    Boys have always been more prone to act out than girls. Teachers seemed to have been perfectly capable of handling male students in this regard without getting their proverbial "panties in a twist" in the past.
    And the way they handle it is by lowering grades, or expelling them if they become too troublesome.

    How is it productive to basically ensure that boys will be more likely to get in trouble by removing physical outlets for their energy, if you're going to slap them down with ludicrous penalties for it?
    They have plenty of outlets for their energy

    In the past couple of years alone, we've had boys suspended or expelled for things as innocuous as making pretend guns with their fingers and kissing girls on the cheek. How many more ridiculous punishments do you think have slipped past the media's notice?
    zero tolerance rules, which I do not support, is a right wing idea.

    Prove it. The only generation to be raised under this style of education so far has had more trouble translating their academic experiences into the workforce than any other in our nation's history.
    Every generation has had to demonstrate an ability to put the skills and knowledge they've gained in the classroom to use in the classroom in order to get a passing grade. It's not a new thing.

    Is that why you blatantly contradict this statement by defending the effects of zero tolerance policies upon male students in your very next sentence?

    And the way they handle it is by lowering grades, or expelling them if they become too troublesome.
    A "teacher" who cannot educate their students is incompetent and lazy. They deserve neither the job, nor the title.

    They have plenty of outlets for their energy
    Prove it. What "outlets" does a boy without recess or sports possess during the 8 to 12 hours daily he is required to sit in class?

    zero tolerance rules, which I do not support, is a right wing idea.
    Then I would suggest you stop doing everything in your power to rationalize and defend them.

    Every generation has had to demonstrate an ability to put the skills and knowledge they've gained in the classroom to use in the classroom in order to get a passing grade. It's not a new thing.
    And? The "skills" (I.e. busy work) students are currently being peddled in the classroom are turning out to be by and large worthless for making that leap.

    Again Sangha, why are you going out of your way to defend a clearly failed system that you claim to not even support?

    Is it because you are desperate to rationalize this bizarre grudge you seem to harbor against the male gender, or is it simply because it makes for easier fodder where b/f/t is concerned? :lol

    The level of hypocrisy and intellectual dishonesty on display here is beyond transparent.

    Re: Men: Would You Marry an American Woman?

    Hmmm, I check in to see how it's going with marrying off American women to American men, and find a discussion on education?

    Do you ever wonder how that happens?

    Some people argue more on the basis of trying to "bait" other posters and score imaginary points in their own heads than trying to have meaningful discussions.

    As such, it tends to be in these people's best interests to be argumentative for the Hell of it, even when they do not really believe what they are saying. This often leads minor tangents to explode into full on flame wars.

    Well yeah, but even a flame war should be on topic.

    Since I have little overall desire to leave the country, I'll have to have an American woman.

    The intolerant closed mind and raging hatred of men that is reflected in your posts perfectly confirms the entire premise of the OP. Can you not see this?

    I explicitly stated that I oppose zero tolerance. Your belief that I defended them is just another example of you ignoring anything that contradicts your beliefs.

    Some people are not educable.


    Prove it. What "outlets" does a boy without recess or sports possess during the 8 to 12 hours daily he is required to sit in class?
    They can do whatever they want they're not in school. And school isn't even 8 hours

    And? The "skills" (I.e. busy work) students are currently being peddled in the classroom are turning out to be by and large worthless for making that leap.
    The results prove you wrong.

    There's no "raging hatred of men" here.
    I just don't make pissy, childish excuses for us either.
    Men have ruled the world since the dawn of time.
    We hold the vast majority of positions of power.
    Who are the richest people in the world?
    Who are the most famous?
    Who are the most powerful?

    Even "GOD" is a male.

    Gimme a damned break.

    Where is all this nonsense coming from?
