  • I am not surprised

    Any Southside, or west side teacher in a general high school is not be surprised
    with the carnage going on in the streets. In fact we are amazed it is not worse.
    This last year has been horrible. Girls getting their hair ripped off on the bus by
    Other girls. Lockdowns a common occurrence, assaults on teachers, including me,
    phoned in bomb threats, murders, fights almost every day, sometimes every period.
    The schools are out of control why do the city leaders think the streets will be different.
    Only about 1% of the kids are completely out of control. But that segment of the
    school population does not care about anything. We always have a quiet time when these morons
    are suspended, or hopefully expelled. But the day they come back it starts right where it left
    off .Everyone may be entitled to a free education but since when have laws stopped
    at the school house door. I lay the blame directly those who make policy, and think
    every school should be able to expel anybody who shows that they only to gang bang
    and raise hell.

  • Hallelujah! That program is a steaming pile of moose flop. Please let the rumor be true...Please let the rumor be true...Please let the rumor be true...
