I would've spit in that staff members face the second they told me they were contacting the police hows that for "attitude". Im tired of this teacher mentality were discipline is more important then the education. The staff that called the police should be fired and arrested for misuse of the 911 line. If she can't handle an 11 year old why doesn't she move to the highschool and see how they treat her there.


why don't you teach your spoilt brats some manners instead?

instead of watching the hores on Americas next top model or other crap.

it is people like you are the cause of our problems.

or just don't breed .get your tubes cut if you can't be bothered.

Well then you should know what im talking about then, Im sure you have staff members that act the same way. Teachers fight with their partners or have horrible lifes, and bring their problems into work the same way a police officer can. This was not an classroom incident, this took place in the hallway what if that student was just trying to get back to class faster and the staff member was obstructing their progress. I've had teachers follow me to the bathroom because they thought I was up to no good. Don't you have classes to teach, focus on the education you mine as well start defining schools as detention centers. My school had LINES out of the discipline offices and down the hallways, taking students out of class to give them write ups. They should be in class learning and then maybe you wouldn't be making every student out to be a criminal like schools do now a days.

"What's the big deal?"
"I talk to my mother this way all the time"

If the parents had done their job none of this would have happened.
Not that handcuffing a child is right under those circumstances because it wasn't warranted.
Parents expect schools to raise their child for them.
This is what you get.

ok? Thats a totally different situation.

and has nothing to do with this story.

The kid said "i don't have time for this" and walked away, she wasn't attacking the principal, or the cop.

I would've told the child to show a little more respect, ya know TALK to the kid. Not just arrest them.

I don't understand what your story has to do with this one.

But yea, good for you.

What I'm about to say to you, I say with the upmost respect.

Very true, teachers are humans. There are people in schools who, quite frankly, should choose a different career. But consider this. The salary for a teacher is only slightly above the poverty line. So why stay in education? Because we care about children. We love working with children. We stay in education because we care.


This was not an classroom incident, this took place in the hallway what if that student was just trying to get back to class faster and the staff member was obstructing their progress.


Reread the article. The student wanted to get a jacket. When the administrator questioned her, she responded rudely. At that point she was taken to the guidance office.



I've had teachers follow me to the bathroom because they thought I was up to no good.

In your previous post you mentioned you were in multiple fights. Perhaps the teachers monitored you more closely because of your past behavior?


Don't you have classes to teach, focus on the education you mine as well start defining schools as detention centers.

How do you suggest we teach if there is no classroom discipline? Imagine 30 kids in the classroom, all doing whatever they want. That's chaos. Do you really think anyone could learn in that type of environment?
Teachers spend so much time on discipline because the students don't know how to behave or simply don't care.


My school had LINES out of the discipline offices and down the hallways, taking students out of class to give them write ups.


Who do you think is responsible for this? The teachers? The administrators? Perhaps...the students themselves?

I don't understand why "adults" demand automatic respect just because they happen to be older... Same with "authority figures". I didn't give automatic bow down to me knees respect as a kid, I sure don't give it now. Come at me like a human being, I treat you like one. Come at me with an attitude, I can give some back as well.

Everyone deserves respect. Even those whom you may disagree with.

At the same time, respect must be earned. It's a reciprocal event: give me respect and I'll return the favor.

The problem with the schools is complex. You've got professionals who are over-worked and under-paid. Add several hundred teenagers with hormonal changes who think they know everything. If the teen hasn't been taught respect, then he will most likely ignore the lesson or disrupt the class. A no win situation.

My comment about teenagers being know-it-alls was not meant to be rude. I remember thinking I knew everything, that all adults were idiots, etc. it's a developmental phase.

I know exactly what you are saying, I remember all the way back to when I was around 2 years old. My rule of thumb is you get a certain amount of common curtousy respect, until you give me disrespect. Been my rule as long as I can remember.

A lot of people in authority positions don't talk to people, they talk down at them, bark orders. I have never responded well to that type of attitude, probably never will.

And teens, yep, they know it all. I know I knew it all back then

Considering I had to correct teachers on many occasions on the subjects they were teaching, I'd say I knew it all.

So you would commit mass murder and beat someone just because they had the temerity to hold your child accountable for her actions.

Wow.

Great parenting technique. I wonder what atrocities lie in your child's future. Columbine? Virgina Tech? Same mentality.

I will say this about kids in school nowdays....there are some BAD BAD BAD children attending schools....

Today, a little boy in SECOND GRADE (in my daughter's class), decided to punch 2 girls in the stomach....sending them to the doctor. When he was told to apologize he loudly yelled at the teacher "NO" and then laughed about it. That kid was taken out of the class and im not sure if he will be allowed to return.

SECOND GRADE!!!

If my daughter had been a victim, id demand that kid was removed from the school. And if he isnt, my daughter may not be returning to that class.

Something needs to be done with these out of control kids.....seems there is some serious lacking of parenting being done in homes across the country....they are producing seriously messed up kids.

When I was in middle/high school.....if we did what these kids were doing....you would get sent to the Principal's office and "popped" (spanked)....

I would say its less about the parenting and more about the world children are being raised in. We live in a violent culture where fighting is the solution to everything, just look at our foreign policy. Its a bloody and war filled world we reside in.

I graduated high school 2 years ago. To the others in this thread who said they have also graduated recently and are demonizing the teachers: thanks a lot for creating a chaotic environment where it's nearly impossible to learn what is needed in order to do well in class.

Somebody actually admitted to being involved in violent behavior on multiple occasions while in school and has the nerve to blame to teachers for "wasting time" in an attempt to discipline. What a useless generation.
