No being drunk on campus


The editorial board at the Appleton Post Crescent apparently had nothing better to write about.

It seems pretty obvious that students under age 21 aren’t allowed to drink on school grounds. However, they can drink alcohol at a school event, if accompanied by a parent, guardian or spouse who has reached the legal age.

There is no law prohibiting underage students from coming to school inebriated if the drinking occurred elsewhere.

This seems like a big gap in a law that should provide for sober campuses and school events, such as school dances and football games.

State Sen. Neal Kedzie, R-Elkhorn, has the right idea in proposing a bill that would ban anyone under 21 from being on school grounds, even if they’ve had the drink legally.

Notwithstanding the embarrassing typo (in bold), what does this law provide mean? If you’ve had a drink of wine with your parents at a restaurant you should stay with them until your BAC is 0.0?

    It would be swell if Universities provided free breathalyzers to students who could drive.
