At a dance for middle school honors students in Mount Vernon, Washington, a girl was beaten unconscious by other girls. The Seattle Times quotes Kevin Tate, a Mount Vernon School District spokesman, who says a principal broke up the fight, once she realized the girls were kicking the fallen victim, not break dancing.
About 150 students attended the dance, Tate said. All had to meet academic and behavioral standards to be invited.
“To go to the dance you have to be on an honor level. Your grades have to be up and you can’t have many poor-choice slips,” he said.
“Poor-choice slips.” It’s a new euphemism for me.
