolerable. yes, they should have walked instead... much safer.

"While some may welcome the new ban as a way to ensure students are in an environment that cultivates learning, it concerns me that the disruptive behavior, tardiness and mocking spiraled out of control so quickly.


Sure, we know how it starts, we've seen it all before.

First, it's just two students innocently waving at each other at the end of the hallway

After awhile, that could lead to actually making eye contact when passing in the hallway

And that could lead to a primitive form of communication known as speaking to another human without the aid of an electronic device, such as a keyboard or a cell phone.

From there, a friendship could actually develop and if not careful, one could find themselves being best friends.

At that point, the innocent way back in the hallway turns into a highly disruptive hug upon greeting each other there by pursuing chaos and total disorder within the whole school system.

Imagine a system where we communicate face-to-face and how to totally change our society.

Yes, we should definitely stop this practice at once.

Hugs are so disruptive to the education of these students it must be banned immediately. Showing signs of friendship should be stopped at all cost. It was so much easier and less disruptive ten years ago when kids just shot each other.

Didja ever stop to wonder what example is being set by a principal who wears see-through clothing?

you are correct Oregon guy...

the principal is wearing a white translucent shirt with a black bra and she's concerned that hugging is distracting?

IN military boot camp the very first thing they do, to teach you to kill, is make you stand with eyes to the front, and BAN any talking or eye contact with the other recruits.
