Jan 17th 2010 2:40PM I was a teacher for 20 years and I understand this mother's anger. I was also subjected to "bullying" by my students -called fifthy names, lied about to the principal ,arms rubbed against my breasts, hands under my skirt and assaults on my person. Not once did I get any support from the school principal.
The last straw came when one student tried to punch me in the breasts.I told the principal and his mother I was going to report this to the police. The principal told me that his mother threatened to sue the school district if I called the police. He and his friends said nothing happened (lies). If I called the police, she would make sure he was quiet and calm when they arrived. this would guarentee the police would do nothing. I handed in my resignation and left. I have never regretted my decision.
If your child is being bullied and knows the name of the person or persons responsible , report it to ther police immediately. School administrators are only interested in covering themselves and do not care about teachers or students.
Dec 5th 2008 6:25PM This issue came up about another presidential candidate who was born outside the U.S.A.whose was born to American citizen. Apparently,All the parents had to do was register the birth with the American Embassy.
Apr 12th 2007 11:52PM First,Don Imus was fired not for his offensive remarks or the protests about them.The bottom line was MONEY-No sponsors,no show.Bye,byeImus.
Second-Most people believe that the Constitutional guarentees of free speech means that people can say whatever they please whenever they please without consequence.This is NOT true.The Supreme Court has ruled that the First Amendment does NOT protect all forms of speech & printed material.
1-Advocate the violent overthrow of the American government.
2- Say or print lies about people -the former is slander,the latter is libel.
3-Make false claims that may cause injury to others such as crying fire in a crowded theater when there is no fire.
4-make imflammatory remarks to deliberately incite a crowd to riot,destroy property or injure others.
5-to make false statements under oath.
Jan 3rd 2007 6:31PM I see no reason why an individual should not be allowed to take an oath on the sacred book of their choice.Nor should that stir up contraversy. However,since the oath has to do with supporting & upholding the constition,perhaps the oath should sworn on a copy of the Constition itself.
Sep 8th 2006 10:07AM As a special education teacher,I realized immediately the No Child Left Behind was going to create big trouble for our school kids
1- No matter what you do, there will always be students who are below average.Obviously Bush & his NCLB supporters never learned what the word "average" means & how it is calculated.
2- Our students are unfairly compared to students of other countries whose school systems aredifferent from ours.Our government spends small fortunes to send groups of Congressmen overseas to find out why their students rank higher than ours and they come back with all the wrong reasons. The reason these countries graduate a higher percentage of high school students who do better on reading/math tests is very simple: Students who are not likely to do well in high school are NOT allowed to attend HS. Most countries require students to pass difficult tests to enter high school and college. Japan has NO special education programs and NO free public high schools. In Canada ,no student can receive a HS diploma until s/he has passed all the necessary courses.It is not unusual to find students as old as 22 or 23 in HS trying to pass classes they have failed more than once so they can get that diploma.
