Our hands are SO tied with "Special Ed" kids. We can only suspend them for a cumulative 10 days and if their "Exceptionality" is behavior disorder...you're not going to believe this, we can't touch them for behavioral issues since THAT is their exceptionality.

System is all facked up.

This will probably get pushed to the side in the media and nobody will talk about it, which is complete BS!!! This incident frustrates the heck out of me...

quote:

“He worked in a prison for 10 years. Do you think this man was afraid? Get real,” Jan said in a telephone interview from her Tyler home, surrounded by close friends and family. “We’d be eating out and a student would walk up and shake his hand. He’d look at me and smile and say, ’That’s what it’s all about.”’
sounds like he was a good man. sad story.

True dat.

I just don't get school anymore. Teachers can't really teach, because parents are all over them, kids know they can't touch them. I say bring back the paddle, and tell the parents to shut up. Things like this don't need to happen. God bless the family.

“It is our understanding at this time that there was nothing in the classroom that incited this situation,” Reid said. “It was a random act.”

Well, it was and it wasn't.

The teacher was trying to defuse an existing feud between the stabber and his intended victim. The teacher got caught in the middle and was stabbed in the neck.

A lot of racial overtones in this. Tensions have been on the rise with a growing Hispanic population who attend that school. A lot of fights since the beginning of the school year.....and this won't be the last.
