Q & A

Got this from Mix 92.3 radio station:Today’s Talk of the Town: Citing the case at a Osborne High School last week where the teacher had a stapler thrown at his back, and then was hit in the chest after trying to reprimand the students; How far should teacher’s be able to go in order to protect themselves against unruly/violent students? This teacher called the police department and the students age 14 and 16 were arrested. How should unruly/violent students be disciplined?

    • I agree with how the teacher handled it.  It is against the law to assault another person...period.

    • Yes I also agree Daphne, it is such a shame that the schools have gotten so laxed in the protection of not only the teachers but the students as well. I truly feel those parents who seem to be so useless in trying to use more corrective measures with their unruly children be held more accountable for what their kids do. Its not like some of these parents are blind to the behaviors of their kids.worried

    • Yes, I agree that the parents need to be held accountable as apparently their discipline skills are not reinforced, if at all.  Neicy, I can’t understand the lack of authority not being implemented anymore by many adults with their kids.  If they are afraid of their own children, then it is up to the counties and states to be involved.

    • I agree with how the teacher handled it. My guess as to why the parents don’t handle their kids better is because they are afraid. Not just of the kids themselves but from child protective services too. I know my daughter threatened me when she was 15 that she would call them on me and I told her to go right ahead. As a matter of fact I told her (grabbing her arm and pulling her towards the door) I said let’s just go there together and file a complaint. She backed down and never pulled that stunt again.

      But really I think parents are afraid of the services that are meant to protect kids. And while I think they do protect I think sometimes they don’t investigate properly either IMO.

    • Vikki, I too would have done the very same thing you did if one of mine ever tried to go there with me but they knew better, I agree with you on some parents being afraid, but when does one draw the line, either you‘re going to raise up and take dominion over your home and your parental responsibilities or you too can do time with your bad a** kids!

    • I think it’s a shame that schools are not allowed to give kids swats anymore.  When I was in school, I got pops ONE time and learned my lesson.  Plus my father would of been tougher on me than the school for acting up!  Then in high school when kids (it was mainly the boys) acted up the teachers called the gym teacher and took them in the hall to give them their pops.  The classroom got so quiet you could hear a pin hit the floor.  We all listened for that first pop.  The guy’s always came in with red eyes and smiling like it was nothing!

      Schools are mean’t to teach our children, not be babysitters and raise them!

    • pat on the back for the teacher in such an ordeal.  the school my daughter attends has a 3 step prevention plan. (thats what i call it).  first offense a warning, second offense detention or other disciplinary punishment and meeting of child with parents, third offense expelled from school or suspension.
