  • Public School is a misnomer. They are not public schools, if so they would be run by the public/people. They are Government Schools.

    I'm glad my kids do not attend them

  • Please tell me how one intentionally passes gas? I know you can usually hold it until you get to the restroom, but most people can't fart at will.

  • Since it was intentional to disrupt class I think he should get the punishment that any other disruptive behavior gets. That said I do believe that schools are getting a bit overboard with restrictions, punishments and bringing law enforcement into school issues.

  • This is both comical and serious! My son's class has five severely behavioral children, violent in fact. One punched my son in the eye, one chocked my son, one pushed-hit-and kicked my son, another who is always in trouble for poking-touching-pushing my son ended up peeing on him and NONE, NOT ONE of these children were suspended! So I would have much rather had a child fart in his class than criminally abuse the other kids! And he is in KINDERGARDEN!  The principal thinks the above is normal behavior.......she'd probably give out awards for farts!  lol

  • my DH & bro can both fart at will...its disgusting! and having subbed in public schools i can see teenage boys being stupid enough to walk around class farting on purpose. but arresting & suspending b/c of it...thats really over the top.

    they should start doing stuff about all the violent crap kids do & constantly get away w/. like blessed5x kid's school.
