MS & HS teachers, what % of your students do you think smoke?
« on: October 07, 2011, 10:58:45 am »
The other thread got me wondering. What percentage of your students do you think smoke on at least a weekly basis? In my case, if I had to hazarad a guess (and I do live right beside my school), I'd say:

Middle school: less than 5%
Academic high school: 15%
Vocational high school: 40%

btw, I'd like to start a poll but can't figure out how.

In middle school, I'd say around 15-20% of the male 3rd years smoke. For second years anywhere from 5-15% and I think for first years it's under 5%.

To make it more interesting, how many are smoking and having sex?  I stayed at a love hotel in between moves and shocked at how many students I saw coming in and out.  One was at least in middle school.

Add a category .......... who cares.  If they want to smoke themselves to death, that is their choice. As a NSET, I doubt you can make a difference in this one. Sorry to say this but it is the truth.
There is no known medical cure for stupidity!

I'd say around 10 to 15 percent of the HS students I knew smoked.  I would also say that thirty plus percent are likely having intimate relations with the opposite sex.

My high schoolers can be regularly found turning the bathroom at the local bowling alley into a kind of giant nicotine bong. In a small countryside town, what else is there to do? It's illicit (for them), therefore cool, and it goes well with booze which is also illicit for them. Probably why I always encounter them smoking down by the river when I'm staggering home, cigarette in hand, of an evening.
In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.

We are not "guests" in Korea. Korea didn't invite us over for Pimms in the garden. We are paid employees.

My HS students think it's okay to come to class 15 minutes late smelling like smoke and thinking nothing of it. They also tend to get caught on school property smoking in school uniform... not the smartest move.
