Heretic

Some kids have no respect

Recommended Posts

It's stories like this that make me question what we are doing as a society...

Teachers at a school my wife was TOC'ing at, were talking about a couple of incidents.

The first was, a student punched a teacher in the face - for no reason.

Instead of the student being reprimanded - suspended - the board came down on the teacher and questioned why they were close enough to a student for them to get punched.

The second was where a student picked up a chair and threw it at a teacher - but missed,

Instead of the student being reprimanded - suspended - the board came down on the teacher and said "lucky you ducked".

Wow.

In my day, if a student did that - they were expelled.

Students respected teachers.

Kids aren't innocent. Kids are vicious little monsters.

I'm not really surprised by the reaction though. These days if a kid gets a bad mark, its the teachers fault for not doing a good enough job.

Disgusting really. My Mom's a teacher and she tells me stories like this all the time. Spoiled little bas*****. Glad I turned out okay though.

You need a license to drive a car, to hunt a deer, even to own a dog ......... but there is no law stopping idiots from breeding.

The parents of the kids in question should be publicly flogged.

Not all kids are bad apples. Here's a nice story for a little balance.

As a teacher, I say, "Where is the freaking Union on this?"

We don't have the whole story or know any history, so, there has to be more to it if the teacher was reprimanded. It's not the job of the board to reprimand teachers.

As a member of our Health and Safety Committee, I would also have these teachers file a Violent Incident Report. These kids are a safety issue for staff and students alike. From the report, a Safety Plan would have to be constructed and implemented for each of these kids. One of my recommendations would be to have these kids do their program at home via correspondence / Directed Learning.

Finally, bring in the RCMP. These are clearly 2 cases of assault, one straight up and one attempted. Charge the little bastards.

Our profession sure doesn't come with the built-in respect it once did. I believe we need to earn the kids respect, and vice-versa, but having chairs thrown at me and getting punched in the face were not what I signed up for 15 years ago, that's for sure!

Assault is assault. Call the cops

This didn't happen in my day when the parents were on the teachers side.

Every day I find more and more reason not to have kids. Not that I believe I would be a bad parent, I just dislike what society has become and don't want to have to compete with it and the media.

Ugh.

Like kids haven't been messing with teachers for generations. This is obviously an extreme example. My great uncle would get the strap, and would always quickly move his hand out of the way, causing the teacher to hit herself. This was in the 1930's. People who are disrespectful for no reason have existed since the beginning of civilization.

Don't blame the kids, blame the system that allows it.

Back in the day I think schools were going too far the other way. They were reprimanding kids for every little thing while refusing to acknowledge that perhaps it was the fault of the teacher or maybe that their approach might just have been wrong.

Now they are overcompensating by being far too lenient.

I always believe that what a parent or a teacher could not teach these kids, life will teach them someday. And that lesson will be painful...but they'll never forget it. Life is meant to teach us that we're not entitled to anything unless we earn it.
