Having come along in the years of the tv westerns, we'd all be in prison now for acting like we had a gun.

I think I made a derogatory
Unpublished

I think I made a derogatory comment about my teachers at least once a day when I was in school. Did the teacher go running to the principal and say "that mean ol' student called me a name"!

And the cream of the crop

And the cream of the crop that demonstrates the epitome of stupidity in the school "no punishment for any crime" system:

"Two Tubman Education Center students physically assaulted and injured a man and a woman in front of the school entrance on Feb. 13. They were suspended through the end of the 2012-13 school year, with the option to attend Tubman in 2012-13."

So two TUBMAN students assault and injure people in front of TUBMAN and are sentenced to go to TUBMAN. I cannot believe the blatant stupidity of our school board, our school administrators, and our teachers. There is your proof that nobody in our education system has a clue about restoring discipline in the classroom.

These are not "child" crimes and passing out "child" punishments will not do any good. Anyone who thinks being sent to Tubman is a deterrent or a punishment is out in la-la land. ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE ALREADY THERE WHEN YOU COMMIT ANOTHER ASSAULT.

Look at these offenses people. These are not "children misbehaving" types of offenses. Many of these are adult criminal offenses committed by your little darlings. Assault, attempted assault, drug dealing, illegal weapons, sexual assault, and drug use.

Put them OUT of school......permanently. Send them home to their parents who failed to do their jobs and then turned these criminals loose on the rest of us. They are lost....give up on them and remove them from disrupting the kids that are actually trying to do what they are supposed to. Let them get an early start on their normal progression to juvenile and then the adult justice system where they belong and are destined to end up anyway. Let these failed parents visit their little darlings in YDC instead of picking them up from Tubman. It will probably be the first time in their lives that these parents know where their kids are and what they are doing.
