Hazing at Palo Alto High School
Original post made by Bob Wenzlau on Dec 5, 2007
While no one can know the extent of the hazing problem, we were struck by an apparent tolerating attitude of "Boys will be boys". The administration and parents should support their captains to establish new traditions that can replace the hazing. Great traditions for teams are important and can exist without hazing -- fortunately this seems to be the norm at Paly. Introducing new traditions can also replace the aligned temptation for teen drinking.
Though this story cast a shadow over a sensational season the football team had, I am confident that the teams can address these problems with the proper support from parents and administration. Go Vikings!
