Jackie Jacks and Charla Zizzo, both 15, touched off a rebellion in their swim class at Los Gatos (Ca.) High School when they refused to enter the pool on a cool Monday morning last month. The entire class of 30 sophomore girls joined in, protesting that the 10 minutes they are allotted is not enough time to change, dry their hair, and put on their makeup. Principal Ted Simonson quashed the insurrection by dropping the students' grades in the class by two full letters.
