Tribunals suspend students after teachers are hurt

  • Follow Latest News

Two Glenn Hills High School students who were fighting were suspended after a teacher was hurt during the incident, according to Richmond County tribunal findings made public today.

The March 10 fight was broken up, but when one student tried to go after the other again, the teacher was punched and slapped. The aggressive student was suspended for the rest of the school year with the option to attend the Tubman Education Center Alternative Program in lieu of long-term suspension. The other student was given time served, plus 10 days of in-school suspension, and was placed on strict probation for the rest of the school year, according to the March 22 tribunal finding.

In another hearing, a Sego Middle School pupil was suspended for the rest of the school year after he closed the classroom door, causing the teacher's fingers to be caught between the door and doorjamb, on March 9. The teacher was not seriously injured. The pupil was given the option to attend the alternative program.

Is it just me, or is the

Is it just me, or is the suspension of the middle school student for the rest of the year way overboard?!? First if all, this sounds like an accident. Why would an intelligent adult ever have their fingers placed in between the door and door frame on the same side where the hinges are?!?! Second of all, how can a student know that another person had their fingers placed there? The student was only using the door in a manner in which it was designed to be used. You OPEN doors, and you CLOSE doors..... You DON'T put your fingers anywhere close to the hinges!!!!

This is insane. Government

This is insane.
Government schools = child abuse. Beg, borrow or steal to get your kids into a good private school.

The solution starts with

The solution starts with getting the federal government out of public education, and a whole lot of other things.

I am about to finish a most enjoyable, yet very frustrating book, 33 Questions About American History You Are Not Supposed to Ask. Thomas E Wood, who managed to graduate from Ivy League schools unscathed. The last 3 chapters I have read deal with the true intentions of the Framers of our Constitution, or I should say, most of the framers and their promises and explanations to the states in order to get them to ratify it. It's amazing how upside down the interpretations have come at the hands of people wanting unlimited powers for the feds, which was never the intention.

Wow! Three follow-up posts

Wow! Three follow-up posts that actually agree with me. I'm not used to so many folks here seeing things quite the same way I do. Some good new points made along the way too, by the way.
