Schools and the Courts

This is a good look at the school systems in the US. I’m going to say these educators and administrators just don’t know how to handle students so they rely on the courts to hand out the punishment. These schools need to get involved with the parents and put these kids in detention. It is a joke that we are wasting additional tax payer money sending these kids to court for running in the halls. They have police officers writing tickets to students in LA because they are late for school. Don’t the police officers have anything better to do, like stopping the drug dealer from selling drugs or robbing somebody.

    They want someone else to deal with their problems. That way they can say well we did all we could. What they should do is deal with all school discipline in schools, create after school detention, saturday detention, get the parents involved, make the kids clean the school or other community service on weekends and after school. Create programs to deal with these kids. They should be thinking of progressive ways to educate these kids, rather then trying to have them arrested.

    the problem is also due to everybody suing everybody for the smallest things. These schools are being overly cautious because they are afraid one kid is going to go crazy and then they will be blamed for not doing enough. Now they are getting law enforcement involved just to cover their asses. Exactly like you said, they don’t want to put in the effort to really help these kids.
