get a tough one because the a few teachers need to be repremanded. a certain teacher allowed a student to say the F-word in class repeatedly and the teacher didnt have enough sense to pull that kid out of class..and even played at the game that night. What is going on in there...isnt there any common sense anymore. What role is the principal doing...what does he stand for? Kids need disapline...please remenber the old days teachers.....quit being the kids friends and be professional!!!!!!!!!! and stay after school once and a while to help kids...not beat them out of school.

The kid running up and down the hall earlier this year screaming he needed to masturbate and all Briggs did was shake his head. Briggs stood there watching the whole thing happening during the Jr. High lunch. But wait we need to worry about giving these people raises?!?! We should have voted that merger through..,,What a joke!

And if he had hauled the kid's ass into his office and handed out a punishment you know the parents of that kid would have been out for his blood. People should try raising their kids properly instead of contradicting themselves by saying the school should deal with it "butohnotmykidthey'reanan gelwhatdoyoumeantheymisbehave? !"

Agree. Think what you want about teachers but kids are a hell of a lot more difficult to manage these days, what with absentee parenting & all. I've seen parents actually yell at teachers who did not allow their kid free time because they slapped another student. True story. This crap happens. In my day if I hit another kid, forget my punishment at school. It would've been worse at home. AND the punishment wouldn't have been entirely for hitting another kid, but also for disrespecting a teacher by acting up in class. This parental discipline is disappearing and on some days it lands right in the laps of our teachers, who have to then shift from education to behavior management. Just a general observation before everyone jumps all over me. I realize it's not like this in all cases, and that not all teachers deserve sympathy.

And you don't believe they should earn it? So the children should all receive A's because they deserve it? Money WON'T make them better teachers no more than money makes an employee better at their job anywhere else.

Try teaching a horse to play fetch. That's what it's like trying to teach your kid.
Look at the kid and then look at the family, it's not rocket science to figure out why the kid is a moron.

It seems Tutty attended the budget and board meetings last week and said I've seen enough. Did you see the list of clowns in that gathering? Tutty must have talked to himself all the way home.

Are you on the Board of Ed? You must be because you see to have all the inside answers. So which genius are you? You are the reason he is running!

That is his job. If a principal can't stand up to parents when their kid has done something wrong, they should not be a principal.
