Unfortunately, bad parenting is not being considered as an issue when it comes to classroom misbehavior. These behaviors are a key element in test scoring. Poor test scoring is being blamed on the teachers. "Good' teachers are going to be given merit pay. I suggest that a "good" teacher removed from a high scoring school and placed in an urban school, would no longer be considered a "good" teacher. Granted there are teachers who are not as motivated or creative as other teachers, but overall, most teachers are very motivated and really care about their students. The issue is not good or bad teachers. It is good or bad parenting, but the government thinks otherwise.

In society there are rules and codes of conduct. I think a warning to stop cartwheeling should have been clear enough. Students should have enough sense to understand that some activity like cartwheeling has no place in crowded school hallways. The student showed her disrespect by ignoring the warning and continuing on doing another cartwheel. If a police officer stopped you for trespassing would you continue to trespass because he wasn't being polite? The real world doesn't always work the way you would like it to. There are rules and policies in school just like at work, the military, and laws to follow in everyday life. Teachers are there to enforce school policy and rules whether you like them or not. Students need to understand why they're at school. There is a time for learning and a time for play.

It's not their fault you're an authoritative figurehead in a fascist prison machine that manufactures our youth into perfectly shaped cogs built to replace the old corroding ones once they crumble and wither away.
