Willingboro teachers are concerned for their safety as school administration still refuses to take action against out of control, violent students. The public needs to be made aware of what is going on within these schools. I think the teachers should go on strike. My neighbor is a teacher at Willingboro Middle School. I hear the horror stories that go on there. Its amazing how out of hand things are getting, yet Administrators refuse to do a god damn thing about it. Its only a matter of time before some kid goes Colombine on the place! God help these teachers! Burlco Times, make this public, PLEASE!

The problem is, these little bastards still think they are in Trenton. You can take the person out of Trenton, but you cant take the Ghetto out of them at the same time. Once an animal, always an animal. That whole town is out of control. Im not trying to sound racist, but "these", not all, African Americans wonder why they are stereotyped. Here is a town that overcame bigotry years back and became a town of pround African American families, moving out of the city and into nice suburban life. Now, its out of control and its another Camden/Trenton. Blame the youth, blame generation Y. Im Columbian. I know how it feels to be victimized and categorized because of race. I overcame this, I kill them with kindness. Ive lived in Voorhees for years now. I moved out of Cramer Hill, into Voorhees; I was constantly stereotyped as was my fam. Now we all get along; you know why, we left the ghetto behind.

If you are depending on the BCT to help you are in for a LONG wait. The teachers need to carry cell phones with the police on speed dial, any threat/weapon needs to be reported, once the parents of the little savages get upset because "my sweet little son/daughter would never do that" then the paper will look into it and the teachers will have a chance to be heard.

The tipping point? How are these schools years later? Black administration, mostly black teachers black students. How can you blame whitey for this?

The Left controls the Dept of Education,this type of disrespect and violence is music to their ears.We the people need to get back control of "S C H O O L S" and bring them back to state control,and oblish the Dept of Education from these COMMUNIST who run our schools.....Until that happens,the situation will never change for the best EVER!,and this an isolated situation,this is played all over America...And the quality of our education will constantly be graduating future Leftist, who will vote DEMONCRAT or DAMNEDOCRAT...Just look who got his butt re-elected to fool us,and to destroy us!,OBAMA the greatest phony.......

I recall an incident a few years ago with a teacher and students. Seemed the kids literally pushed a female teacher into a corner trapping her. She went to the administration to see what could be done. They wanted to know what she did to provoke the altercation!

Ooh yeah I heard about the threat... from what I've heard from a couple of people there that some "troubled" kids from the Bronx and other a such places transferred in last year and have had quite the attitude. Unfortunately, despite there being hundreds of wonderfully pleasant students, the schools reputations are based on the actions of about 30 - 50 brats. still... Even when I was a student there, I always hated being so defined by the crap that the same 10 -15 people would be pulling. And when I sub there, they still seem like the same type of brats with bad attitudes I grew up with. It's those fresh-out-of-the-ghetto kids mainly, we're causing all if this fuss... Mainly

The school violence in Willingboro is not new. When the town was white and called Levittown, the same type incidents happened. Teachers were assaulted and even after school some of them were paid visits to their home for more of the same. I recall troublemaker kids being lumped together into one class. I also recall more than one 18 year old eighth grade student.

Nice... there weren't any of those during the time I was there... there were plenty of eighth graders who looked 18... but they were all about 13-14 like the rest of us... I did know 2 who were 15 going into 8th grade though... does that count?

I was in the class of troublemakers. Windsor Junior High (Dukes was Principle, Barbieri Vice) This was '63 - '64. I wasn't one of the eighteen year olds but they were in the class. On more than one occasion teachers were punched in the face, thrown against the blackboard or choked. Maybe you were the kid I pulled a blade on and threatened to cut his throat . . . .

Wow... most of the kids I went to WHS with were WAY to wimpy to try pulling weapons on school property... they might do it a few blocks away after school... but they still have to push each other around and waste time the entire time so they almost always got cut short by the police or someone else... MUCH more bark than bite... most of them... though there were some exceptions... but They weren't complete fools. They'd get into their fights further away from the school, and much later in the day, and they weren't all showy about it.

That's not to say there weren't fights during the day... you could definitely expect one at least twice a month during any given lunch period... and the ones that would take place right after school on the basketball court in Country Club were expected to happen about once a week... Though many of those fights were broken up before any actual punches were thrown... they were always too busy pushing each other and bad-mouthing each other...
How boring... Also they were usually fist fights... Either they just didn't think to use weapons, or they had some kind of dimwitted/prideful reasoning... whatever.

I guess the fighters in our school must have gotten a bit wimpier or something in the past 40 years.

But I lost all of my connections in the student network as of 2011... all I hear, I hear from staff and old connections with younger siblings going there now... so I don't hear NEARLY as much as I used to about the latest fights and drama as when I was there... More than anything I hear about board decisions that make little to no sense... Ugh... what good is local gossip if I can't hear any of it and trifle through it for information useful to me.

I come from the Levittown era. The newest park they built then was Hawthorne. The only junior high school was Windsor which was one of the elementary schools used as a substitute. My point is and still is even back that far in the town's history the same type incidents happened. It is not a recent phenomenom. But in today's world everyone wants to make things look earth shattering and traumatic. It isn't any different now than then . . .

I know. People are so overly dramatic. Still, it's really interesting to see and compare with someone who was here "way back when". Were the food fights as ridiculously silly then as it is these days... Like my junior year, on the last full day of school, everyone gathered trays full of mashed potatoes on the edges of the lunch tables, and slammed textbooks on them to catapult the food everywhere... Lol most of it just flew straight up in the air and the kids at the table had to scatter... Good times... XD

If you ever get a chance watch the movie "The In Crowd" (1988). That was my generation growing up. I hung with the "In Crowd" but we fashioned ourselves as "The Tough Guys" We did not bully anyone in school although we were known to beat a bully up for picking on a weaker kid. And if a weaker kid asked us to we'd smack them around for being weak. You didn't dare have a food fight around us, you might get stomped unconscious for getting food on our tables. And yes we would extort money from people in the lunch line. We went to dances like Millbrook or Beverly Road or over to Philly for Jerry Blavatt. We smoked and drank and raced cars. There were two sets of dress conservative and jive. While you were squarely in the Middle of peace love and Woodstock I was on the cusp of moving out of the old into the new. We had wars between towns and used bottles, sticks, rocks and belt buckles. We rebelled against authority. Our fights were not gang fights, they were called mobfights. I bet I was already home from Vietnam while you were still in school. See that's why it was hard for you to believe you were not around then. I could go on for ever but it's just the way back machine ...

See that movie it paints a good portrait of explaining my growing up in the Delaware Valley.
