Attempting to push away that frustratingly involved lip-locked couple off a locker and keeping them away long enough to get the books needed and get to class can be frustrating.

In the midst of hormones, emotions, and trying to find love, teenagers are the number one culprits when it comes to publicly displaying affection.

School is a place for learning and gaining knowledge. It is not a replacement of the bedroom, contrary to many high school couple’s beliefs. Although this misconception is totally the fault of the high schoolers, much of blame lies on the administration.

Watching students suck off each other’s faces is something administrators deal with on a daily basis, so what gives them the right to stop it? It is plain and simple: respect. Being respectful of your surroundings is something that teenagers struggle with.

If a teacher or administrator is stopping a couple and having an expression of disgust it is purely justifiable to stop out of respect for your elders. Keep the private life private.

The real question that comes to mind is, ‘Is this how your parents brought you up?’ The image being brought is not one that people should have years after the relationship has ended. School is a place for learning, but it is also a place where people see, talk, and spread information. Making sure the wrong things are not spread is the key.

There is always a time and place for everything, and school is not the time nor the place for public displays of affection.
