Well, clearly I can because I'm not about to leave the school, but my principal has finally taken his lack of discipline too far. He has not disciplined trouble students all year long. It has severely impacted how the school behaves as a whole. Teachers in all grade levels are commenting on it. Well, Thursday took the cake. Before school, I brought 4 boys to the office for hitting another student. All are in 5th grade, 2 of the hitters and the hittee are mine. The vice-principal is the only administrator there and tries to deal with it. When questioning the boy that was hit, it is learned that they were hitting him because another student was videotaping it. Come to find out, this is not the first time this has happened. VP decides she needs to wait for Principal to get back to take part in the discussion. Fast forward to end of day when we learn what the consequences of their actions will be. One boy will be suspended because he has been in many fights in the last few months. Suspended for ONE DAY!! Another boy, who has been in as many fights, but over a longer period of time and is still awaiting consequences from Camp a week ago, and the other 3 (two hitters and the cameraman) will get lunch time clean up duty for a week, providing the principal can find an adult who will supervise them. THAT IS ALL!!! I found out the next day that the boys' parents weren't even called. I am beyond disappointed in the principal. VP is livid that they are getting off so easy. Thank goodness only 23 days of school left, but what about for next year?
