Nadie_AZ: Some have 'in school suspension' now. You go to school, you sit in a room and do nothing.


But sometimes, you find out you have a lot more in common with each other than you thought!

ReapTheChaos: bhcompy: 2) The real point of suspension isn't the day-of punishment, it's the mark on your record that goes with you forever

Really? Forever? Don't you mean until the end of that school year? If you were a truly unruly student that stuff might follow you until you graduate but that's about it.


I was accepted by Harvard, but then on the first day of classes I got called to the admissions office.  Turns out my high school had sent over my "official" transcripts, including the time I was suspended for calling Mandy Jones a 'classless twat' on a class trip.  They informed me they were sorry, but they couldn't allow me to attend classes at Harvard and I'd have to go to another school.

/Long story short, I flunked out of community college and now suck dick behind the 76 station for money.  All because of my "permanent record" as a child.

now?
My high school had that 20 years ago.
I resolved never go get sent back there after the first time, because I didn't think I could take that much boredom again.

StoPPeRmobile: SubBass49: StoPPeRmobile: SubBass49: StoPPeRmobile: SubBass49: I've been teaching for 11 years in an urban low-income school, and the amount of shiat it takes to actually EARN a suspension is ridiculous. The suspension isn't so much about teaching the asshat kid a lesson, as it is about allowing the rest of the class a few days without their negative influence in the classroom. Case in point, one of my loudest & most annoying students was suspended today, and a class period that is usually loud & off task was magically transformed into a hard-working and calm room. This info has been stored away, and I will not hesitate to request 2-day suspensions of said student in the future (max we can request & automatically be granted).

The other students are afraid, dear leader. Should make for good citizens.

Good job.

Your only a teacher, no wonder.

You're a resident of the only state moronic enough to have it's own Fark tag, so you've got that going for you, which is nice.

Here's wagering I outscored you on the GRE analytical writing section.  Most likely right now you're thinking to yourself, "what's the GRE?"  If by some miracle you actually know what it is, and have miraculously taken the exam, then post your score.  Mine was a 6 out of 6.

Still can't figure out a way to get down here, eh professor?




Why is it always the people who complain about teachers, who are the ones completely unwilling to do the jobs themselves?

Put up, or shut up.

Does anyone else feel like cluing stoppermobile in on how he must have misread that?  The kids weren't afraid of their teacher, they were relieved that the asshat kid had been suspended? And now he has entered into some kind of bizarre pissing contest where he sounds less rational each time he posts? Nevermind, it's late AND it's fark...

SubBass49: Before you Fark Education ExpertsTM all whine that I must be making the material too difficult, this is Art 1.


You must make art not fun.  I hated art in school because the teachers took it so damn seriously when I was trying to do the assignments but feel my way around technique as well.  I could never exactly reproduce what the teacher was instructing even when I tried.  Hate art.  Hate art teachers.  Picky.  Arrogant as all hell.  Derisive.  Patronizing.

It's a life long thing with me though.  Started in 1st or 2nd grade when I wanted to paint my dog blue and the teacher got on my case because dogs aren't really blue.  Well, screw you lady, I grew up and adopted a blue dog from the pound and I still hate you.

Well, that was cathartic.

digitalrain: My oldest is a real piece of work when it comes to school. The kid is a genius but has absolutely
zero ambition. He goes to school because I drag his ass out of bed @ 5:30 every morning. He
gets on the bus, goes to class and does nothing. Sometimes he sleeps, sometimes he goofs off.

They used to suspend him out of school for it until I put my foot down. I told the school admins
that he *wanted* to be sent home and that suspending him out of school did nothing but give him
what he wanted. So they started sending him to in-school suspension. He stopped falling asleep
in class after that.


Sorry sweetheart but little Johnny is FAR from a genius given your description of him. But you and hubby keep telling yourself that and allowing him to go all the way through school sleeping. He'll make quite an adult.

Oh and after I dropped out the real learning began!!!

I hosted goldeneye tournaments, smoked weed all day, tried to find people to buy me cigs...

Even then, I worked a lot of under the table construction jobs at 14 and on. As soon as I turned 16 I was working 2 jobs and partying my head off!!

You actually believed that shiat?  Should I be concerned about losing the job that I've had for 15 years if my Supervisor wants to contact my high school on the other side of the country and find out all the things I did in high school, 25 years ago?

Perhaps, a new punishment system should be devised.

Sex = 15 hours "volunteering" to take care of at least 10, 2 year olds.

Fighting = 10 hours in the blocks

Drugs = have to assist in the anti-drug thingys all year

Bullying = 15 hours of wearing a frilly pink dress for guys; 15 hours wearing painfully hideous clothes for girls.

Interrupting class = hog tied with duct tape and left for the duration of class.

/ to be continued
