If you had trouble learning in a chaotic environment, do you think real life learning is any different? Maybe you should thank the people that made school more like real life? Real life is not all peaches and cream, you need to learn to think on your toes if you hope to make a decent living.

That's one of the dumbest responses I've ever read- not just on ATS, but the entire internet. I will be sure to thank my former classmates for constantly running around the classroom, throwing things, screaming, purposely tearing the building apart, throwing and tearing apart textbooks that are provided to them for free, beating the crap out of each other, and making nice teachers cry for no reason.

That crap will NOT be tolerated at the workplace. I can tell your child or children are prime examples of the students I described above. You're out of your mind if you think they will last in the 'real world'.

ETA: "Real life" is so much like the environment I described above because of "parents" like yourself. There should be government-subsidized sterilizations.

This is a discussion forum. You are making yourself look really stupid. Not only throwing personal attacks at me, but my family? Grow up, then maybe we can have an adult discussion.

It is obvious that most of the posters in this thread are way out of touch with the way youth are acting these days.

No respect at all for anything or anybody.

How can anyone here sit and judge the actions of these people when you are not there everyday to deal with this troubled young person?

I think that it is obvious that there has been issues with this child before.

You and dayve are the ones that need to grow up. You both sound like you're still stuck in the typical middle school and high school mindset. Prime examples of arrested development.

I would of done probably the same thing than that kid but added the word "sorry but...".
I got an attitude problem towards bullies and ego trippers and it's got me loads of problems but I don't care.

I will never ask no one to bow to me and I will never bow to no one.

I will never be mean to you but don't you dare be mean to me.

I will always accept the truth no matter how painful but don't you dare lie to me.

I will never ask no one to do something that is against their values but don't you dare manipulate me in doing so.

Threefold shall be given back in love and hate.
I am faaaaaar from perfect but I think this value I stand by is a good one that should be shared and fought for.

I agree. This girl knows she doesn't have time in her life for the slop that passes for education today. She may have been rude but being handcuffed by police is outrageous. What happened to Saturday detention in the homeroom? Geez. The Insanity of it.

Can I ask you how many times this kid has had satruday detention?

Is this kid a repeat offender?

In my opinion there really is not enough info to pass judgement on this matter.

It is unfortunate that parents have lessened influence over their kid's behavior due to the effects of values clarification and the absurd teaching methods being used today, with the State also deciding how parents are allowed to deal with them.

You can't even take your kids out in public without people tattling if you yell at them. This is how far gone the pc baloney has gotten.

We do not know the rest of the circumstances which may have led up to this incident. I have learned that when things get posted here there's often another side not being reported. I still think the handcuffing was over the top unless there was more to it.

Society is more to blame than people know. The State has stolen the natural authority parents are supposed to have.

You are right and please see my last post.

I have posted elsewhere on the forum that people have so few manners anymore. It is a general decay of moral values. The State's answer is more Police State mentality.

I knew a guy who in jr high had put hydrochloric acid on his teacher's chair. It only went through her stockings, but he ended up at Boys Town for it. That was in the 70's. Handcuffing over attitude seems a bit rough to me.

Still, it could be sensationalism in journalism, and maybe the girl made suggestive motions of a violent nature.

I have dealt with hard headed kids before. Never once has the thought of calling the police and have them scared into obedience crossed my mind. Scaring a kid into blind obedience, or beating a kid into blind obedience is hindering their ability to think for themselves. Bottom line is, our job as parent, and as a society is to prepare them for the real world. Can't do your job, then don't become a parent. And certainly don't masquerade as a teacher.

What makes you think kids are scared of cops? This girl was simply handcuffed and escorted after other methods of gaining her cooperation failed.

Teachers can't do their jobs without the cooperation of the students.

Have you ever been "handcuffed and escorted" by a cop when you were a kid? It is scary as hell.

No, but the kids that have been don't seem troubled by it, especially when they continue to engage in criminal behavior.
