What School Was Like in the ’80s vs. Today
Every generation is different, especially when it comes to youthful trends. And the gap that exists between kids who went to middle school during the 80s and kids who attended school in the 90s and beyond is no different. In fact, some of the things that 80s kids got away with have become downright illegal today.
1. Make Ashtrays in Art Class
Ah, different times. In the 80s, it seemed that everyone at least knew someone who smoked—making arts and crafts time in school a bit more adventurous than it is today. One common gift that could be made and sent home to mom and dad was the simple ashtray. (Perhaps it was because they were both easy to make, and practical!). However, due to the fact that this undoubtedly inspired poor future behavior, and that fewer parents smoke today, this activity has faded out.
