The teacher may not be prosecuted, but make no mistake, she will be penalized. She will penalize herself. She will have to live with the embarrassing fact that she was pushed past her limits and found herself in this uncomfortable situation after years of service.

I know, I know, we have always had knuckleheads that fight in school, but I think this current breed of knuckleheads appears to be particularly reckless and could potentially hurt someone if they felt like it. I'm sorry - I'm saying it - but it's true.
I could give you reports from my school of children being VERY mean spirited, bullying and just generally taking everything for granted. People are posting that there are regular fights at RICHWOODS - yes - RICHWOODS.
This conflict resolution thing that the administrators are doing to resolve issues hoping people will learn to do better, takes too long. By the time progress is made on the bULLY - the good kid - the good teacher - the good parents will be gone.
I'm sorry for this whole unfortunate situation but, as a teacher in a D150 school, I see substitutes in my building every day. I will be honest, I have NEVER EVER been so embarrassed as I have been this year by the behavior (off the wall) of the children in the classrooms with subs. Its like a free for all. Students being plucked out by administration one at a time for unbelievable disrespect towards an adult. I have been told over and over, I will NEVER come back to a D150 school. It is a huge problem. Please come visit any school and walk past a classroom with a sub and it is utter chaos, no matter the age of the children or subject matter being taught. It is shameful to say the least.

I am a parent of a student at Rolling Acres-Edison where 7th grade students were made to feel as though their behavior toward a substitute teacher played a role in his untimely death over the weekend.

Did this Dad go to far? What would you do? Personally, the only thing I think he did that was wrong was threatening to kill the little knuckleheads. Additionally, I understand why he felt the need to check the bus driver - but threatening the bus driver with bodily harm, was a bit much...
A father furious because his 13-year-old daughter who suffers from cerebral palsy had been bullied stormed onto a school bus and threatened the children who teased her, deputies in Florida said.
The girl had to be hospitalized because of stress from the confrontation. The father, James Willie Jones, was arrested Thursday after he stormed onto the bus two weeks ago and later released on bail. He hopes to apologize to the children, said his attorney, Natalie Jackson.
"The little girl was scared to go to school. There has to be something done about school bullying," Jackson said.
Jones boarded the school bus on Sept. 3 because several boys were allegedly bullying his daughter, according to the sheriff's office report. He told deputies the boys placed an open condom on his daughter's head, smacked her on the back of her head, twisted her ear and shouted rude comments at her, the report said.
Video surveillance from the bus shows Jones asking his daughter to point out the students accused of harassing her. Jones is heard threatening those who bully his daughter, and he also threatens the bus driver.

Never be ashamed to run.
These techniques may be somewhat outdated, what with folks using guns and railroad ties and all - adjust accordingly.
