The apple didn't fall very far from the tree. A mother and son fighting with a teacher and a principal is downright embarassing to themselves and the school. Sounds Ghettofabulous!

Perfect example of why kids

Perfect example of why kids act the way they do. They are a product of their environment, in most cases, not 100% of the time, but defintiely most of the time! Sad, Sad, Sad

I see two upstanding pillars of the community. NOT ! Unfortunately, the law says that educational chances have to be provided, in the public school system, to age twenty-one. @lifelonresident -- have you ever heard of capitalization before ??

Way back in the day, when I

Way back in the day, when I was in school... if I had even raised my voice to a teacher, my parents would have whooped my behind AND I would have gotten detention, at the very least. What on earth is going on with these children and their so-called "parents"? I see this young man has a future at the RYDC or worse. These people behaved like animals, and there are some children at that school who will think this is the way to behave, while I'm certain the majority of them know this was absolutely wrong and condemn their actions.

Once a student lays a hand on

Once a student lays a hand on a teacher the student should never be allowed in any public school again. A mother thats acts that way should be charged with assault & child abuse. Guess ya can tell where the kid learned the aggression...

I usually dont leave comments

I usually dont leave comments on blogs but I get so sick of reading about such ignorant people. I think is one of the major problems with a lot of kids today. If it was my child I would went to the school and beat his behind at school, on the ride back home, and at home. I dont think that teachers are paid enough to deal with most of these kids and I feel for the ones that goto school for an education.

And if he is a senior in high

And if he is a senior in high school he is past the RYDC stage in life. He has "graduated" to the big house at 401 Walton Way. (Pun intended)

Phillip Kirby Murray cannot be left behind. Every measure must be taken to ensure he graduates with a high school diploma or equivalent. By 2014 every child will be reading on grade level and every child will graduate.

Used to teach at Josey. This kind of intolerable behavior is why I now teach at a rural school. Not Utopia, but close enough when compared with RC and CC schools.

When I was a young boy and

When I was a young boy and got in trouble in school, my mom was there to whip MY rear end and not the principal's. I don't know if this family is on any public assistance programs, but I would impose a rule that ANY person who accepts PUBLIC money be immediately suspended from ANY future payments of ANY kind.....This is OUR money they are getting and WE are getting tired of supporting this lifestyle.

The Senior should not

The Senior should not graduate so you need to suspend him for the rest of the year and if he so desires, either get a GED or he can repeat the 12th grade.
The mother needs to be in jail!
