Anyway, I'm fine with this kind of thing. Schools need to step it up in a big way. This won't fix all their problems, but getting the kids in class on time and every day is a start.
I agree that schools need to step it up in a big way, but getting the kids to class isn't on the school, it's on the parents/guardians.
Let me put it this way:
#1. Parents need to do their jobs as parents. Way WAY too many of them have no business raising a kid and cannot even take care of themselves, simple lack of class, respect, upbringing, and brainpower. I'd love to see harsher and stricter punishments and penalties to parents who have no business raising a kid.
#2. Schools need to be more strict. Bring back real punishments instead of the coddling crap they do now. They should be able to do whatever is necessary to ensure a safe school, and a real education to the youth of America. And I mean really teach, not what is currently considered teaching (and I don't blame teachers/schools 100% for the crap that is currently called an education, the federal government holds a large percentage of the blame too).
So I feel for the schools in a sense. Every punishment gets criticized, overall scores of the students are examined too close, the federal government putting in unreal expectations, etc, etc, etc. However, schools need to realize they are dealing with tons of deadbeat worthless parents, and due to that, they need to step it up and understand that while the whole situation stinks, it's still up to them to ensure the America of tomorrow doesn't get any worse than the America of today and act accordingly. That simply means to do whatever needs to be done, regardless of how "harsh" it may come across to the braindead parents that have no clue. Schools need to stand up to the federal government and explain just how bad things are and what is necessary to get this country back on the right track. It won't be a quick and easy procedure, but the country is hemorrhaging, and is on its way to bleeding out. Little band-aids won't do the trick, major changes need to happen just to stop the bleeding and hold water. We're easily 3 generations away from things really getting any better, but the worse this country gets, the harder it will be to get it back on the right track (provided it doesn't reach the point of no return).
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.....
