Seems like Glenn Hills is

Seems like Glenn Hills is just full of little knotheads. I vote to give the pricipal a baseball bat and a rubber hose and turn him loose on them.

"Performance Learning Options Credit Recovery Program"

Now what the heck is that? Another BS program name with no consequences. I though Tubman Alternative was useless but this one sounds even more useless. Another punitive program title name with no butt whooping behind it. If he got physically aggressive with me I would send him to the Butt Whooping Now and Go Home For A Year program. See ya next year in the same grade PUNK.

Wow! Give the principall a

Wow! Give the principal a baseball bat and rubber hose? Improving the discipline at local schools is great, but that's clearly over the top. The actor from the movie Blind Side graduated from Glenn Hills in the year 2003.

I never hear these type of comments when it comes to other schools.. Don't even get me started on the chronicle not printed the tribunals in the surrounding counties.

Burglary

Good points, Dichotomy. Did you catch that the middle schoolers who are put in the new "Performance Learning Options Credit Recovery Program" were charged with burglary? I wonder what kind of slap on the wrist our juvenile justice dished out to them.

It would not be a good idea.

Yes it is a crime now. It

Yes it is a crime now. It never occurred to people of my generation (Vietnam era) to use a weapon in a disagreement at school; but this generation?
