many of us may have trouble understanding the new thinking at HEB ISD. Thanks to a few council meetings in Bedford, concerned parents and citizens are begining to see the new driving force of change. Plane old greed! Single parent families with hard to control kids face a new threat. The school district is has found a rich new source of revenue ticketing childred in school. Teachers can now demand money from students who offend them with profane language, skipping classes..the list is ever expanding. of course these proceeds will be used 'for the children'. The self serving ISD is now finding it nessisary to plead before city councils for tough new laws aimed at families of home schoolers and parents who do not have school permission for abcense's. The new laws offer only 'defenses' to prosecution and does away with the question of rights. Its to the descreation of a police officer to arrest You, your child, any employee of a buisness. Those of us that have nice leave it to beaver families..were good. but you poor misfits with problems. we will slowly outlaw you and your existance. It's for the children

Although this post is very interesting, use spell check. Great ideas, nonetheless.

my children go to this school district. i believe this is insane. Of course they should have some type of disciplinary action for children who are disrespectful or using profanity in the school. i agree they should take measure but not by some type of charge to a parent. they need to make them do community service or even things around the school to which it will help the school but to charge low income families to have to go to a judge and pay all this money is just plan stupid.

I feel it's needed, so that the parents that do not know where there kids are will have to get involved with the kids!

Look, regardless of whether you come from a high or low income family, you should teach your kid respect. They should respect themselves, respect other people, respect their elders, and respect authority figures. If they are cussing and swearing at teachers, the student AND the parent should be punished. It is the parent's fault that the child is disrespectful. And how do you punish the parent?
Well, we could just throw them in jail. How would that affect their low income? I think hitting the pocketbook is a great wake-up call that your kid needs a good beating about the head and shoulders.
Don't like it? Teach your kid not to swear at authority figures and elders!
