For example, my now 13 year old coming home from third grade asking my
why white people hate black people and why are we so mean to them...

Same kid this year comes home and tells me about how his reading teacher
did not realize that the war of 1812 had major land battles and he had to
explain and show her in a History book that the war of 1812 had land
battles...

Or when we re-arranged our schools from community center to grade
centers one of my kids teachers stated at a parent teacher conference that
they knew the "Bonfield" kids would be behind. And she was correct.

My son's Algebra teacher at the beginning of the year was not handing back
graded homework until after the unit test. So how are the kid to know what
to study for the test. I had a few words of prayer with that teacher, my kid
now has his homework back no later than 2 days after it is turned in, same
teacher also has marked numerous problems wrong this year that I have
shown his error on and he corrected for the class. Because when I find
these errors I email them to the other parents I know in my sons class.
I do believe he, the teacher, will be glad when this year is over. I have met
him and would call him a slacker.

I would think it is safe to say that half of the public school teachers today,
from my personal experience with 4 different school districts and 2
Universities and one Community College. were evaluated as private sector
employees are evaluated at least half of them would loose their jobs.

Their own time, I just love that, you do have a sense of humor... I will
remember that next time I am working on a customer report or Powerpoint
Presentation at 11PM at night or on the week end or at one of my sons
sporting events.

Time to put on the big girl pants adults do work outside of your "9 to 5"
dilusion. Consistantly the only job I have ever seen put in just their hours
and go home are government workers.
I'm sorry that you have not had good experiences with education which is apparent. I know what hours I actually work and what I do for my kids, like spending my entire Saturday at a Dance competition because my girls (students) wanted me to see them dance.
I just find it odd that you correct the teachers and others on the forum for their grammar and spelling when you had two spelling errors within the last two sentences alone. Also, how does one "loose" their job? I normally would not care, but since I'm wearing my big girl pants I thought I should point it out. Time to go and change the world, 150 kids at a time. . As you obviously have your opinions and I have mine, I won't be posting on this anymore.

A seven-year-old boy was suspended from his elementary school for using
an imaginary grenade while playing "Rescue the World" on the playground.

The story was featured on Fox 31 Denver. Second-grader Alex Evans
pretended to throw a grenade into a box full of, in his words, "pretend evil
forces."

"I pretended the box, there's something shaking in it, and I go pshhh," Alex
explained.

Unfortunately for Alex, his exploits (heroic as they were) went against Mary
Blair Elementary School rules. Those rules include no fighting (real or
pretend) and no weapons (real or pretend).

Alex's mom commented that she doesn't think the rule is practical.
"Honestly I don’t think the rule is very realistic for kids this age,” Mandie
Watkins said. "I think that when a child is trying to save the world, I don’t
think he should be punished for it."

Alex is just as perplexed as his mom. "I was trying to save people and I
just can’t believe I got dispended," he told Fox 31.

A similar incident took place last month in Pennsylvania when a fifth-grade
girl was reprimanded by school officials for bringing a piece of paper in the
shape of gun to class.

Assault chicken fingers!

The Jonesboro School District has a zero tolerance policy against weapons, and the chicken finger apparently violated that policy in this incident. According to South Elementary principal Dan Sullivan, the punishment "depends on the tone, the demeanor, and in some manner you judge the intent. It's not the object in the hand, it's the thought in the mind. Is a plastic fork worse than a metal fork? Is a pencil a weapon?"

Unfortunately, Christopher's case isn't unique. Zero tolerance policies against weapons in schools have gone too far since various high-profile incidents of violence in high schools throughout the US. Ben Ratner was expelled from Blue Ridge Middle School in Virginia for violating his school's weapons policy after he took a knife away from a friend who was threatening suicide. A 15-year-old Florida student was suspended because his nail clippers included a file.

I'm all for keeping weapons out of schools, but shouldn't we wait for students to bring the weapon before we suspend them?

What do you think happens when kids grow up emulating the servicemen that have fought for this country in the past and present?

People just need to step back and realize that the weapons aren't the issue...it's good vs evil here and the only way to stop a bad guy with a weapon is calling in the good guys with weapons...Picture VERY related.

She told him that he cant wear them. He told me about it. I asked if anyone else has said anything. He said no. She has said it about a bunch of his shirts. But again no one else has said a word. He came home on Friday and said that the teacher said the same thing about his Halo shirt. She told him that it advertises for a violent video game. It just has the name Halo on it with a lightning bolt looking thing on the shirt. There is no gun or anything on it. I told him to continue wearing his shirts. I said that the next time she says something that he is to politely tell her that he is exercizing his first amendment rights.
A similar thing happened to me when the '08 election rolled around, I was in science class and the teacher was a avid Obama supporter, she had the childrens version biography standing proudly on her shelf, her screen saver was Obama, and she had a Obama bumper sticker on her car, in retaliation I got a bumper sticker an put it on my binder, and put a poorly drawn McCain sign on my desk, and the best of all, one day I wore a McCain-Palin shirt with a McCain '08 button on it.. Well she flew off the handle, she asked me to go out to the hall and we had a talk (more like a lecture). I could tell she was being careful with her words but she wasn't. She was saying things like "I know we have our political differences but we don't need to put them out for all to see (says the one with Obama crap plastered everywhere!)" and bull**** like that, it ended with her saying "it would be best if you wouldn't wear that shirt or pin again". I kept wearing it until Election Day and on Election Day, I was made a pole sitter or the mock school election and the vice principal made me turn my shirt inside out, she had a big ole cotton pickin grin the next day....... I was the biggest annoyance to her and the other closet Obama supporter who was my homeroom teacher.

"Offensive messages or pictures"?

So guns are offensive? I bet you don't separate your spoons and forks, cause you think it's discrimination. I drew guns all the time in school. Heck, my final exam in drawing class was an M4 stuck in the ground with a helmet and dogtags as a memorial.

I know, right? If I were in school, and I stabbed someone in the eye with a regular pencil, I could blame it on the pencil? Was it a black, evil, mechanical "assault" pencil?
