Bring Sexy Back With Justin Timberlake At American Airlines Center, Play Aston Martin Music With Rick Ross At Music Hall At Fair Park And Nerd Out At Con Of Thrones 2018.

Nobody enjoyed being in high school and, really, being angsty is one of the few enjoyable things about being a teenager in high school.

But students in the Central Pennsylvania School District won’t even have that as they are no longer allowed to even display any sort of negative attitude while on campus. The district’s new policy requires all students to smile in the hallway, and, if they aren’t smiling they have to go to the counselor to talk about their problems.

While this rule might get more students to seek the help of a guidance counselor, there has been a lot of understandable back lash. One mom went as far as pulling her 15-year-old daughter out the high school to take classes online instead because of how ridiculous the rule is.

We wish the students in that district the best of luck in the upcoming school year as there will no doubt be all sorts of challenges to the policy because — teenagers get sad sometimes. Damn.

No one will be forcing you to smile this week, but it’ll be hard not to if you head out to some of the events happening in Dallas this week.
