When is enough is enough.start discipline these kids instead of sending them to iss.most teachers have no control over the kids. if they act up they go to iss. stop pushing the problem on to someone else.school board needs to start discipline teachers that are not doing anything about the kids breaking the rules everyday in their classroom.bottom line if your going to have rules enforce them instead of letting these kids do what they want.they have gotten away with it so long that they are out of control now.how many times do these kids need to be in iss before something is done.

What else can they do? It's not like being sent to the principal for swats is accepted anymore, really. Every time it happens someone yells child abuse. What would be another way to discipline the students? I'm not being rude I'm just honestly curious

Personally I think the school should start involving the parents more often. For kids who are repeat offenders, if the parents start having some kind of consequence when the child acts up, they might start thinking twice about how their child acts and do something.
My kids aren't perfect, but I would be mortified to find out they act at school the way some kids do. There would definately be a punishment when they got home.

Most kids act like their parents. Parents don't care if they don't see anything wrong with the way they act. Some parents also think that their child never does anything wrong. Parent involvement would be great as long as all those parents were good caring parents. Our community isn't that lucky - just look at all the kids that walk around town and are at the park all by themselves.

Seriously? You punish a parent when a child misbehaves?
I know plenty of good people who have had out of control children.. Preachers kids.. People that try really hard to instill good morals and values.. Sometimes kids are just going to do what they're goin to do, and all the discipline in the world isn't going to stop them.
So, if your "good kid" started acting up, you take the appropriate measures to discipline again and again, nothing you do seems to work, then you should be held responsible and punished? Really?
Imo, that's impractical and for the most part, dumb.

There are a few kids that act up even though they were raised right, but the majority of kids that act up enough at school to disrupt class and be put in ISS all the time are raised by parents that usually let them run wild and do whatever they want and those same parents don't usually care what they are doing as long as they don't have to mess with them. But if it started affecting the parents, they might actually discipline their kids.
Kind of along the same lines as when they passed the law, if you don't make your kids go to school you get in trouble.
Something is going to have to be done and these little slap on the wrist kids get now days just isn't doing the trick. When teachers are scared of some of their students, it's getting ridiculous.

I don't disagree xoxo.. But once you make a rule to punish parents, then it would have to apply to all parents. Even the ones who do honest to God try to raise them right. No preferential treatment, or some one would start hollering discrimination.. Its just not feasible. I know Im not giving any solutions, because I honestly don't have one. When my kid acts up, I take care of it immediately, but he still has his days... Detention, swats,(from me and school) having every privilege taken away, even counseling, sometimes doesn't deter him from acting up. So.... After all that, after every options been exhausted, you're gonna punish me? I don't think so.

I received swats when I was in grade school and I personally told the principals, Nobody is swatting my child, but me! It is a school! For education, not discipline!

And I told the school that there is no need to call me first. If they need swats, give them swats, let me know and it will be reinforced when they get home. I don't plan on seeing any of my kids in jail, just because they don't know right from wrong, or because they don't understand that there are consciences for their actions.

And that is why kids now days aren't afraid of getting in trouble at school. They know nothing will get done and ISS is no punishment, it's fun time!!!

Uh, I nor my kids are trash. They dress very well and are very good kids. Read the post stupid! It says my kids have NEVER been to ISS. So I must be doing something right. I do discipline my kids, just not through the school. That's my choice. Nobody spanks my kids but me or their father! Period!
