quote:I've made this clear in the thread. Let me clarify my son's profile. He's talkative, but he only talks in class when they are allowed to talk. He makes excellent grades and has never had a behavior problem in this teacher's class. The water bottle was empty, so there was no water on the floor. The bottle issue started with one of the bad kids in the class calling another kid a moron. The "moron" then threw the bottle and hit my son. I punished him, but it was not bad enough to whip his arse. I was proud that he did not throw the bottle back at his classmate. The teacher made my son and the "moron" write a note home but did not make the name caller write home. He's the real instigator and behavior problem in the class.
How do you know the parent or teacher was black or white?
quote:This is a predictable response. No offense. I never make excuses for my kid. I expect my kids to act right no matter what else is going on in the room. The only other time he's been in trouble was on the bus, and that was for taking up for his little sister. This hispanic bully messed with her for months and the bus drivers refused to do anything about it. The first bus driver got fired for falling asleep on the job and running into a car at the junior high. (that wasn't the only time he fell asleep on the job) Are you getting a picture of the circus that is our education sytem?
The problem is probably your kid an you refuse to see it.
quote:So far my kids school experiences have been good, except for the bus driver. And he was pretty great, except for the danger part.
You do not have to stay there
quote:I agree; thanks. What else is interesting and hypocritical, she refused to return any phone calls.
I always thought putting it in writing was less cowardly. That, shite don't go away.
