Let’s see here…we have students that have been underage drinking on a school trip, we have students who have stolen (some of them $100’s) from business’s. Yet what has happened? Some of them are expelled for 3 days others recieved 8 days. Here is my issue. The kids who were not involved and those who were involved all know that some of the students guilty of the worst degree of crime here got off with only 3 days of suspension! Why is that? What do the kids who got the 8 day suspension think when they see that if they had only been more popular or their parents been more prominent, or they had been a better liar, then they too would have only had 3 days instead of 8? Of course all I know is what the kids are saying about it all. But you know what the kids are the ones who know what is going on. The message sent out here is you can do whatever you want, you will still graduate (all of the students are going to walk at graduation, with the exception of one who is failing a class), you will not be held responsible for your actions, we will ignore everything if you are popular enough or you have the right parents. But if you do anything wrong and you do not meet the above criteria we will kick your but out of school for the rest of the school year. At least that is the message I am getting. I may be all wrong here and I may have heard things that are not true. But this is what the students are thinking and this is the message they are recieving whether it is true or not. Our school Administration has made some very poor choices in my eyes. And I have reason to expect them to tow the line. They insisted on doing things by the book with my son, he stole $19. He was kicked out of school for the rest of the school year. (there was more to it than that but, the message is still the same), Some of these kids stole $100’s and they are suspended for 3 days. Hmmmm I am having a real hard time with making any sense of this. Perhaps if you know more than I do, maybe you could enlighten me as to what is going on here?
