Today's School


The teacher was writing on the board when he heard a loud bang.  He turned around and saw a boy kicking over furniture and throwing books on the floor.  The boys eyes were cold and the teacher felt if he had a gun, someone (probably him) would be dead.  Security was called, the boy was restrained and taken away.

The school gave the boy a one day suspension and sent him back to class.  The teacher filed a restraining order and the boy is now no longer allowed anywhere around him.

So glad that the teacher was able to get the student removed. You and I both know so many cases where the administration does not allow for removal of students, where there is no real "time out" room or whatever the heck it is called these days, where if there is an issue with a student it is the teacher who is blamed. I was assaulted by a student who was returned to my classroom a week later and I was the one brought up on charges (later dismissed. My experience is the, sadly, becoming more and more the norm.

Breaking up small schools and co- locations has left space at a premium. The first space to go in most schools has been the SAVE room. If you call for a student to be removed, you are told there is nowhere to put her/him. The student often views this as a victory and the behavior escalates. What's worse is that the students, who could go ethier way see there's no consequences for bad behavior. Very soon the teacher has a completely out of control class and will be targeted by administration, because no learning is going on in the room. Add to it that there are basically no suspensions or arrests happening in any city schools because of political correctness and pandering. Also DiBlasio is about to let students bring their cell phones into class and there's a concerted effort under way to get rid of metal detectors!
