Re: “Party 2 Nite. R U Going?

What I don't understand is why Berkeley High is the only one getting all these "lectures" when the writer herself mentioned that both Albany and El cerrito high also go to these parties. It's not just Berkeley High. I think the only reason Berkeley High is getting the spotlight is because of the fact that it's in Berkeley which might seem like a "scary" place for people who do not go there often, as opposed to El cerrito and Albany, which are located in i guess "safer" areas.

What i'm trying to get at is that instead of pointing fingers at a certain school try looking at the bigger picture-Basically 99% of high schools have students who throw parties, so try and solve the problems that happen at parties in as many high schools as you can. You meaning parents and students. Parents can teach their kids to be responsible, and if you know your kid goes to parties then why not set a schedule for when to pick them up instead of letting them roam the streets, possibly causing problems? And why not check what they are taking with them (i.e. weapons, etc)? All I am saying is that maybe if you cared about your children you would be curious as to what they are doing when going to parties or whatever they are doing instead of just letting them do things you probably know that they are doing. And students, me being one, just use your street smarts and don't get yourself caught in the wrong place at the wrong time. Go to parties with several friends, don't bring valuables other than your cell phone (and keep it in a safe place when you're there, especially if it's a valuable phone like an iphone or something), and make sure you have at least one sober friend if you are going to get drunk/high etc.

Also, a comment for the writer, please try to make the "characters" less evident and obvious as to who they are. The people who go to Berkeley High who go to parties probably knew who the characters actually were in the article because of the way you described them.
