According to this article in the Star Tribune, a t-shirt designed by the class of 2009 at Eagan High School has the administration’s blood pressure rising — for no real good reason.
The t-shirt design which allegedly says, “Kiss Our Class Goodbye” — 09 was previously labeled as inappropriate by the administration and now that the Junior class has continued on with the ordering, against the wishes of people who are apparently too out of touch with reality, those wearing the shirts will be considered as exhibiting “willful insubordination” by school officials — whatever that means.
Now, to me, this is absolutely nothing like the Mankato High School t-shirts that are referenced in the Star Tribune article which are “.08 (We’re over the limit)”. You can check out more information on the Mankato shirts here at KSTP or here on WCCO.
Those shirts are a little more blatantly inappropriate for school wear although still clever enough that I have to at least respect the idea. I don’t condone wearing drug or alcohol related t-shirts in any classroom environment but to compare those shirts to the “Kiss Our Class Goodbye” design idea is simply asinine.
I’m not a parent but do remember high school well and just don’t see what the big deal is about the Eagan High Shirts. If you are a parent or you’re a humorless adult who feels that the t-shirts in Eagan are so horrendous I’d love to hear what you have to say below in the comment section.
