Hell, in high school, we kids loved any opportunity to get out of class for a bit. Fire drills, pep rally's, smoking a cig between classes, etc. So, I can't blame a good amount of these kids who are doing this just to get out of class for a bit. You KNOW there's kids who are doing it for precisely this reason.
I don't really care. At least they're not destroying property, intimidating teachers, or teachers hitting kids over the head with bike locks and so on.
I do think that this was more important to people on Twitter and Facebook than anybody else.
