An Escalation of Misbehavior, Increasing Violence Not Adequately Checked
I worry about how many victims it will take before we take bold action and use every tool in our kit to get discipline under control, and violent, dangerous students moved to separate locations/programs so they won't destroy the learning environment for students and teachers as they are currently doing.
I'm going to continue to talk about the most egregious discipline infractions and the anemic ramifications these students receive each month. Eventually, hopefully, this will get the attention it so desperately deserves from administrators and the other school board members. This is the way parents and teachers who have contacted me want me to proceed-and so I will continue my attempt to keep the focus on these issues going forward.
