Is Gwinett County hiring the mouth-breathers that left the Clayton system when SACS yanked their credentials?

Maybe he was testing him for clairvoyance. "Coupla...wavy lines?"

I don't see anything wrong with her actions. The device wasn't dangerous, just annoying. Getting the student to test it on himself might help him develop a little empathy for his victims.

So people insist on the government babysitting their snowflake for them for 40 hours a week, but when the babysitter has to discipline that little brat of a snowflake, these people flip their shiat. We've all been in school before. We know the kind of kid that would bring a pen like that to school. That kid deserved what he got. Hopefully it would have taught him a lesson. So much for that now.

Junior brought the pen to school to zap other students.
Making him use it on himself was appropriate. It wasn't as if she pulled out a taser and shot the kid (althought that would have been funny as hell to watch).

Bring back the paddle.

Never, ever be a teacher or school administrator.

There are actually schools where the students have to wear shock collars. I'm not making this up. It's fun to call in and trick the school workers into shocking the students more than usual

This. She wasn't putting the kid in any danger, and the punishment was more appropriate to the infraction than detention or writing "I will not bring in electric-shock" pens 50x on the blackboard.

I used to get paddled in grade school for forgetting to bring my prayer-book to chapel. I have no sympathy for a kid who annoys and harasses people with a buzzer pen and gets a harmless dose of his own medicine. When did we become such pussies?

The little sh*t brought that crap to school and she was trying to teach the little bastard a lesson. Just another example of the pussification of today's youth and politically correct idiots that justify it.

Lol. i would have loved to go there, after 15 minuts in the washroom with a multi tool my shock collar wouldnt work, and the expression on the teachers face when they try to shock me and see me "resisting" would be priceless.

"'Her actions reflect poor judgement,' said Sloan Roach, a spokesperson for Gwinnett County Public Schools."

WTF?!? What she did was clearly the most logical, sensible thing she could have done. I mean, seriously, what kind of bonehead would you have to be to have a problem with it?

It was the kid's pen. The little shiat deserved it.
 
2009-03-31 10:55:17 AM  
I guess the principal was supposed to call the police and have the police taser the kid. That's the standard procedure.
 
2009-03-31 10:56:41 AM  
I approve. Good on the principal. The kid was a little brat.
 
2009-03-31 10:58:29 AM  
Did anyone read the whole "she punished a kid who bit a peer by holding them down and allowing them to be bitten" part of the article?

They settled out of court. I don't agree with her actions, but I really would like to imagine the original bitten kid suing for all the money the aggressor kid's family won in that suit. Apparently:

1. Act like huge dick
2. Get taste of own medicine
3. Civil suit
4. Profit

Apparently ??? was civil suit this whole time.

They were gunning for her. TFA notes other issues, so this was just what they needed to move her out of the system without blowback. Personally love the method. Would it have been more appropriate to call the kid's parents in, and then ask them if they would allow the child to use the toy to shock them?

However, they are correct--this was not in line with the school district discipline policies, which in this case could have been as little as simply confiscating the toy. Since it's not a "weapon", zero tolerance wouldn't necessarily apply, but she probably could have called the parents in, or possibly even given ISS.

Back in the onion-belt days, my dad would have run around shocking all us kids with it at home, BUT he would have murdered us for taking such a thing to school. The man had a fine appreciation for the right time and place for a joy buzzer, something today's parents are sadly lacking.

Imagine if the kid had brought a gun to school. I think that the principal was right in this situation, but not in the biting incident mentioned. The woman is an adult with a brain, she should use it - not every situation deserves the same response. The pen could not cause permanent damage like a bite could, therefore, it's a reasonable punishment. This whole zero tolerance movement is just another form of laziness.

Hero tag. If kids had to face consequences every day for their own decisions, then we wouldn't have sixteen year olds screwing and suing every week.
