  1. OUR SCHOOL R NOT SAFE 4 OUR KIDS UNDER THEIR WATCH – BULLYING – CUTTING – FENTYNAL – CRACK – SUICIDE – IS OUT OF CONTROL IN OUR SCHOOLS – MY KIDS DEAL WITH THESE PROBLEMS EVERY DAY LIKE MANY OTHER KIDS DO IN OUR SCHOOLS – TEACHERS DESERVE NOTHING

    1. Don’t even dare blame kids behavioral problems on the teachers. As it is the teachers can’t even look at a kid the wrong way let alone raise their voice to punish them so I’d knock off the blaming the teachers for your kids poor behavior. Parent’s need to start acting like parents and not their kids best friend for a change. If a kid is constantly in trouble at school all you have to do is look at the parents. These days it’s one parent (most time the mother) with multiple children from multiple fathers and a revolving door of boyfriends that these mothers introduce to their kids within a week or 2 of dating. On top of that just to keep the kids quiet there is unlimited internet and Xbox/PlayStation, tablet, whatever just so the parents doesn’t have to deal with them. I have witnessed this with my own eyes and it makes me sick to my stomach!! I’m really starting to think that a LOT of these woman (one in particular that I know personally) have kids just for the baby bonus. I’m not even kidding, I know a 27 year old that has FOUR kids under the age of 10 and is pregnant with the 5th right now! 5 kids and 4 fathers! She makes almost as much as I do and I work full time. Between her welfare, child support, child tax credits (2 of her kids are autistic so jackpot there, disability money) she is pulling in $5600 a month while living in housing, and she also has a 5 bedroom house provided to her through DSSAB.
      Now with all that being said I don’t agree that teachers just close down the schools but I do sympathize and understand what it must be like having many kids with issues fighting with them everyday. I personally respect the hell out of them because I wouldn’t be able to last 5 minutes having NO power to get these kids under control..and what’s worse is the kids KNOW the teachers are powerless and use it to their full advantage because these kids were taught from their parents that if the teacher ever does punish them to come home and tell mommy immediately. Then mommy hops on the phone to flip out in the teacher right in front of the child. Those teachers should be making at least 100K just to start, and that still wouldn’t be enough for me to even consider taking that job. Now if they brought the strap back I’d work for 60K and go from there.

  2.
