There's an easy fix to this problem and a number of others:

DEPORTATION.

What politicians will be brave enough to do the honorable thing?

Teachers in Califa need to pack.

I recommend the 1911 in this its centennial year.

The perfect storm of liberalism: Mix in unions, illegal immigrants, single parent homes, cultural degradation, militant indoctrination, false accusations of everything “racist” overpaid, underworked, over benefitted administrators, the ACLU and presto!

There you have it.

This is unacceptable. Violators should be reported to the Police and sent to Juvenile Court to stand in front of a hard nosed no nonsense Judge.

Money quote...”the school only gets paid when the student is present, so they do not suspend the student for their unacceptable behavior”....

Should be on the Another Reason to Home School ping list.

Hmmmm.... I wonder? Did "old schol teachers" get sued every time they disciplined a student? Did they parents support the "old schol teachers" or take the side of their spoiled brat every time?

Did the kids come to school with guns and shivs threatening them?

you must be a teacher. but these were old school teachers that always ran their classroom well, todays teachers aren’t equipped, and their superiors and the student parents do not back them up.

Student attendance begets ADA (think $) for each student in a class per day

If they are suspended then no ADA for the duration of the suspension. Students and Parents know there is no real downside to misbehaving as they are so desperate for the money they will not discipline the little thugs or back up the teachers who try and suspend them. When you bring in the parents there are a million excuses why their little angel needs to stay in school or misbehaves.

Admin says ok he can stay and off we go to the races

My 1st grade teacher had one of those....the edges were all rounded. She never used it.

Now, the nun...She'd run up and down the aisle dousing us with Holy Water to "Get the devil out".

And I'll wager $10 that neither the 1st grade teacher nor the nun were ever bullied by their students.

In most cases, I’ve come to realize that many (not all) teachers are victims...

Victims of the unions, being “useful idiots” of the thug bosses.

Victims of the students, who in many cases are running around, out of control. If anybody wants to take a good look at what I’m talking about, google “Southwest High School Kansas City,” my alma-mater.

And victims of the school administrations/governments, with the inability to take control of their classes without the possibility of law suits.

No, I am not. I went to the "old schools". I went to private schools and I see how the teachers of today are forced to handle kids.

I would not be a teacher today because of the way they are forced to handle kids. I'm old school and wish they were today.

I used to date a fourth grade teacher. She told me that one day two fourth graders were fighting and she was not allowed to touch them unless another teacher was present. She had to wait for another teacher to show up before she could break up the fight. All about lawsuits and protecting yourself from parents.

My wife quit teaching a couple of years ago. Several reasons, but lack of support of administration was one - she would discipline the kid, parents would complain, and she would be forced to let the little sweethearts back in class. Thus, no discipline. Can’t blame it all on the teachers, although a lot of them don’t really care if they are in control of the classroom. She also got tired of working hard to educate kids, then sending them up to teachers who didn’t really care if the kids learned or not.

I teach and have had to literally pull kids off of my principal and yet she refuses to press charges. A couple of years ago a teacher in my district miscarried at 3 months when a kid punched her in the stomach. The kids know that we can’t do anything to them, and the parents of these kids have the same poor attitude about learning that the kids have.

In most municipalities, it is against the law to carry on school campuses and other public buildings.

The teacher is writing the kid up on a district discipline form. S/he has no say as to whether the admin, suspends/disciplines the kid. If the kid is suspended the district [school system] is not paid Federal funds...only paid for the body count [daily attendance] of students. Relisten to the vid.

A couple of decades ago, you used to be able to get a hold of the parent; parent would back you up and discipline the kid.

Today, you cannot get a hold of the parent; when you do, you are yelled by the parent for being a racist. *My precious snowflake never does that*. Dads are not in the picture. Mom is in jail.

In parochial school, they would kick you out, if problems were not resolved. In public school you must take EVERYONE, regardless. It’s the law.

If state and federal funding were instead dependent upon the number of students who achieve at least minimal proficiency, then the financial incentive would be to kick out those students who disrupt the education of others.

Much of the discipline in my grandchildren's schools is dependent on the Principal and the Superintendent.

Having attended school events in which my grandchildren were involved, the students were noisy and unruly when the Principals didn't enforce discipline. I was shocked at the difference in behavior in differing school districts.

The disciplined school district's children performed at a much higher level academically as well in extracurricular activities. It was very apparent which was which.

Administrators [earning six-figures] are afraid of the children/parents and they do not do their jobs. Rarely do they get their *hands dirty* and follow procedure or even have a procedure. Kids [of all ages] need consistency and boundaries.

Most of the kids are not raised in what *we* would call a 2-parent household. Most of these kids are surrounded by crime and criminals. Most of these kids are being raised by felons and criminals.

That is a sad commentary. I like the idea of one of our Freepers. . . success equals money, money sent to schools should not be based on attendance.

Sadly, our tax dollars and being wasted on Title 1 monies doled out by the government and based on poverty guidelines. It helps of have tons on poor families in your district. Keep them poor.

I would venture to guess no one is auditing how these funds are used.
