The Brevard county sheriff paired up with the Brevard Public Schools Chairman to announce a new discipline policy for the county’s schools.

“Not only safe from active shooters, intruders, and other potential threats to our campuses, but also from the clowns who continually disrupt our classrooms and our assemblies with bad behavior, violent acts, and even cellphones, that disrupt class room environments and distract our incredible teachers.”

Look, I am in agreement that there are some kids in school that are out of control. I just don’t like that there are no details of this new policy, and I definitely don’t think that the police are the proper tool for addressing those children. If he is talking about children who are committing big boy crimes, that is one thing, but referring to using police to control a kid who is only disrupting class is another. Read this quote and see what I mean:

“If you are a teacher that is passionate about teaching children and are sick and tired of trying to do it in an environment where you are physically and verbally threatened or subjected to constant childish outbursts, then starting today, your prayers have been answered, because all of us have had enough of this crap as well.

(emphasis added by DM)

In school, childish outbursts are expected. They are CHILDREN, after all. The teachers need to worry about those things, not police. I’m with the Sheriff on things like violence, stealing, and actual crimes. Not on kids simply being kids.

Keep in mind that this is the same school board last year that voted to restrict parents to one minute of speaking time when addressing the school board, and had parents arrested for going over the time limit. The claim was that too many people were speaking for too long, and this was causing school board meetings to last too long.

So excuse me if I don’t trust the school board to say one thing, but use the resulting rules to be petty tyrants.

using the police to enforce house rules makes everyone look bad… if the parents of those kids can’t control them, kick them out of school… if you don’t want to behave and get your diploma, sign an agreement that you are never eligible for any form of gov assistance and go work at McDonalds the rest of your life

Sending a child to government school today is child abuse.

Well, he did his strutting, but after reading the article twice I still don’t know what the new day means. I read a lot of he hates “bad” kids, but nothing about what LAW ENFORCEMENT (not the school district) is going to do about the problems, but it was his moment, so I have to assume LEOs will be doing discipline enforcement inside the schools now.

I assume the article’s quotes are from a script press release and note “… losing teachers in mass…” Must be a really big church.

    I read that and thought the teachers were getting smaller.

Apparently, some people didn’t catch on that Dolores Umbridge wasn’t the hero of Harry potter and The Order Of The Phoenix.

Probably the same people who root for O’Brien in 1984.

That said, there’s more than a couple of corn-fed Dindus from middle school onwards who need a PR-24 shampoo attitude adjustment, on the reg (Daily, or more frequently), because they were fed instead of raised by their welfare queen baby mama.

So I’m going with this will depend on the situation.

    And given that most big city public schools are mainly just training kids for prison, it kind of makes sense to let their future custodians deal with the inmates, doesn’t it?

I don’t think that not wanting teachers to be punched means there is no other choice but turning the classroom into a prison cell block with police guards, nor is that the best use for limited police resources
