I understand there is a bullying problem that is going on right now but I am also hearing lots of stories about teachers getting bullied as well. Has anyone else?

While most parents are doing a great job and trying to teach their children respect and values, many have left the job to the media. Cell phones, sagging, and sassing have all replaced the work ethic and listening skills needed to achieve academically. Oh well, let's blame the teacher if the kids score poorly on tests. Parents, stop enabling your kids to mistreat other adults. You are next!

So, is it as common as I'm hearing about? What a shame. You could NOT pay me enough to go into it. I told my daughter if she thought about going into it that she would have to pay her own way for the next two more years that she has in college. She is now attending The Lexington Bartending School after subing off and on for two years and she seems to really like it. This may not work out in the long term but she feels at least safer and will have a bouncer to help and she is no longer crying when she comes home so, who knows? I know when they call her for subing she is not going!

What a shame--and she probably is a very caring, capable person who wants to make a difference. I know of a few good teachers who are now driving trucks, laying bricks and working retail because they are tired of the unchecked abuse.

Anything would be better than the abuse I know of a few that went to the federal prisons, to work to lower their blood pressure. Isn't that crock?

Maybe if parents turned of the tv and listened to their kids for once...
Most kids need a whiping anyways.

Unfortunately, the taxpayers end up paying for those "unplanned pregnancies" just as the taxpayers end up paying teachers to babysit and pacify the teens who are slaves to their cell phones and high-sugar food. We wonder why national test scores are shameful; students think they can "learn" in between texts and video games, but they are only wasting opportunities and destroying their potential--not to mention the morale of a stuggling nation. Mommy and Daddy--how dare you think we can take care of your problems for you!

Are you suggesting assaulting a child? What does birth control have to with bullying?

We are always being compared to China and such and how well they do things over there compared to us. Maybe its because they know they only have one chance to get into a school or any school and be successful for their entire family and they don't need the "fun factor" to make it happen. What is wrong with things being a little boring?Isn't life? Does it always take a Mardi Gras,Circus Soleil and Caos to learn? When I was bored I could always think better,use my creative skills and better use my imagination. What is going to happen when these same "entertainment babies" grow up and try to give you the right dosage of morphine or try to put on your breaks on your car? Need music, a dance, someone to beg them and to stroke their hands the right way first? Where are we headed really with this madness??? It's no longer Education but rather Edu-tainment so bring out the party hats, pink elephants and don't forget to say you had lots of FUN!

No, I'm suggesting punish a child appropriately for what they have done wrong. Worked for every kid up until recently, when it's become taboo.

The kids having kids don't know how to raise them, since they are still kids.
Teach sex Ed and all our problems will fix themselves.

If anyone is interested in a great resource, Osiris Educational has an infograph (It is basically an informative poster) that has loads of good statistics and i think they have good some good blogs on it aswell.
If you go to their website and then blog then you will find it.
Hope its as useful to you!

The problem is not the teachers. The problem is not the parents. The problem is the inability of the parents and teachers to see that the real problem is the administration.

Yes, without the support of the administration the teachers are helpless and they can't fight that battle alone. I think the admin. want the teachers to deal with everything in the classroom and then when a teacher ask for help it is looked at as faulty planning or inadequate teaching because the students are not held accountable but rather the teachers. What a crock! If we do not get back to the basics of teaching, discipline and teacher support we are in for a very dangerous time not only in school but on our streets and in society as a whole I am afraid. Why are teachers being blamed for just plain bad misbehavior? Get students out of the school if they are misbehaving so you can have class. We have to take back the profession of teaching if not we are heading for trouble.

Fine, send the students through the metal detects and hire a mediator and ask why Johnny can sleep all day and Johnny can't get his A. Great idea!

The truth of the matter is the teachers and administration are afraid of the students that bully and also their parents. Let's not make Little Johnny, Little Joan, or their parents mad cause they may sue us.
I work in a public school and I see it everyday. It's no wonder a lot of parents are turning to home school. Can't say as I blame them.

Totally agree and a complaint from a parent is now a days like the third coming. Schools are changing fast and it isn't good!

Might I suggest....OccupyFCPS? Take it back? Tell them for once who is really in charge?

Oh, who am I kidding, no body will do anything except keep complaining about it. The administration knows this and plays it against everyone. As long as there is Monday night football and DWTS the people are content.**SIGH**
