Vaping Not a Big Problem at ETHS
An April 2 article in the New York Times describes a nationwide “vaping explosion” in schools. It details how a high school in California closed bathrooms and placed monitors near the doors of those that remained open during lunch to try and keep students from vaping. Other schools are increasing suspensions and expulsions, even conducting mandatory drug tests on students found with “Juuls” or other e-cigarettes. New Trier Township High School is considering installing vapor detectors in bathrooms and asking police to write citations for teens found with e-cigarettes. At Evanston Township High School, none of these actions is being considered.  Vaping does not appear to be a big problem.
