As a teacher in the city school district I would like to add that WE are NOT afraid of students at all.... We have been stripped of all our tools to help diminish problem behavior! We as teachers and administrators have no power, we can not kick disruptive students out, we can not send them home, we need to keep them in our room where they continue to cause problems and distract the 80% of students who want to learn! They continue to dr disruptive and disrespectful because they know we have no power.... It all boils down to the almighty $, if kids are in school the district receives more money... Which is why they need to stay in the classroom now regardless of their behavior... What the state/politicians don't seem to understand is the more disruption we have in the classroom ie, disruptive students, the less kids there will be receiving a quality education! It's nearly impossible to teach anything with substinsnce when you are trying to extinguish fires for at least half the class time :-(
