The situation cited here is more common than one might think. The level of hostility in the local schools is on the rise. Unfortunately, too many students' behavior is overlooked or swept under the carpet until a serious incident occurs. This is not just senior high school students. There is no respect for authority among the students and they stay on a hair-trigger, taunting faculty and staff. It's no wonder teachers quit the profession at an ever-increasing rate. Are these students the future of our country? Too Bad for us all.
