How long until some Freepers who defend every student under all circumstances, comes screaming on this thread trashing the teacher/school and saying that these poor children should not be held responsible because they are just too young and immature (and maybe “learning disabled”), and thus are not capable of understanding the severity of their actions?
These poor youts should not be held responsible because they are just too yout-like and immature, and thus are not capable of understanding the severity of their actions.
About 20 minutes.
I’m with you. The Catholic Church, of which I have never been a member, considers the age of accountability to be second grade, which is when children will receive their First Communion.
A second grader knows right from wrong. While they are certainly children, they know what they were doing was wrong, because obviously they could undertand that they were unhappy with being scolded and they were seeking revenge for that - if they can understand all that, they can be held accountable.
They should be expelled and be placed somewhere that they can receive counseling and I would suggest that their homes be investigated as well.
