I agree 100% here. In my high school classes, the amount of time during class I need to spend addressing the behavior problems is probably almost double the time I need to spend dealing with the "good" kids. Granted, I could intentionally ensure I spend more time with the better students too, but there is only so much time in a class-period. If just one or two students in each class period were removed, the amount of time I could spend with all of the other kids would increase quite a bit. I'll admit, part of that may stem from the fact that my management system needs some more work. But with some of the kids that abhor school with such a burning passion, I'm not sure how to reach them anymore.... I'm not proud of that, but I'm simply at a loss.
