I live in Ontario and none of my schools did this. I went to private schools, so I am not sure if that is why or if it’s a Canadian thing. I was listening to the radio this morning and they were chatting about electing homecoming kings and queens (we had prom, but no prom royalty).
Apparently the new way to bully is to nominate unpopular/unattractive kids that no one will vote for. The teachers are shutting that down, which makes sense to me. Usually it is pretty clear who the popular group is and which kids are struggling to get through the day.
However, people are arguing that teachers are perpetuating the problem by pointing out that these unpopular kids would never have a chance to win. I see it as the teachers trying to protect them because let’s be real: they are being mocked and they won’t win.
What do you think? Did your school do this?
