Airing your dirty laundry is now a social media bullying tactic. Schools across the country have taken initiative to try and reduce student absenteeism and bullying by putting laundromats on school grounds.
At Westside High School in Newark, N.J., Principal Akbar Cook says a lack of clean clothes contributed to 85 percent of students at his school being absent three to five days a month, reports CBS.
“They were being bullied and it wasn’t just in the building, it was on Snapchat,” Cook reports. “So you go home and you couldn’t even escape it if you were on social media.”
The solution for many students to avoid the bullying is to skip school altogether.
