Boy's Father Says Punishment Too Steep.

If you watch the movie 'Jaws' backwards, its a movie about a shark that keeps throwing up people until they have to open a beach.

Man, I'm glad they didn't have those rules anywhere I went to school.

Next they're gonna make it a crime to use the school bathroom facilities.

It depends on the context, really. A detention would probably have been more fitting for disrupting class, but we're missing a lot of details.

Also I find it funny that the article includes:
[quote=]School officials said the teen repeatedly passed gas to make other children laugh. They said the smell also made it difficult to breathe.[/quote]

Apparently they also interviewed Billy, age 5, who added, "farts are smelly".

More at 11.

Is it worth a suspension? No, but for fuck's sake the kid is 15 years old and still cutting farts for laughs? He sounds like one annoying little bastard.

Its Polk County. You can learn more by surfing the internet and watching porn all day than you can by going to a school in Polk County.

I would know.

I dunno, I always thought schools have gotten too soft compared to when my dad went. I've been in so many classes where we've been so far behind by the end of the year, they actually had to cut an entire unit from our final exams, that I wouldn't care if they had expelled that kid. In every. Single Class. There was at least one kid that my teacher would spend a good ten minutes of class time telling them to stop talking, or to stop screwing around, and eventually give up and send them to the office. Ten minutes out of an hour of class, every single day, quickly adds up to a LOT to time I would have much rather used for review in the French courses I struggled with so badly in the ninth grade. If those kids have to never graduate so that I don't have to suffer for their idiocy, then so be it.

Hell, I'm in my senior year now, prom in less than two months, graduation in a little over three, and it's STILL happening, and I'm sick of it. My English class - English 3201, an academic, grade 12 English course in which the majority have their license and have jobs - is, by at least five or six hours worth of class time, behind the same teacher's other English classes, because all 3/4ths of the class does is dick around. It's MY final exam mark that's going to suffer for it just because THEY don't give a rats fat ass about graduation, and personally, I hope they all have to repeat their final year just for spite.

I know damn well that back when my dad went to that same school, that if you spoke out of turn you'd get a sharp smack on the top of the head by an angry nun with her engagement ring turned downward and you'd very quickly shut the hell up.

I'm sick of kids not taking school seriously, I'm sick of kids ruining school for everyone around them who WANTS to do well, and I'm sick of kids complaining when they get what's coming to them. So do I think the kid deserved to be suspended? No. I think they should have kicked his dumb ass out and let some other school deal with him.

According to TFA, the kid was suspended for farting. You're saying that when someone's had some bad beans for dinner the day before, they should be expelled for that?

Also: TFA gives no indication that this particular student has had a history of making trouble, or that he was even verbally warned by a teacher to change behavior. The implication in the article is that a series of loud/smelly farts were disruptive enough on a large enough scale that it was appropriate to bar this student from studies for 5 days.

I understand being behind because everyone else is dicking around in class. It's happened to me. If you really want to do well on exams, there are two things to remember; an exam is a test of how well you take that test. Try and find out what is covered on the exam, and study those sections only. The other thing to remember is that you are by no means required to study only while class is in session. In fact, most schools require study on your own time. It's called homework. If you don't have homework, you still need to study and review your class materials for at least an hour a day outside of class.

No, he was suspended because he was going out of his way to disrupt his class. There's a big difference. He was doing it to be a fucktard.

School officials said the teen repeatedly passed gas to make other children laugh.


He shouldn't NEED a verbal warning. He's not two-years-old. He should know better. There's a reason kids are always acting up, and it's because they know their mothers' are just gonna go, "Don't make me count to three. >=/" and not actually DO anything.

As far as exams, they're public exams written by the government that can't be seen beforehand by any teachers who are teaching the course that year. There is no "find out what's on the exam." It also means that there is a possibly that anything and everything could be on that exam, whether we had time to learn it or not.

So you're to be tested on the curriculum.

You now can find out what's on the exam. You can ask the head of department what you need to study in order to pass.

It doesn't matter that your teachers do not see the test beforehand; if it's run/written by the state, it should be written to the curriculum. Your teachers should know what they are supposed to be teaching.

Haha, that's a pretty hardcore way to get suspended.

Also, on the current topic, there are some kids who really do need a good beating :roll:
