Judging by some of the comments, the parents may be the problem

The superintendent's letter was very reasonable.  The students are probably little jackass monsters.

Jebus.  No wonder the kids are such shiats.  Their parents are clueless morons who decide to attack every issue about the superintendent while completely missing the entire point of his letter.  Godo jorb, parents.  Your kids will be well-prepared to be able to confidently repeat phrases like "would you like fries with that?" better than any generation before them.

Diogenes: Don't Tongue the Reaper!: A thoughtful, balanced response from an education administrator?  Are these the end times?

/I have my towel.

As opposed to the response by the Parents' Coalition.

Let me shorthand it for you:  "Shut up, you pussy."

Yeah, it's the parents in this case who have a collective stick up their ass.  Read the comments in TFA--a couple of them, and one in particular named "jzsartucci", seem to have an axe to grind w/the superintendent.  Their response isn't so much "shut up you pussy" as "OMG, why are you bothering with this when there's child abuse going on?  And why are you spending taxpayer money to be on Twitter??"  The superintendent is doing a good thing here--recognizes that these kids are acting like dumbasses online and addressing what could easily become a serious issue that they'll regret later.

You can see from the comments that these kids don't have a chance. Their parents are total assholes too

The superintendent is a pretty smart guy. Unlike many of the students.

Millennium: StrangeQ: What's unfortunate is that it would be nice to be able to give school administrators to power to discipline these little monsters appropriately, but what more often than not then happens is that they completely overstep their authority and end up charging first graders with sexual harassment.

This. It's almost like they need another authority figure in their lives, entrusted with living with and raising them, to determine and administer appropriate discipline.

The police?

Child protective services?

I give up, who should be responsible to discipline these kids?

And I think we know some of their Fark handles at this point. Going to be fun when we search some of these little darlings' Twitter histories before hiring them, isn't it?

Lucky LaRue: So the superintendent hasn't learned the #1 rule of being dog-piled by social media:  Keep your mouth shut, and just lay there, think of England and take it.


FTFA: I'd like to think that they wouldn't post such things if they understood the consequences of their actions or if they knew that I'm legally responsible for reporting threats to the police and to their parents.

RedPhoenix122: Sybarite: [ image 500x152]

It's just science.

Problem is, a lot of these people forget the anonymity part of the equation.

These are the same teens that would take pictures and video of their friends raping a passed out and under-aged girl. So, no, it doesn't surprise me at all that they don't understand the consequence of politely asking for a day off.

/I hope they shut down the buses and made the assmunches walk to school
