Lesson to schoolchildren: don't do anything, just follow orders
Here is another rather depressing little article about a teenage kid that tried to help a classmate suffering from an asthma attack. He was suspended from school because the teacher ordered him and all others to stay still and not help. The young man disobeyed his teacher and added in some profanity for good measure (as I would have), and was penalized for it. This is the ultimate case of a teacher trying to instill in her students blind obedience to official protocol, instead of critical thought and solidarity with others.
