Sociologists recognize norms in two different categories; formal and informal. These formal and informal categories govern every culture's daily activities. If you were asked to temporarily take the position of a high school principal, from a sociological perspective, what norms would you want to govern the student's behavior? Include the type of norm you would suggest and provide examples. How might these norms differ from those appropriate for college students?
