I know several teachers in Florida public schools and several more who quit because the could not handle the job and all the blue tape that goes along
with it. To teach most classes in Florida, one is more of a babysitter than an educator.
The education system in Florida is centered about getting the most money per student, it is not centered about trying to educate the youth. Many
students simply do not care about failing and spend their time at school socializing and nothing else. Young teachers who want to do good and try to
make a difference get frustrated because so many of their students refuse to try. When they try to contact those students parents they find out they
don't care either.
I do believe the majority of students arrested on campus probably deserve it, there maybe other options but what can you do with a student who refuses
to participate and does nothing but cause problems at school? Those students used to be expelled but because each student as a dollar figure, most
schools will not expel those problems kids, they just wait until they do something they can be arrested for and after their brief time in juvenile
hall they return to the school where they continue to be problem students. Expelling students costs the schools money because they lose a student and
the funding attached to that student.
The school to prison pipeline is caused by an influx of bad students that are the result of poor parenting, not some police state trying to imprison
