NYC Public Schools Change ‘Discipline Code’ To Ease Penalties For Smoking, Cursing, Other Infractions « CBS New YorkCBS New York – Students may be catching a break if they misbehave in school. The rules surrounding suspensions in New York City schools are changing.
The changes to the discipline code should result in far fewer suspensions, CBS 2’s Vanessa Murdock reported Wednesday.
“Our goal is to make sure the schools are providing a safe environment for our students, but also we just don’t push students out of the classroom where they’re not learning as well,” Schools Chancellor Dennis Walcott said.
What will be different? Well, for starters Walcott said cutting class and cursing will no longer be grounds for suspension.
Neither will smoking, something that left a few parents bewildered.
hey, that's one way to keep suspensions down
it makes sense to keep disruptive kids in school---so they can cut
yesterday gallup reported that by a very telling plurality americans find public school the WORST place to try to educate a kid
homeschooling was exactly 260% more popular than the locals and ps's
obama has been stumping while his opponents convene (the tastefulness of which even politico questions), and his singular focus before half empty university crowds has been education, which, to him, means nothing more than student loans and stimulus
ie, no reform, only more of the same
83% of americans, according to gallup, are trapped in the public school system they don't approve of, and obama calls only for more "investment"
investment, that is, in teachers' unions
chris christie in tampa---we believe in teachers, they believe in teachers unions
christie got teacher tenure reform thru trenton
paul ryan---put the kids first, not the bosses
if you think you built your company you're forgetting the excellent teachers (whom you pay thru your taxes) who set you up (simply by doing their jobs), and you might want to remember a little gratitude for dear old mrs woodhouse and eccentric mr edwards
and now you can go cuss them out
