I will support any teacher willing to work with me. But I will not support any teacher or school advocating for exclusion of concerned parents!
I can not believe that you have said do not involve the parents, and the parents are the problem! I have an autistic child, and Yes he has an IEP, and everything is well documented, And because of people like you I had him homeschooled for all of nineth grade. The COURT ordered him back INSIDE the school and now this year their answer is suspend him for EVERYTHING he does! A parent CAN demand respect of their children, and CAN control them when they are ABLE TO CONTROL THEMSELVES! I am the last person on earth to say "Oh my son would never do that!" I know very well what my son is capable of but you DO NOT get anywhere blaming and excluding the parents! Your post alone is part of the problem! I have tried to get my sons teachers to talk to me. Provided email and phone numbers, and not a single one has bothered to contact me regarding anything! Yet you wonder why parents are not MORE SUPPORTIVE of the schools! Yes I understand EVERY child has the right to education, INCLUDING children like mine! Wow, you're post was entirely insensitive and callous and you should NOT be int he position you are in.
i am a high school student most teacher suspend students for there own reasons because students act smart thus insuborgination but students only talk back cause they know something that a teacher doesnt know
I hear a lot of frustration and anger over the schools system/parental failure and I haven't seen one concrete suggestion for a solution? Has anyone ever heard of CPS?
It has more than merit, it has promise.
It has and can replace outdated sytems in schools as well as correctional facilities with success.
I requires training and it requires an understanding that we can't expect immediate results with any model.
In this method it is proposed that if children could do well children would do well. No child wants to fail. Unfourtunatly the ones who need the assistance the most ask for it in sometimes the most unloving ways.
I am a mom of three children, two of who have some educational challenges and learning differences. I have tried this method and it isn't a swift fix. It is a proportionate expectation to children's developmental age. Personally, I have also learned what works is changing my behavior so that the kids change theirs.
It is a recipricol respectfully manner of teaching problem solving skills. We are in a better position to teach our children to solve their own problems and need to adopt the thought of cooperation vs control.
I feel that your statement is appropriate for students who are typically well-behaved. Students who often exhibit problem behavior and are always provided OSS or ISS are not going to benefit from this. Instead, we are keeping them further from achieving academically so they are in an even worse position that they were initially!
Suspensions can be effective, but only for a small group of people and if the parents have a clear idea of how to handle it. Parents must support school discipline efforts and expect students to behave in school and to be there for the purpose of learning what is taught.The goal is to get students to learn to behave in public situations. parents must be part of the plan. This is difficult with so many parents believing that schools should teach what they have neglected. By then it is usually too late.
Many parents who have kids who are suspended also have kids who are the shining stars of their class. So, do you think the parents taught two different ways, or do you think there are two different kids? If it is mandatory that the kids are in school, then there must be help from the school in handling strong personalities. Not always the case, but neither is it that a suspended kid is the fault of the parents in every case.
How dare you diss that parent with a child with ADHD. Didn't you go to school and pay for a degree that you chose that says you have the ability to deal with this kind of situation and child? That parent has no formal guidance whatsoever. Or have you been out of school for so long and are so out of touch you forgot you have that degree?
How dare you diss that parent, aren't you the one who paid for a degree to figure out how to handle this kind of situation and child? The parent has to handle it without any guidance whatsoever. What are you whining about Mr. Mark or have you been out of school and out of touch for so long you don't remember you have that degree?
I think that suspensions are unnessicary, sorry for spelling =
but a saturday school detention is far much worse then 3 days of suspension, the only reasons for suspension should be actual violence
What doesn't make sense is that you are not more concerned about the fact that your son was caught drinking. He's a senior for crying out loud. If he was so concerned about college, shouldn't he have thought about that before drinking? It's time for him to put his big boy pants on and think about how his actions might affect his future, or are you going to do that for him too?
