OK, long time (14 years) substitute teacher here.

One of the cute tricks middle school kids try to pull is the "I've got to sharpen my pencil." scam, especially if the classroom has an electric pencil sharpener.

There is always one or two little farktards who will pull this shiat, just to avoid working and to disrupt the class.  Many times, it is with a perfectly sharpened pencil that I've given them when they whine about not having a pencil with which to do the day's assignment.  They will purposely break off the tip, repeatedly if you let them and then proceed to disrupt the whole class by going up to the electric pencil sharpener and grinding that sucker down to a nub and then whining for another one.

I've learned to just boot their sorry asses out, down to the office at the first sign of this.  Yeah, "Mean Mr. S."  Tough shiat.  Shape up or GTFO.

It was my understanding (and I have a lot of teachers in the family) that for serious discipline problems the principal is to be called because that is his/her job. I know that the teachers want to deal with most issues themselves so that they maintain some level of respect and reward but when it comes to *punishing* students- I feel like the line is pretty clear that that is the principal's job.

Are there any teachers on fark??

(And frankly, if you really think that punishments that wouldn't be okay for adults would be appropriate for children you are wrong. When you break it down people think they can punish children in cruel ways because children basically can't fight back. It isn't the way you should treat other people and it isn't the right way to deal with conflict.)

"The mother, Maria Vasquez, was outraged and says her daughter suffers from attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. The family reported the incident to Tucson police, which also is looking into it.

"She likes to be happy and they tied her to a chair, regardless of it it was a little tape, she got tied to a chair where she couldn't move and that's not right, that's not right," said Vasquez."

Her daughter doesn't suffer from sh*t; everyone AROUND her daughter suffers from restless snowflake syndrome...

I think we can all agree that kids shouldn't be so unruly by the time they get to the teacher. But maybe the schools need to do a better job of teaching teachers how to handle such children.

I fail to see the problem with this, the kid isn't harmed, and public humiliation is a hell of a behavioral adjuster for some kids. I remember kids being duct taped to chairs for this exact same thing back in my day, early 80's. I even remember a kid having his mouth taped shut and forced to sit on a tall stool in the corner and made to wear a goofy paper hat that read "Motormouth" on it. I don't remember any parent raising a ruckus about it.

cardex: The mother, Maria Vasquez, was outraged and says her daughter suffers from attention deficit hyperactivity disorder

I thought that parents that did not want to do their jobs blamed it on autism now when did add go back to being an excuse for not teaching your kids any discipline?

Blame the criminals who work at Children Services. Until those criminals are forcibly removed, you have no right to raise your kid properly AKA discipline..
