Police have asked schools across London to warn pupils about illegal raves after the deaths of two teenagers with links to Croydon.Is that going to be part of social studies? English? Maths?
In the letter, sent to secondary schools, sixth-form colleges and pupil referral units, Commander Letchford said: "As we approach the summer holiday period, some students may be considering their options to relieve exam pressure and may be attracted by the lure of an event such as a rave.
"It is important that those of us with responsibility for safeguarding young people do all in our power to prevent a further tragedy. The Metropolitan Police Service seeks your assistance with this by asking you to address your students, and their parents, on the dangers of attending such events."If they haven’t figured out, from the headlines about the deaths, that it’s a risky choice, is the school going to be able to help?
And if they are the sort to take drugs & indulge in illegal raves (that often turn into mini-riots), why would we – meaning, we as a society – want to preserve their lives?
Our gene pool is better off for this dose of music-associated chlorine.
