That movie is just too funny.
I don't think there are many "gangs" in the town I live in...it's pretty quiet. I think kids are allowed to get away with way too much these days (thanks to the legal system and the psychiatrists), but giving them 10 days out of school suspension for shooting a rubber band seems a little crazy, and I doubt it really does anything to the kid. "Goody; I get to sit at home for two weeks!" That's most kid's dream.
You've got to take something away from them that they like doing or make them do something they don't like to do...whatever that may be. That might actually make them think about shaping up. But, I don't have kids and don't profess to be a marvel with children by any stretch of the word.

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.
I think homeschool is becoming a better option, too. Of course, federal vouchers would be the best, but that's a different topic.
You're seriously concerned about social interaction? Do you think he'll regret never knowing someone who's got the hookup on a phat sack?
What you should do is get a group of parents who are interested in homeschooling, have similar views to yours, and don't have enough time/money to do it all themself. Start a "school" of your own where each of you can take time to teach to the group of kids yourself. This provides a personalized education while giving your kids social interaction. Depending on the size of your homes, you could do anywhere from 8-15 kids at once. Throw in children's church, youth groups, and local rec facilities (for sports) and you have yourself a full childhood education.

What the heck kind of gang is that? Are they using their prison numbers now? Lol.
Sheesh, I grew up surrounded by the Bloods, Crips, Latino Kings, Death Merchants, etc. Who the heck is the 223 or the 123 or the 416-KY? Lol. Those are gang names? Lmao. Too funny.
Edit: So busy laughing at the wanna-be gangs that I forgot about the home schooling suff.
As to the home school, I'm probably just going to put him in a better school next year. If there are still issues, then I'll take a good look at the home school road.

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. Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
Yep my middle school had a few gangs too. Usually it was just kids acting tough and trying to be cool, but one of them is now in jail for stabbing to death another kid at my school... so it did progress eventually. And this is in Canada, I can only imagine what it's like in the States.
But the rubber band thing... jeez, discipline him but don't kick him out of school.
