We need corporal punishment and prayer back in schools. This fight may be a sign of the times however these times are like this because the main two elements were taken out of the class room.

Marion Schools do utilize corporal punishment. At the beginning of the year, parents have the right to say yes or no to this. As for religion...i suppose it's best not to comment. I don not share the same beliefs as most on that subject.

I am so tired of Black kids acting a damn fool every where the go...at school, the movies, skating rinks, in the mall, and even at church. I am Black and will not allow my children to associate with certain Black children. They act like a bunch of ignorant fool ass animals. They have been given the BEST of opportunities this country has to offer and look how they throw it away. Yet, most of them want to steal or sell drugs for a living. Try getting an education and birth control.

The problem we are having in schools today are a reflection of today's society. Weather we want to admit it or not, society is without morals and without self responsibility. With religion and corporal punishment or not until we realize and teach our children to be responsible for their actions and to respect others, we will continue down this same road to destruction. It is not a Black thing or a white thing, or any other thing. My wife teaches in the schools and all children reflect the teachings or lack of teaching by their parents and what is force fed by society. Don't point the finger at someone else until you your self clear out your prejudice, then we may start to gain a foothold on the problem. Of course a little religion in the schools couldn't hurt.

The sky is blue also. How enlightening was that statement? How can we tie that in to this story to get a better understanding?

Sounds to me like you are the kettle calling the black. Some of us are teaching our children morals, and self responsibility. Not all people are lazy parents.
