What? Fighting in gym A is on your minds? Where are the teachers when these fights happen? I'm tired of all the mess that occurs in the middle school gyms. Get some teachers on duty and stop the nonsense.

There were something like 3 or 4 coaches with something like 100 kids or more. Unless you would like for the coaches to lock the kids inside the gym and keep them from visiting the restrooms, you will have to do with the teachers being in the gym watching the bulk of the kids. PE tends to be a dumping ground for those that can't seem to behave in other connection classes. Teachers can not be everywhere all the time. Granted there should be someone stationed in the lobby of the gym to monitor restroom traffic instead of grouped together talking sports or shooting the bull. There is room for improvement, but fights are going to happen because we have hormonal kids trying to prove how grown they are. That is where parental expectations comes in. You get in trouble at school you will get in trouble at home and be punished far longer than detention or 3 licks.

No doubt there are not a lot of parental expectations with the boy who posted the fight video. He seems to have a lot of stuff on his page to indicate his parents don't give a crap.

Teachers who are monitoring children need to monitor. They are all to guilty of talking sports and shooting the bull.

Rumor alert: I heard it was more to the tune of 250 kids to 5 teachers.

That is 50 kids each. More of a land fill than a dumping ground for the rough and ready crowd of middle schoolers.

The coaches need to get off their arse and have structured PE time for students. My son tells me one coach sits at his desk and plays his guitar. Our tax dollars NOT at work.
ouch

Yes, that is probably true. They should have more structure. So kids at the middle school do not HAVE to take PE? That is very nice to know.
yup

Problem is all connection classes are overcrowded because they don't have enough connection teachers. PE does need more structure and supervision. My kid is in the 10th grade and tells me that the coaches don't really care what you do as long as you don't bother them.

It is not OK to fight at school. With you being the older brother you should know better. What if y'all sorry little asses had to pay the hospital bill? How bad would you think you was than? Y'all little boys better wake up or your family will see you in the jail or prison. If you have fighting on your mind than you will never be somebody in life. You will become a women beater and your family will go broke cause they have to pay y'all way out. And to you big brother..... find you a high paying career like dr or lawyer before you become some guys peace of ass for making the wrong decision! Later

What happen to the in school boot camp S.T.A.R. they use to have in middle school and High school here? I remember those kids having to stand against a wall to eat their lunch and wear those black sweats suits. I think they need to bring that back or put a scared straight program in at the prison or county jail, along with parents giving 2 craps about how their kids act and what kind of menaces to society they are..(But we all know that is way to much to ask!)

I've seen a middle school coach down at Wal Mart mid day buying sugary/caffineted drinks to sell at the school.

Can't they get something healthy for the kids to drink?

Can't he buy the stuff at a different time so there will be more coaches doing what they are SUPPOSED to do, teaching PE?

My kids say they give them basketballs to throw and just walk away from them, fights and arguments happen all the time.

Coaches too lazy to organize and supervise a simple game of Horse.

Lots of the kids don't know who their daddy is and the grandmother that's raising them is doing all she has little or no control once they get ten or so.

We need to figure out how to have and enforce strict disciplines in our schools while keeping the children in school so they can receive a good education. Without an education the cycle will not be broken, and things will get worse.

If you doubt what I say go to Walmart and try to have a conversation with one of the 26 year old grandmothers!

Grandparents should not have to raise the kids of parents that are still alive and not locked up!

Just let something bad enough happen to a kid and see if a lawyer can come up with an improper supervision suit against the BOE for not having enough pesonnel in place to monitor/control the number of kids in the gym.

Unless the state teacher/student ratio is being violated by terms given in the state law, you can't do anything. We have known class sizes are too large for proper learning, but budget cuts have increased it without any care or concern.

Charter status will give us even more control. Meaning class sizes are not going to get any smaller anytime in the future.
