There have been several kids expelled for carrying weapons this school year, But there has been one student who threatened an adult and two students with a knife and is still in high school. The police investigated the report and it turned out he stole the knife from a neighbor. So is Admin going to be held responsible when he goes off into one of his tantrums and kills someone. Family issues are not an acceptable excuse for violent behavior and are definately not an excuse for supporting it. There are alot of kids and parents which would feel safer with him gone. WHY ARE SO MANY WHITE KIDS CARRYING WEAPONS? DOES FORREST CITY HAVE A GANG PROBLEM IT IS TRYING TO COVERUP?

Obviously there's a gang problem. Hell the entire country has a gang problem. Government propaganda has screwed with the basic american family so much that morals barely exist in today's family. Hell most of the parents now are still kids. Their parents didn't teach them and their not going to be able to teach their kids and the cycle continues.

i am right with you on this debate. i was attending i.e.weldon and was given an trespassing notice for having behavoural difficulties which were caused from young trauma....but another student was not expelled only suspending for bringing a knife to scool and actually assaulting a person(s). does this seem right to you?

Sorry to tell you this, but children with special needs, mental and physical,are in fact held to different standards.In some cases the local schools administration hands are tied due to state and federal laws.They open themselves up to lawsuits if they try to isolate these individuals from the general population of students.Its a classic catch 22 ,one one hand they are admittedly different on the other you can't treat them different. It is OK to protect the disabled from the healthy children but you violate the rights of the disabled if you try to protect the healthy children from them.

Traveller is right. Advocates for the disabled and special needs children have pushed the courts for special protections for all children clssified as special needs. Don't get me wrong; most special needs children are sweet and deserving of whatever special treatment they get. However, thugs have learned to work the system - and to get special needs designation when they don't really meet the criteria. Schools don't have time or money to effectively challenge parents' demands that their children be put into the special needs programs, they're fearful of lawsuits by the thugs' parents, and special needs administrators are empire-building. It is in these administrators' own best interest to admit as many students into the special needs program as possible. In many districts the special needs administrators have grown their numbers to the point that they no longer have to answer to the superintendent or school board. It's a problem that only legislation can fix, and parents of non-special needs children have not effectively campaigned for that legislation.
