"Teachers have always been the primary disciplinarians in the traditional classroom."???!!!<quoted text>No, liberals want the government to 'leave the kids alone'. Teachers have always been the primary disciplinarians in the traditional classroom. When the state intervenes by sending in the police or hires private armed guards to patrol the school corridors it undermines the authority of teachers for maintaining an orderly environment where learning can take place . In that context, young people are smart enough to know who they need to obey and who they can safely afford to ignore. It's the person with the big gun not the person with the book who gets the respect now.
So when did this happen? In your dreams last night?
"...young people are smart enough to know who they need to obey and who they can safely afford to ignore."!!!!
This is right out of Alice In Wonderland. You are a Mad Hatter and a Dumb Bunny.
So then why are school teachers and administrators across the nation cheating and changing test scores? H-m-m-m-m?
You are fascinated by the bling-bling of lies. You wear them like jewelry and have even become a jewelry-maker in your own right.
