A razor blade in school and two separate incidents that led to teachers being injured landed three students being punished, according to Richmond County tribunal findings made public today.

A Cross Creek High School student admitted to bringing to school a razor blade wrapped in a piece of paper inside her notebook on Oct. 8. She was assigned to the Tubman Education Center Alternative Program for the rest of the semester, according to the finding of an Oct. 25 tribunal.

A Sego Middle School pupil slammed the door on his teacher, threw things in a classroom, ripped down posters, threatened another student and hit and scratched another teacher with a pair of scissors on Oct. 15. He was suspended for the rest of the school year and for the first semester of the 2011-12 school year with the option to attend the alternative program, the finding states.

A Hornsby K-8 School pupil chased another student who had torn his shirt and ran into a teacher, hurting the teacher, on Oct. 14. He was suspended for the rest of the school year with the option to attend the alternative program, the finding states.

Columbia County never has

Columbia County never has commented on anything that happens in it's system no matter what. Pretty smart huh! Maybe Richmond should do the same thing and keep it on the DL too or hush hush.

Real estate values go down

Real estate values go down when you report, too much. Good marketing ploy between the county officials, real estate agents and the media. Where is Austin Rhodes when we need him? Oh, I forgot he lives there, too.

The taxpayers of Richmond

The taxpayers of Richmond County deserve to know what is happening in their tax-supported schools.

Columbia County doesn't have tribunals; they have hearings, with hearing officers, and have done so since 1997.

Sounds like the punishments are being taken more seriously by the new super. Way to go! Stop the nonsense. Protect the teachers.

Never, in all my years in

Never, in all my years in Richmond County Schools did I come close to witnessing the level of violence and disrespectfuly behavior displayed in just these three incidents alone. I came along during the time of Leave It To Beaver and Father knows best. We weren't spoonfed the violence and gangster applauds in vogue today.

Parents today are just the worst in the history of America.

smec, i agree, you would

Unpublished

smec, i agree, you would think attacking someone with sissors the attacker would be permanently expelled from the school district, but smec you forgot this is richmond county school district they need all the students they can get and the under/non performaning students are more valuable that students who do well because the under/non performing students allow richmond county to continue to have low test scores, poor academic performance in order to continue to qualify for the "knuckle-head"...ooops i mean the race for the top federal grants...that is until the new congress gets seated and then cut the funding for that program.
