I do not believe a young child should be arrested, especially for school infractions. But children can be terribly destructive and physical toward teachers. There do not seem to be good, legal ways to protect teachers from being bitten or scratched, or to prevent destruction of classroom materials and property in a massive meltdown.

Whatever technique is used, such as quiet rooms, outcries rise against them.

Schools reflect the society they are surrounded by. Our present society is unstable and unfair. I don’t think that corporal punishment is the solution. I do think kids need more recess time, more calming activities and more interventions. But many students bring problems from home with them to school.

She ( the 6 yr old arrested) may never again get into any type of trouble!



:
did you call the cops and have your 3 1/2 year old nephew put in handcuffs?...and if not why not?..he's only 2 1/2 years younger than the child you seem to figure it was alright to handcuff at school.had you done that...just thinkhe might never have gotten into any type of trouble again.

The unfortunate little girl in the video will probably NEVER trust another cop again...too bad...very sad.

There's NO COMPARISON between a six year old and an adult...so YES...it DOES matter.
