I'm not sure if it's the State I'm in or if it's common all over, but it seems like that administrators have a problem with being disciplinarians. For example, a student who is already established with suspension and administrative conferences, etc., took off running from the cafeteria today, he ran so fast that the teacher couldn't keep up with him and they had 8 adults looking for him. This is a kid who has a history of doing this and leaving the school property. He was eventually found and later I saw him come into the cafeteria to drop off a food tray and went right back to his regular classrooms. Or a student who is constantly disrupting the class, they get a time out or maybe a full day in school suspension if it was repetitive but it does not stop the behavior. Are the administrators hands tied that much? But if we as teachers do not report and something happens then they wonder why weren't we reporting/documenting this behavior from the beginning...any administrators on here who can weigh in or anyone have any good insight into this? Thanks.
