I was watching a medicore at best sindicated sitcom today and they had a B plot that revolved around the hall monitor. This has been a sitcom staple for my entire life. But I never went to a school that had a hall monitor. Granted, my schools also had science text books that talked about how one day man will walk on the moon. But I don’t recall any friends ever having hall monitor stories. Were there schools that actually had these? And did they always get power hungry before eventually receiving sweet and possibly even ironic justice? And, was there an inevitable move where the prinipal would make the school’s noted trouble maker the hall monitor followed by him not taking his or her job responsibilities seriously, but eventually becoming an ali of the principal?
