You somehow have come into agreement with the left who dislikes this woman while the right defends her.

Are you talking about the school bus monitor? Who on the left dislikes her? I didn't realize that people had taken sides on the way that bus monitor was treated based on their political ideologies. I was upset about the way she was treated and I don't know her to like or dislike her but I am definitely on the left.

Teachers are not getting bullied, kids still are. Despite all the awareness about bullying the epidemic of bullying will never stop ntil we crack down hard. Bullies need to be physically punished (including torture) and humiliated in front of their classmates. Their bullying spirit needs to be broken through brute force.

Teachers arnt getting bullied? You must be a young person to say that.

I have been threatened physically several times. When asked what I will do, I always say that I will defend myself. When they ask if I will hit back, I repeat what I just said.
'
The only things that I really flip out about are my house and my car. If I catch you near my house im going to strike first and ask questions later, same with my car. I say that because a student threatened to slash the tires on my car and I inherited and paid it off when my mom died. I told them that if i caught anyone near my car I would handle it my way and when I was done, I would call the police. Nowadays, these kids need to learn that you just don't mess with some people.

Oh come on. Don't you know it's just a phase they are going through? They'll grow out of it. Just ask their mothers. You know, the mothers that tell their kids "no" when they want something and the kid tells the mother they better buy it for them or they will call the police and tell them that mommy hit them (exercising his "rights").

Well you know that none of that is possible. But I'm thinking of getting a group of kids together and calling them "Beat the Bully". Teachers and parents can put a contract out on the bully. How does that sound?

Once the student leaves the school grounds the schools have no say so. The government is not needed to run kids lives. That's the job of the parents.

What parents? Most kids don't even know where their parents are? The breakdown of the family unit is the start of these problems we're seeing with kids these days.

This was my elementary school experience. The teachers were so mean to us sometimes, and I'm not just talking about trying to maintain classroom conduct, but actually going out of their way to pick on students. For example, I remember when a teacher of mine took a paper I had worked hard on, criticized it for about 15 minutes, then tore it to shreds in front of the whole class. It really shocks me to hear that kids are bullying teachers nowadays.

Oh good lord--take a look in the mirror. Kids are badly behaved because parents don't hold them accountable at home, so why would they think they have to behave in school? If my kids misbehave at school, they're in big trouble at home as well. One or two episodes of parking your backside in your room for a week with no TV, cell phone or computer, and ton of extra chores is an amazing attitude adjustor. Schools are there to teach your children, and not to act as glorified baby sitters and surrogate parents because mom and dad won't do their job. When you have parents who think teachers are "boo hooing and whining" when they complain about poorly parented, badly behaved, disrespectful kids, it just reinforces my point. To blame badly behaved kids on "teachers unions, government indoctrination from the homosexual agenda and global warming" isn't just laughable--it makes me wonder about your mental health. This thread is the strongest evidence I've seen in a long while to justify why some people, especially some people on this board, should never be allowed to reproduce.
