I'm just curious. I have been in two different school districts between last year and this year and have been very disappointed in the way discipline is handled. In my first district, it seemed like many issues were brushed under the rug, which was frustrating, but if the offense was serious enough, they would go ahead and suspend kids either in school or out of school. This year, I am in a new district and I see the same thing happening, only worse. I have a student whose mother requested and received an administrative placement at another school. His behavior was so severe, he lost the placement and is back at our school and in my class. He routinely vindictively trips, hits, and kicks innocent people for no reason. Yesterday, he yelled F*** You! in the middle of Music. Later in the day, he forcefully shoved a girl onto the floor and then a moment later, shoved another student over a desk and began punching him. I called for an administrator who came and removed him from my class. I was shocked when he walked in to school today. Why wasn't he suspended?!?! I realize our school is trying to reduce the number of office referrals, but come on! He is using the other kids as punching bags and all we merely do is call his mom who won't do anything with him either? I am beyond frustrated.
