    So the "Renaissance" High School is discouraging budding entrepreneurs.

    The administration probably thinks capitalism is evil.

    They always have
    Blackjack 25c rounds, poker 50c rounds, even speed-chess with a 1$ buy-in were all things i got in trouble for and that was before school not taking time outta class.

    Interesting to note which off-limits entrepreneurial activities in the bathroom are applauded here, apparently barber is good, but selling Marijuana is not.

    Wonder what "our" stance on selling cheat sheets or handies is...

    Pssst. I think that is known as gambling. But you didn't hear that from me.

    I was the candy man in junior high. Lol made $5-$7 profit per day peddling candy and gum. Later I sold lightbulbs door to door. Everyone back then had burned out light bulbs that needed replacing. I paid a dollar for a four pack and sold them for two dollars for a two pack. Made about $200 a week doing that for a while back in the early 80s. Learned about business!

    if the kid is sanitizing the shears between cuts and the comb, who cares? Leave him be! He’ll feed himself for life, isn’t that what we want?

    I did that too. I used to get 1000 pc. bags of Jolly Ranchers for 0.8 cents per piece and I sold them for 25 cents per piece. Usually sold a bag per week.

    You forgot sweeping up the hair - why should the school subsidize his janitorial needs?

    Probably prefer him outside selling drugs. Easier to ignore that.
