This Student Council Lacks Real Power
It never occurred to me in middle or high school, but our student councils did nothing. They wielded no power. It was one more thing to put on your college applications to make yourself look like a go getter. You'd think that in the history of the U.S. there would have been one student council in one city that managed to exploit an old zoning ordinance and gain control of their school district and wreck havoc, or at the very least change their school's mascot to The Ghostbusters or Power Rangers, but it's not something I've ever come across in the news of the weird section of the newspaper.
