I was outside of the school waiting for my son. The bell rang,the kids came out. One boy came out in a huff and said,"GOD! I hate teachers! I got yelled at just for jumping off a railing!" A few kids decided to play tattletale,and ran up to the police liaison to tell him what the kid said,and to point out where the kid was.
You would have thought the kid had come out threatening to burn down the school with the way the liaison acted. He rounded up 2 more teachers,and they had a conference right in front of me about "what should be done in this situation"
By the time we left,one of the teachers was on the phone to this kid's parents.
So is this what we've come to?
A kid (who is 13 by the way) can't even vent his frustration without everyone assuming he is now a threat to himself or others?
And what's with the tattletaleing? I could see if the kid had said he was now going to do something to the teacher,yeah,but all he did was walk to his bike and look like he was going to cry. The teacher probably embarrassed him,and now he'll be treated like a criminal.
