You speak volumes for the ineptifude of public school teachers.
"What do you do when a student brings knives and guns to school?"
Are you stupid or what?
It seems the schools know what to do when a student draws a picture of a gun ... right?
Public schools need to be shut down as a public menace.
The problem will only get worse until school children are all given vouchers ... and parents allowed to choose the school of their choice. That will never happen under democrat ... who are owned by the teacher's union.
Exactly where in this post do you see that question as you quoted? Please do not mislead or misquote.

Yes, the trained educators, security, police, and administrators know what to do.

I know the correct answer and my successful experiences in these past potentially fatal instances have proven that. Thanks for the opportunity to express that.

Teachers, security, police, administrators take weapons away from students every day in schools throughout the US.

You missed the point entirely.

The weapons are not being distributed by the schools or the employees.

They enter the buildings with the public AND private schooled youth who procured them FROM THE COMMUNITY/HOMES/NEIGHBORHOODS/ PARENTS/FAMILIES/FRIENDS/GANGS .

GET IT?

AND NOMATTER WHICH POLITICAL PARTY IS IN POWER...IT HAS HAPPENED AND WILL CONTINUE.

Obviously you have a political agenda
KIDS OF REPUBLICANS KILL TOO

Can't wait for those vouchers when violent city gang members infiltrate your suburban schools and are sitting next to your kids and grandkids.

You are in for a tremendous surprise.

VOUCHERS WILL NOT REMOVE THE ROOT OF THE PROBLEMS

Try reading your posed question number three .... Gosh ... are you ADD? Is your attention span that short? Burned out on drugs? Just what is your problem?

Teachers can do nothing about real guns ... but they can suspend a student for drawing a picture of one?
Yep ... that is what passes for progressive thinking.
Please

Could you please rewrite #3? It isn't the same question, is it?

Teachers CANNOT SUSPEND ANYONE.

I'm discussing real guns and violence in today's schools...are you talking about paper and pencil drawings?

Correct and that is why all native born PRs are not being asked to reapply for their original birth certificates dirctly from PR by July..

For years they have been selling their identities or they were stolen. The selling price was from $5,000 to $10,000 per ID.

Local law enforcement has known this for years as they have been arresting Dominicans and others with PR IDs.

(CBS/AP) Officials at an Arizona school suspended a 13-year-old boy for sketching what looked like a gun, saying the action posed a threat to his classmates

You do have ADD ... and can't focus.
You say teachers can't suspend a student with a real gun?

Teachers seem to have no problem suspending a student who draws a picture of a gun.

Vouchers are the only remedy for this progressive insanity.

Two years ago there was a case outside Orlando ... where two 15 yr old boys who were both on probation for burglary, were caught on school grounds with a handgun. Those two were back in school two days later ... perhaps on super secret probation?

But yet they can suspend a child for drawing a gun ...

Now speaks in a US school - Motivational message? Be a great murderer, cartel and drug leader and grow up just like me. Kill union workers in Colombia along with human rights workers and the US will welcome you on their shores and in their schools.
And anyone wonders what is wrong with the colombian population in Central Falls?
They love this murderer and were excited to see and hear him.
Understand this - they love Uribe and hate the US teachers? What is wrong with this picture?
Disgraceful
I don't agree with Uribe 100% of the time, but he has made his country a much better and safer place than it was. Uribe is not perfect, but, he is not the awful things you said about him.

As if the teacher's union is not the dominant force in our public schools ... You can repeat your propoganda all you want ... repitition does not make it any less of a lie.
It was a teacher who reported the picture of gun that got the child suspended. But a teacher is not going to report a real gun?

Public schools are have become totally inept ... There is no fixing them.

As long as democrats are in power, the public schools and teacher's unions will be allowed to poorly educate children. Teacher's unions are among the highest donors to the democrat party. Perhaps now that corporations are allowed to donate in sums near labor unions, we may see more parody in politics.
Vouchers are the only thing that will save public education.

we need to disban all Unions...Period

Listen people racism in this country is an absolute J O K E
As long as people are people there will be some sort of race issues period
Most Americans do not care if you are blk wht blu purple or pink as long as you work and do not suck off the tit of society.
As long as you work and take care of your families and aren’t robbing others to live, I could care less about color My neighbor is a blk man and he is a great man, Army Vet and still works hard. In 16 yrs we have had no problems what so ever, We neither have thought that one or the other where racist. But you see the actual LEFT of this country continually making it an issue. There are lazy whts and lazy blks, Get over it.
Not all blks voted for Ohbama and not all whts voted for McCain.
You leftists surely like to stir and stir the pot more everyday.
NO ONE was spat upon or called the “N” word its all make believe from the Far Left in this country.
Now who are the far left?
Woodstock goers, Children and Grand children of the 1930’s and 1940’s American Nazi party.
Rich Liberals, Anti American “Forefather” haters.
Socialistic piglets that need “Mother” Government.
It is their agenda to collapse this nation, with the assistance of democrats.
And as you can see it is indeed happening just that way.
They are using Health care, Immigration, Education, Taxes, and Cap and Trade, to do this. The Obama Bill will collapse many American businesses through “Universal Health Care”
Caterpillar will have to put out “1” Billion dollars the beginning of 2011.
How does the Messiah expect that American companies will stay in business?
See its all a Communistic Democrat plan to collapse our country.
They will put insurance companies out of business and then pass a single payer system. Look out people!!!

Do the research

Evidently his attempts at remaking himself have fooled a number of gullible people but that still does not change the truth

If one does not want the truth about him verbalized or written, one should not do them

Hey Guys, I'm new on this forum. My state, Tennessee, has announced they will receive over 500 million dollars of Obama money over the next 4 years. It's called "Race to the Top." Apparently, teachers' evaluations are now going to be based almost completely on student test scores. That way administration can get rid of teachers with low test scores. I've noticed on the news that your teachers are going through something like this as well. Any advice or words of wisdom for the Tennessee teachers?

Yeah ... do what public school teachers have always done ... lower the curriculum, to make it easier to get higher grades ... or in the case of standardized tests, you teach the answers to the specific questions on the test.

Teachers and schools are being set up to fail

1 Spec ed students receive big money to pretend to be unable to answer correctly so they will always do poorly on purpose

2 Urban schools will always do worse due to the high number of spe ed students, gang members, poverty rate, absenteeism, etc

3 Ever since mental health advocates closed institutions, those students are now in schools

4 Urban areas have higher numbers of single parent families

Urban schools will always be on the bottom and are being set up to deliberately fail...fewer tax dollars, more violent population, etc

Also, most students with English as a second language are in urban schools

Most students with emotioinal and psycholoical challenges are in urban schools also there

Most violent dangerous gang members in urban schools terrorizing those who do well academically

Issue vouchers for all school children ... Chelsea Clinton did not attend a public school ... nor does Obama's kids ... Allow all children a choice of schools. Democrats won't allow it, because the teacher's unions are very heavy donors to the democrat party. Meantime, our children are being poorly educated ... due to the teacher's union.
