I may be in the minority but I think that the only way to get kids today to start actiing mature is to enforce these rules to the fullest.

I agree with those of you who doubt the story. This kid shot the rubber band at the teacher. This is why I couldn't be a teacher because I'd be in jail after kicking his ass. :-D

I got suspened from school in the 1st grade for shooting the bus driver with a water gun. Can't say it made be a better person but 10 days doesn't seem to severe to me.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Somehow I think there's likely more to the story than he "tossed it on her desk". But still, a rubber band?

Yea im sure it was more of a shot then a toss, but im sure it made science way more interesting :-D


Yeah, I am totally stoked for my Physics class tomorrow! ;-D

that seriously followed you to high school?

All I do is shake my head anymore about the state of the world we live in.

The punishment regarding the rubberband: Im also sure their was more to it than "tossing it on the teachers desk" or whatever - but at the same time - I have another solution, that wouldnt retard his education and permanantly affect his record: detention. Novel idea, I know, but it just may work. ;-7

The more I read about this sort of thing in public education the more convinced I am that homeschooling my kids is the way to go.

I've been considering that for my son next year as well. The only thing that bugs me about homeschooling him is I believe he needs the social interaction with other kids his age. Makes it a tough decision. Right now I'm just leaning at putting him in a different school.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.

I bet there are a number of programs in your area that you could enrole your son into that will help him develop socially - whether its sports teams, art classes at the local art institute, classes at the local Y, or any number of things.

Personally, I think the idea that homeschooled kids lack social skills is a big fresh load of doo. I guarantee you wouldnt be able to pick out the homeschooled kids from a lineup of 18 year olds - unless of course they have to take a test, then the intelligence gap would be a dead giveaway. }:-)

Whats wrong with middle school kids now adays... In my town there are local middle school gangs.. the 233 and the 123 and this other one. They had a fight and kids got "arrested" (sent home to mom and dad) they were using steak knives and pelet guns. Our local police chief said "at least they arent using AK47s and meat cleavers.." that went over well in the town :-o

I live in West Hartford, Connecticut, if anyone knows about it is a rich/not ghetto town. The only ghetto around is in the middle of Hartford.

Yeah when I was in school there were a butt-load of gangs. This one gang kept wanting me to join because I was pretty good with a bo staff. :-b
