Nostalgia, it ain't.
The superintendent of a taxpayer-funded school district in Pennsylvania has banned forks from the high school cafeteria because too many students have been using the utensils to stab each other.
Sto-Rox High School in the gritty Pittsburgh suburb of McKees Rocks is the site of the new fork-free policy, according to local NBC affiliate WPXI.
The superintendent, Frank Dalmas, implemented the policy and other draconian measures last week to keep students in line.
Knives aren't allowed either, although spoons seem to be okay for the time being. High among my reasons for leaving high school early and attending college instead were the freaking race wars. Things got so bad that police were stationed in the cafeteria to ensure that all utensils were put back on the trays. Looks like it's happening again. What a great learning environment!
