Students who have a record of violence, intimidation and causing problems should be removed from the school and put in an alternative education
program. These kids are given way too many chances until one day they either assault a teacher or student, they're handcuffed and put in jail. The
biggest problem in schools today is students lack consequences for poor and disrespectful behavior.
Back when corporal punishment was allowed in schools, students knew there was a line they couldn't cross. Like it or not, the paddle was a deterrent
and kept order in the class room. Parents back in the day supported the teachers and didn't coddle their kids when they got into trouble at school.
Most kids back then wouldn't dare tell their parents they got in trouble at school or they would have ended up being disciplined at home and grounded
for two weeks!
The majority of teens lie to their parent to get out of trouble. Today many parents believe their kids when they go home and tell them "my teacher is
picking on me!" If a student feels a teacher is always on his or her case there's a simple reason for it. They're not on task or disrupting the
class! (A disruptive class is not an environment conducive to learning).
It's just ridiculous how parents think their kids are angels and their son or daughter would never lie to get out of trouble. We were all teens at
one time, we know how that works.
If it were up to me, kids who chronically disrupt classes or are intimidating or bullying other students, they would be removed out of class for 1
week and put into a boot camp setting. I would hire a retired drill sergeant. These kids would have to wake up at 6am and report to a facility where
they would be drilled to do calisthenics, clean the school bathrooms, and counseled about the importance of education and respecting others. I would
have them run their tails off, do push-ups etc. and have counseling breaks every couple of hours. It would be a 10hr day for them.
Unfortunately, that's considerd cruel and unusual punishment. WHAT? That's what I experienced in my gym class and when I had to get in shape to play
on my high school football team! I can guarantee after a week of exhausting but beneficial exercising and counseling, these kids would return to the
classroom with a much needed attitude adjustment.
Today, our government has given more rights to children than their parents and school officials. Most people don't know this, but if an emotional
support student came to school with a knife and was threatening a student with it, there's a very good chance the student would remain in school.
Current laws restrict schools from dealing with students who have mental health problems even if they're a danger to others in the classroom. How
would you feel if you knew your son or daughter sat next to or was in a classroom with a student who could lash out and assault them at anytime? Yet
you couldn't do nothing about it!
Laws Limit Options When a Student Is Mentally Ill
