show me: Silly subby, a "chalkboard" is what they called a "blackboard" in the 1950s. Now they call it an "African American board."
calbert: shiat, it's not even dry-erase white boards anymore. most schools are using SMART boards now.
Mimic_Octopus: What the fark is this ? why is there someone paid to surf the web,
Yogimus: The school resource officer continually monitors students' Facebook pages and saw the picture then reported it to school administrators.FAP FAP FAP
crabsno termites: FTA: "The school resource officer continually monitors students' Facebook pages . . ."Not on my farking watch.
Mimic_Octopus: ftfa : The school resource officer continually monitors students' Facebook pagesWhat the fark is this ? why is there someone paid to surf the web, what has this to do with education ? buy more books and hire more teachers and fire this farker. and mind your own damn business, facebook is not school property.

I see the educational system failed you as well, although I tend to doubt it's because they didn't have enough books. Education and parenting are not dichotomous jobs.
The Downfall: My kids' school has a "smart board." I don't actually know what that is. I assumed it was a cross between an overhead and a dry erase board. Now I must look it up.
Yogimus: 3. What the fark are kids doing with cameraphones in school? Take the toys away, give them back at the end of the school year.
tortilla burger: and even before that, they called it a nubianboard
Mikey1969: just get tired of the bullshiat teacher's unions
Mikey1969: Yogimus: 3. What the fark are kids doing with cameraphones in school? Take the toys away, give them back at the end of the school year.Why? First off, pretty much every phone has a camera in it now. This happened about 2004, seriously, you wouldn't believe the issues my father in law had finding phones WITHOUT cameras, since he worked for Boeing.Second, both my stepsons have phones, and they've had them since they were about 12, and started walking places by themselves and riding the schoolbus. It's even more important now, IMHO, since my older stepson now drives, and I don't want him breaking down and having to wander the streets looking for the last surviving payphone.Welcome to the second decade of the 21st century, alot of people have cell phones with cameras on them.
Mikey1969: If this had been a student online, he'd be suspended at least, most likely expelled, he would have been arrested and taken down to the police station for questioning, news anchors from all over the country would be lamenting the sad state of affairs amongst our youth, and some jackass would be blaming video games and movies. They'd also go to the ends of the earth to find SOME connection between the student and a gun. Any gun. The kid would have something on his record that would follow him for life.
calbert: since Sandy Hook, the local schools have hired additional 'resource officers'. their job is to sit at a desk in the front hallway of the building and monitor the front doors.they do not get up to let people into the building, the people in the office are in charge of that. they are paid to remain at that post for their shift. they always have their smartphones out. when some parents complained about this, the principals and district informed the parents that the additional security is to remain at the front doors all day, they are not to leave to guide a parent through the building, or to help carry in something heavy for the librarian, they are to remain visible at the front door.since you never know when someone is going to enter the front of the school, the security person cannot leave their area (except for lunch, and then someone from the front office has to fill in).I can see this person utilizing their time to scroll through Facebook for the 'good of the school'.this is exactly what the parents wanted and asked for after Sandy Hook./I regularly attend the public forums for the school district//there is less derp in the Politics tab than there is at a school district public forum
ReapTheChaos: Personally I think these kind of knee jerk reactions are part of the problem these days.
StoPPeRmobile: How many decades are they going to do this?
calbert: StoPPeRmobile: How many decades are they going to do this?at the last forum, it was stated that there will be a security officer (unarmed) present at the front door of all middle schools and high schools (not at the elementary schools) until the remainder of the school year, and then the district will reevaluate their policies.at a forum right after Sandy Hook, a parent asked the district what they were doing to secure the local regional airport. she wanted to know what steps the district was taking to ensure that someone couldn't get into a Cessna and fly it in to a school building.another parent brought up the valid issue of what happens if the school is in lockdown and the 'shooter' pulls a fire-alarm? the response was that the kids are to remain in the locked classroom. the follow-up question was what if it is a real fire? the response was that firefighters and police will extract the kids through the windows if they have to get them out. the follow-up question was, "how do I know that the person smashing the windows and grabbing kids is a real firefighter/police officer"?another parent was concerned that her child's P.E. class was outside during a lockdown drill and their safe point was at the Community Center across the street. She wanted to know why her child's class wasn't allowed back into the building to get to a secure classroom.
ReapTheChaos: and a 44 oz coke every week.
Spaced Cowboy: How those people held on to their sanity is beyond me.
Spaced Cowboy: On the topic of the article. All I can say is I understand. I have several friends and a few family that were career teachers. How those people held on to their sanity is beyond me. I'd strangle some of the little shiats about 3 days into that job and be in jail
ReapTheChaos: Hell that sounds more entertaining than most of whats on TV. I'd be there with a tub of popcorn and a 44 oz coke every week.
calbert: ReapTheChaos: Hell that sounds more entertaining than most of whats on TV. I'd be there with a tub of popcorn and a 44 oz coke every week.at the last forum a few weeks ago, the concept of 'random' security-wanding took 40 minutes of q&a. "there will be random wanding. we don't know when it will occur, or how often. it will vary. one day it may be every 9th kid entering the building. another day it may that bus and the next bus, but not the next 3, but then the first 20 kids off of the next bus...""how much radiation will my kid be exposed to"?"when will the random wanding occur"?"what if it's the first week of June and a kid is wearing a long trench coat hiding a gun and he counts ahead in line and positions himself so that he's not wanded. Will security just let him walk by because he isn't the 9th or 10th kid"?"will the white kids be wanded also"?"can we sign something as a promise of good intent or pay extra so that my kid is never wanded"?
