Is Education In The Big City Getting Soft? Schools Chancellor Walcott Says No Students may be catching a break if they misbehave in school. The rules surrounding suspensions in New York City schools are changing.
The changes to the discipline code should result in far fewer suspensions, CBS 2s Vanessa Murdock reported Wednesday.
Our goal is to make sure the schools are providing a safe environment for our students, but also we just dont push students out of the classroom where theyre not learning as well, Schools Chancellor Dennis Walcott said.
What will be different? Well, for starters Walcott said cutting class and cursing will no longer be grounds for suspension.
Neither will smoking, something that left a few parents bewildered.

What does Nanny Bloomberg say about smoking?
In other words, the student goons in the NYC schools have pulled a Cloward-Piven on the administration (flooded it with the things that will no longer be “bad”) and the administration caved.
“What will be different? Well, for starters Walcott said cutting class and cursing will no longer be grounds for suspension.”
Well, discipline hurts the students’ “feelings” so it of course must be removed according to the current leftist mindset.
“Neither will smoking, something that left a few parents bewildered.”
That is surprising considering that’s the one vice modern liberals consider anathema.
Just let a non-Eric Holder’s person bring a plastic picnic knife or a couple of aspirin or an asthma inhaler and see what happens.
I wonder what will happen to a student they catch reading a Bible????
How interesting that the chancellor admits that the students aren't learning in the classroom. Why shouldn't he let them smoke, drink beer, play cards, and cuss? At least the system gets the "rears in the chairs" money, if they're in the building not learning.
But that won't stop Bloombutt from holding teachers to the same or even higher standards for the fake grades everyone has to turn in. They will have lousy classroom observation reports because the students will be acting out, and lousy grade stats because no one listened in the first place and no one will have spent even 1 minute studying for tests. Why should they? The teachers are forced to pass students who don't do any work or be harassed until they do with threats of disciplinary action and/or firing.
Nice going, Bloombutt. A great case in point of why politicians should keep their hands out of education.
