would people at a private school put up with this? this is hate, these are children
No, they expel such students and send them back to public school.
Public schools are left with the ones the private schools and charter schools find too challenging.
This is the result of refusing to permit schools to use corporal punishment. When you cannot swat the kid for bad behavior when small, you end up with an over-sized “time out” room with padded walls to prevent injury and a locked door to keep them in.
it appears that the violence and hate is all on the side of the kids...violent not violent later mom doesn’t know how to handle er kids...
Listen why not pick up a couple of bucks and Substitute in a SPED classroom for a couple of weeks, show us how it is done. Get back to me after you have actually taught some of these "little angels."
Actually, there are private schools who **welcome** children with these problems. Check the New Times advertising section for private schools. These private schools aren’t complaining or whining how hard it is. They are daring people on Free Republic to teach these children.
And....I bet the true taxpayer cost for these children is actually **more** than what it costs to send the child to a private school whose reputation depends on having success with them.
By the way, when all the funds for K-12 schooling are added up ( federal, state, and local) the true cost of schooling a government K-12 child is about ( on average) $17,000/year/child. There is only one private school in my state with a tuition higher than that. It is a boarding school and has its own private golf course.
