    Judge's ban of student from Duval public schools to be challenged

    Judge's ban of student from Duval public schools to be challenged | firstcoastnews.com


    In a nutshell, a 14 year old girl beats another 14 year old girl to a pulp. The victim ends up with a skull fracture and a severe concussion. The Judge removed the offender from all Duval County public schools, but the mother is fighting the ruling, saying she can't afford private school or home-schooling for the daughter. The Judge's position is that, if this girl is capable of such a severe beating on another person, changing schools isn't going to help. What do you think? Should she be allowed to change schools, or should she be pulled completely?

    Imo, she should be in jail.

    Absolutely, this kid needs to be put in a juvenile facility where she can not only receive the schooling she needs, but also the psychiatric counseling she so obviously requires.

    So yeah, the judge was wrong. He tossed an adolescent pirahna back into the aquarium filled with prey.

    Re: Was the Judge right or wrong?

    how is this any different than expulsion for cause

    and how bogus is the excuse "cannot afford" to home school her

    excuse me? parent(s) home school their children at almost no cost. a LOT of time and effort, but modest actual expense. seems to me the mom doesn't want to have to deal with her own kid. tough. the free day care ended at 14. now teach her something. start with how to act

    This is the problem that the parent has - she says she can't get her child enrolled in school and that he's violating her right to "educate her child." Good grief, she beat the hell out of that girl. This is local, here - the bullying had been going on for a very long time, and finally she just went ape**** and beat the girl to a pulp. I applaud the Judge, myself. I, for one, am tired of bullies in the school system, and nothing being done about it. If this is what it takes, then so be it. Schools out in a month down here anyway, so she has an entire summer to figure out what to do with that juvenile delinquent once August rolls around.

    Don't know about Florida, but Georgia has free home-schooling for Georgia residents, and it's all done online. We thought about doing something like that for my daughter when her behavior and grades forced us to pull her out of public school and home school her. We are paying a very modest amount for a private home-school system. Only $125 a month. It's an expense I'd rather not have, but it's significantly less expensive than $10,000 a year for a private school, and it's getting her straightened out.

    This parent needs to learn that one way or the other, she's going to pay for bad parenting.

    The only thing wrong with this decision is that it isn't made often enough

    The girl can still be enrolled but on home detention. Once she finishes writing: "Will will not be anyone else to a pulp" ten million times, she can go back to jail.

    We don't know, but what if the mother is the only one working to support this 14 year old. Telling the mother to home-school might mean going on welfare, except for the fact that she probably wouldn't get any welfare if she voluntarily quit working.
