This 'Independent' School District needs major supervision. You can tell the faculty has no 'real life' experience and obviously no children of their own. Just a scad above moronic.

Graffiti on a school (and many other places) is a Federal crime in Texas.
The schools don't make Federal laws. Duh

The faculty doesn't make the rules. again...duh
Obviously you have never spent any time in a school as an adult. Would you like these sweet
children to visit and paint graffiti on your house? How about gang signs on your front door and car?

thank you In Texas. I teach at that middle school. I agree that while it seems harsh to have such strict punishment, you must also take into account the child's record. when a student is CONSTANTLY in trouble, its hard for the adminishtrators (THEY make the rules-not me) to baby her and give her an hour of detention that she will never go to anyway. rules are rules and you have to be fair and consistent. but i what do i know, i have no "real life" experience.
