    Students...

    The problem with the school system is not the teacher nor the system... it is letting the kids get away with stuff while the administration does little to nothing about it.

    Should have been, "nor is it the system"... but I was typing fast. I apologize.

    Damn, that's some heavy stuff. My heart goes out to these teachers that have to put up with this Bullsh*t. This crosses all political boundaries. I don't know specifically what the answer might be but something has to be done. This can-not-continue or one day soon we'll hear about a teacher that goes completely berserk and does the unthinkable.
    I know one damn thing. There's more than just this poster (on this board) that would turn down a job offer to teach. Not because of the work but afraid of what we might do. Even calm, easy-going people can be pushed far enough to finally think "F*ck this Sh*t..it's payback time." I certainly don't want to go to that place...
    I feel so much better now since I've completely given up all hope.

    More like either/or and neither/nor. The school's problem is not treating criminal acts as crimes to be referred to and handled by the criminal justice system, but rather as "violent behavior problems" to be accepted as normal and handled within the "special needs" public school environment.

    The teacher made no mention as to the percentage of violent offenders within the total "student" population. I would be willing to bet that removal (to juvenile detention facilities) of that violent minority under a truly zero tolerance policy would show immediate improvements. That, of course, is more expensive and would likely result in cries of racism (disparate impact?) - best to just let all continue to suffer to save money and prevent race riots.

    Sad. Maybe New Zealand should ban that like they do other things. You know, for the children.
