We’ve all heard the phrase “the rules don’t apply to me.”
We’ve all learned the hard way that, yes, they do.
America’s college and university leaders have established rather strict — and necessary — rules of conduct this fall in an effort to contain the spread of coronavirus on their campuses.
And they should be.
So, a reminder to the parents of college and university students: Don’t complain if your son or daughter gets caught doing something they shouldn’t have and get suspended as a result. Your kids knew the rules (and if they didn’t, they should’ve) and chose to break them.
And a similar reminder to the students: If you don’t like a certain rule, work to change it. But for as long as the rule remains in effect, you will follow it.
End of story.
