OUR VIEW: Penalty fits but where's the parents?

(Continued)

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — It’s a learning experience for all involved. The seven were disciplined and, using the team concept as a blueprint, a portion of that penalty extended to the team. Their teammates learned that misbehaving while representing their school will have severe repercussions. Meanwhile, players on the JV get a chance to see a higher caliber of play.

There is plenty for the adults to learn from this as well. The district, to its credit, stepped up to the plate. It was announced at the last board of education meeting that three more chaperones would be accompanying .... The district response should be used as the framework for other school districts facing similar situations.

As long as the district adheres to its own policy, we see no reason not to continue these excursions. More importantly, we hope that everyone involved in the Myrtle Beach disaster has learned a very important lesson.
