Principal Allegedly Chokes Student
Did the kids tap out by saying "uncle?"
How do you plan to argue your way out of this one? Is he also eating pieces of the turn-buckle and spitting it at his students as well.
What kind of environment are we promoting that we hire administrators who feel they are obligated to put young girls in strangleholds as a first line of defense.
I remember fearing a detention slip, not a death grip.
School Guard Accused Of Breaking Student's Arm
I'm sure there are two sides to every story, but the headline to this one may as well read: "Cops prove how tough they are by man-handling a helpless 15-year old girl."
Let's be serious here. What's the worst harm this girl could have been causing the school staff that it was necessary for two huge dudes to tackle her and break her arm?
Since it's California, we're positive these guards have a rich history of being racist and couldn't wait for the opportunity to rage out on an entire black family. Let's just relax for a minute and not get so upset that you probably lost the starting full-back position to a black kid when you were in high school.
Apparently the biggest threat to school safety is a 100-pound girl dropping cake on the floor. I can remember kids bringing in butterfly knives and only getting referrals. The only thing this girl will be getting out of her education is perpetuating young black anger and distrust towards white authority.
Great job guys! Keep the outstanding work!
Va. teacher fired for buttocks art sues
Maybe if a teacher's salary was at a livable wage, this guy wouldn't have to "moonlight" by making butt art.
Every teacher I knew had a part-time job on the side. My school wasn't in an uproar when we learned our music teacher worked at a beer distributer three nights a week.
And this guy won teacher of the year! Let's honor a teacher when he makes an impact in the classroom and not scrutinize his social hobbies outside of the school.
One day you are turning in quarterly grades for the report card and the next day you’re wired off coke trying to bury your TV in the snow in your front lawn. But I'm OK with this teacher showing me CPR and the breast-stroke.
As adults, we come to grips with the fact that not everyone is perfect and as long as we maintain our professionalism while on the clock, then there's nothing to worry about.
Leave this guy alone.
"The number of students who were suspended equates to about 3 percent of the entire student body at Arsenal Tech."108 Students Suspended Over Dress Code
Fashion is exponential -- each generation is trying have the same visual impact as the one before, yet with each generation society numbs to the extremes, so as the trend setters look to shock and expand boundaries, or simply, to get attention, they need to push harder and harder. Of course, this is often hard for the minds of principals, school boards, and parents to deal with.
Hall Monitor Says:
It was also discovered that each student that does not have blond hair and blue eyes was expelled from the school. And for some unforeseen reason, teen pregnancy spiked coincidently the same day that 108 students were suspended.
What are we trying to prove here? Is the cafeteria going to start serving prison meals? And the students will be stripped searched after eating to make sure they didn't turn their spoon handle into a shank?
This is a public high school, a tech school at that, and they're coming down on 15 year old kids for wearing a shirt with a Nike logo? This is a far stretch from the "Big Johnson" and Bart Simpson "Who the Hell are you" shirts of the early 90's.
Let's start holding schools accountable for producing good citizens with values and an education, not a bunch of graduates who will be too scared to take a job outside of accounts receivable because they've learned the consequences of taking risks and having an imagination.
Teacher loses fight to take gun to class
"I'm about to give a Newtonian demonstration, of a bullet, it's mass, and it's acceleration." - MC Hawking
I think this teacher was demonstrating great logic. What parent wouldn't feel comfortable knowing that educators keep live weapons on their person? Is she that delusional that she thinks the Bill of Rights has got her back on this one? Charlton Heston gave way too many people a boner when he starting preaching about bearing arms. We may as well put every child through a hunter's safety course and allow them all to bring firearms to school. We will let them to use their own judgment on when to open rounds. As long as they feel their safety was threatened, the ends should justify the means. Freedom isn't the right to carry a gun around children in school. We need less neurotic faculty teaching students and not ones that compromise my freedom by coming up with idiotic ideas like this. I had a physics teacher who used to smoke in the classroom. We never knew this because we saw him do this, but we knew because every day when we came back from lunch at 12:45 the class smelled like Marlboro Reds. I don't want to have to come back from lunch and find bullet casings and gun powder on the floor...it makes me feel a little more uneasy than a pack of smokes.
