I don't have any info on who to call..but I want to say that I think THIS is a HUGE problem with the schools everywhere.
My husband works for the govt. every few years we have to move to a new area. This is the 3rd school my girls 10/12 have been in. My girls are very
well behaved, have honors at school, and are never in trouble with friends or teachers. The problems we see at each school are the same. 1/2 of the
kids in their classes are pure trouble makers..lousy kids that make trouble, cause class disruption for teachers and other students that are there to
learn. I just went to a parent teacher conf. the other night and each teacher I talked to basically had the same thing to say..their hands are tied.
They can only give out 'pink slip' after 3 pinks the kid sees guidance counselor..big eye roll. They guidance talks to them sends them back to class
and then it starts all over. Im tired of the lowest common denominator taking up space...I know this will get me flamed..but I DO NOT CARE. I DO
realize they are children..but honestly..there is no help for them in public ed. I see the same thing, different schools, different states, all the
same. Our education system is going to have to have an overhaul to handle and control these kids..we need to separate at a younger age and allow the
stronger learners to move forward..the other children need specialized teachers that know how to handle the mounting problems they have in their
lives...maybe they need to do something like this..
students that show academic promise should move forward in studies. They would be eligible for middle school, HS, UNI.
students that cause trouble or that basically find education to be a waste should move on through some sort of vocation program..where they are
taught skills of trade.
severe cases should be allowed only to complete elementary and then move forward to ROTC or military type training.
If the parents do not like these choices then they can home school their children or find private facilities that can handle these kids.
My daughter (6th grade) comes home daily with of how out of control the classes have become. Her math class and Spanish class are basically a wash
because the teacher spends the majority of time trying to calm, chatting, paper throwing..phone usage, fighting, and joking around..by a handful of
students in the class. The teacher told me the other night that the kids that are like this are already in all of the 'special' help programs and
that other than expelling them there isn't anything else the school can do. It shouldn't be this way.
