Students going steady expelled in New Jersey
FROM COLUMBIA FEATURES/UNDER TWENTY – In a New Jersey high school students have been told that if they go steady they will be expelled from school. This regulation was established by a priest who is both head of a parochial high school and of a parish.
Going steady was defined as dating one person to the exclusion of all others. The reason for the restriction was that going steady led to moral problems and moral decisions which students were not yet ready to cope with.
Under Twenty asked a number of high school students (not attending the school) how they felt about the matter.
Almost without exception they felt the regulation would do more harm than good.
A 15-year-old junior said, “I have never gone steady and I don’t expect to for awhile. If I were threatened with being expelled I would feel my personal rights were being taken away from me and I think I’d be inclined to go steady just to prove the point.”
“I think it’s wrong,” was a 15-year-old girl’s answer. “The kids will do what is right or what is wrong whether they are going steady or not. A restriction on going steady isn’t going to change a person’s sense of right and wrong.”
“In my opinion,” said a 17-year-old girl, “the rule will do more harm than good. I think kids who are going steady will continue to do so, only they’ll sneak instead of doing it penly. You can’t keep boys and girls apart by such a rule. If they want to get together and go steady they will.”
A high school senior boy said, “Going steady doesn’t mean the same thing to everybody. Too many grownups think that if a guy dates a girl for two or three weeks, that’s going steady. The kids who really go steady for a long, long time are few and far between. Anybody looking for trouble will find it whether they are going steady or not. It won’t stop steady dating any more than prohibition stopped people from drinking.”
