The Truth About Wrongful School Suspensions

There are some things that go great together for a child, like school, sports and being a kid. And there are some things that don't go together, like getting suspended from school or being expelled from school. Those two things can halt a child's education. We understand when a child has done some stupid things wrong. But what about the things that a child has not done something stupid? Well, I'm about to tell you... Wrongful suspensions are the type of things that put your child's learning experience in jeopardy. These school districts across the country are treating good students like criminals for all the wrong reasons. Like a child is having fun eating a cookie to make it shaped like a gun, or a child that carries a butter knife to school, so he or she can use it to cut a fruit for their lunch, or carrying a toy gun to school, or dressing up in a T-shirt with something that the school calls offensive, or a girl dresses something that they call it distracting to the boys or the most important thing, carrying medication that they call it 'carrying illegal drugs on school campus'. That is total poppycock in my book! Let me tell you when I went to school way back in the day. We didn't have to worry about carrying a knife to school. we've just hid it in our purses or in our coat pockets. We didn't have to worry about carrying a toy gun to school, because it was normal at the time. We wore clothes that didn't offended anyone. We brought medications to school in order to make ourselve feel better. We were totally free to do whatever feels good to us. And now you clowns want to suspend or expell a student for normal and harmless behaviors like this? Well, you've got life all messed up with the way you do today's future leaders! Let me tell you what you're doing wrong! You're getting rid of the good kids who want to learn, so you can bring the bad kids that do not want to learn! You're tearing this school system down, so they can't learn anything! And besides, these schools are not teaching our children right anyway. You're making it difficult for our children to get a great education in school by wrongfully suspending them or expelling them from school by the things that you school leaders wrote on your disciplinary codes of conduct policies! You're denying them of free expression, a chance to learn and a chance to thrive in this society! Why don't you stop treating our children like dogs for once in your lives for one second! Because to a parent, a child's educationn is the most important thing in the world. Our children deserves that chance and you clowns have taken that away! How shamefull!!! You don't care about the children! You clowns only care about the money! That's all you clowns think about! Parents! It's time to take a stand and fight for your children! Because this kind of rhetoric has got to stop!!! Period! We are dead last in the world's most educated countries right now, so we need to get rid of these corrupt school administrators, and corrupt school principals and corrupt politicians that are running our school system and vote them out of office this November. Because they're not making it better for our kids, they're just making it worse! And that's a definite no-no in my book! Period! If you got kids in a public school system that just doesn't care, get them out of public school immediately and send them to a charter school in your area or a private school (if you got the money for it). Because what they're doing is not in your child's best interest.

I have to admit, these are powerful expressions about how students are being profiled. I don't know what to do to make this better. I do know that back in my day, there were students who usually wanted to get a good education and make friends. Back in my day if two students wanted to have at it, they would have an ordinary fist fight after school, no guns, no knives. They would just have at it and that would be that. Being wrongfully suspended is not fair and certainly this is a thing that goes on in public schools these days. It is not a pretty subject but you bring this subject to light and for that I give you credit for calling attention to things.

There is too much happening in education these days that has nothing to do with learning and everything to do with privatisation and making money. Education should not be about money, it should be about helping all children develop to their full potential. There are some really crackbrained idiots about who apply "rules" without using commonsense.

Well, lookatdesktop and MegL, you're absolutely getting what I'm talking about. And lookatdesktop, I have to say that you're also putting it into perspective on what you've said. We didn't use guns to shoot up somebody or shoot up the schools, we've used our fist to solve conflicts back in those days, and that would be the end of it. School students shouldn't be profiled for any reason whatsoever! They should be giving a chance to rise to their full potential in achieving a high quality education. Not the other way around. And I blamed this one on the states for agreeing to this kind of rhetoric on our school children. These people don't deserve to teach our kids this way and to have a job like this. Really! They need to get back to the basics of educating our children, but with modern technology to make learning fun and easy. That's what they need to do, and stop playing with our children's lives. Because one day, they'll be running the country someday.
