    she'll probably get fired for her troubles but some Catholic school will pick her up and pay her more.

    I was wondering what Catholic schools pay more. Most of my teachers through school had extra jobs just to make ends meet.

    And we wonder what the heck is wrong with public schools and why people spend the money to send kids to private schools.

    A teacher can't discipline a kid within reason for fear that they will be suspended or worse yet fired.

    In my day I knew if I got in trouble at school, that I was dead meat at home. Now parent immediately rush in to say "how dare you, my little johnny would never do something like that and I'm going to sue the school for damaging his reputation".

    Did anyone care how the kid who was verbally assaulted felt or how her parents felt about the whole situation.

    Quick story for you.

    I dated a girl years ago and the first time I met her parents they told me a story about how their oldest son, who was in high school, was considering a local Jesuit school. He wanted to go there for football and they thought it would be a better environment for him than the local public school. I guess they had finished the tour of the school and were heading to the office to enroll the kid when they saw a teacher "throw" a student against the lockers. They knew I had attended Catholic schools and wondered my reaction. My reaction was he probably deserved it. Needless to say, the kid did not enroll as they thought it was too harsh, even though the kid was having serious discipline problems at his current public high school.

    Catholic schools have changed a lot regarding discipline. Back in the good old days, Roger Bacon HS in Cincy had an entire wall w/ various paddles displayed on it, and the franciscans would use whichever one struck their fancy. Now, we can expel kids if they are major pains in the asses, but if a teacher used corporal punishment they would probably be fired very quickly.

    Soap! The horror! (CNN Article)

    http://www.cnn.com/2004/US/Northeast/06/11/teacher.soap.ap/index.html

    I went to a private school through the 5th grade. The first thing you saw when you entered the principal's office was a fraternity/sorority-style paddle that had holes drilled into it. This wasn't for show -- when you did something ill-advised, if it was bad enough, you got that paddle. I survived that, as did my peers. We did the whole soap in the mouth deal, we wrote things on the blackboard 1000s of times. We sat in the corner. If kids were acting like whiners or crybabies, they were called as much.

    We're breeding generations of people who believe they should be shocked and outraged at everything. "SOAP???" "In his mouth!!?!" "FIRE HER!" What's lost in this story is that the kid didn't complain, he behaved the rest of the day, and I bet it would have been a while before he did it again. Until of course his teacher was suspended for it. Now what lesson has he learned?

    The pussification of America continues. The only investigation that needs to happen is one to find out where our collective balls went.

    The kid calls a female classmate a 'cunt' (I have to assume), and the teacher is the one that gets really punished. God I hate this shit.

    So where are the parents calling for the principal or superintendent to get fired? Or to recall the school board? Our schools are run by democracy. If they won't discipline shit, then guess where you gotta look.

    That's right where it is, btw. The stupid jerk off parents. They won't raise their kids correctly, and won't let anyone else do it either. Forget the kid -- bring dad's sorry ass in and wash his mouth out.

    Edit: Just read that the kid's in a foster home. Presumably the sperm donor is already paying some other debt to society. :roll2:
