What is the schools coming to when they take away a boys chance to not graduate. This boy was outside not in school taking a test. This school needs Oyler back. He cared about a kid getting an education. Do they not realize that if this boy doesn't graduate that there is a chance that he could become a highschool dropout. He served his detention now let him take his exams. I missed too many days and Oyler still let me take the tests and pass. I missed the last two months of senior year. they let me take the exams and still graduate. I even got an English award.
This is over a cell phone in chorus...outside...

The whole cell phone thing at BCHS is taken way too seriously. I've heard the students don't get a warning the first time, they get 2 detentions. Anyone know if this is true??

Follow the rules and there are no problems.

If the boy decides to become "a dropout", then that's his bad decision. The boy is responsible for his own actions.

I don't think they get two detentions the first time. They get it taken away and the parents have to pick it up. Whats sad is this boys mother just passed away...he probably doesn't have anyone to help fight this.

well, from what I hear, It was the use of profanity at the teacher that got him in trouble, the cell phone was just the beginning. Of course by the paper it didnt say that but that was his story, not the schools

Everyone is made aware of the rules. Everyone knows the consequences when caught breaking the rules. If they still choose to break the rules and they get punished, then then I say they should quit their whining, take their punishment like a responsible person would do, and move on.

I'm sure this young person would not have been punished so severely if he had "taken it like a man" and not resorted to cursing the teacher. Reading between the lines, it appeared that this was not the first time he had run in to trouble at the school.

Chorus is an extracurricular activity. It's like drama, sports, etc. You have to follow the rules of the handbook, and keep your attitude in check. Regardless of whether the incident takes place during school hours, they are still representing the school, even at chorus concerts.

Obviously, he didn't graduate with his class.
Personally, I feel bad for him, if it's ture what has happened to him, his mother, his grandmother, etc.
But, wrong is wrong.

The School System down here is rediculous! The Teacher's in Southern Illinois make more money than the ones in Chicago! The Classes are over crowded and they don't take time with the students! My Grandson which is in 1st grade may have to take it over, because his classroom is packed? Whatever happened to "no one left behind?" When you hold a student back, it tears away their self esteem. I don't care what you say, that is the truth. The student has to return to the School, and see his fellow students in a higher grade and there he/she is doing the same grade over! Now they also have detention in the 1st grade, if the Teacher was doing their JOB as they should be, these problems shouldn't exist! The problem with this situation is that its all about the MONEY!

Actually, you couldn't pay me to be a teacher now days. It isn't the teachers, it's the parents! And the fact that teachers cannot discipline kids. I dont believe in beating a child, but I do believe in a good old fashion whippin', and not even parents are allowed that now. That and the fact they took God out of school.

I'm continuously amazed that it's never our fault; it's always someone elses fault. Blame the teachers, blame the school, blame someone, but never look in the mirror.

When the paddles hung in principals offices, there was definately more respect in the schools and my kids knew that if they got one at school, don't think they wouldn't get one when they got home.

When the government stuck their noses where they didn't belong, it started a whole new era of unruly kids who don't respect anything. It is a sad state of affairs when a teacher can't punish the ones that need it and on the other hand, can't hug the ones that need to be hugged.

If they do get in trouble then the parents sue because their "sweet little brat" got in trouble, what kind of message is that to send to the teens of today. Maybe the parents should take time to spend with their children instead of pushing their raising off on someone else.......you know, they do have to have some kind of learning that comes from home, too.

How much do you think a teacher should be paid to "raise" your child? Well, they aren't getting paid enough to raise the brats in today's society.

I am not laughing! I think it's pretty sad that you received an English award when you apparently didn't learn how to speak. Unless you are full of BS, which would be my guess......
