Its a problem with the teachers not wanting to deal with run of the mill kids acting up behavior.
So lets drug them during their “Wonder Bread Years” and then when we take them off the drug they can become “Adam Lanzas”.
...and then use that as reason to take away our 2nd Amendment rights.....
But, it still is easier to blame teachers instead of parenting.
When we were kids it was called “not paying attention” and were acted upon accordingly - not some new age moniker for drugging kids. If you got out of line you were put back in line swiftly.
My father was a school administrator and retired early (35 yr ago). He said at the time that changes were coming and they were NOT good ones so he opted out.
Discipline has been removed from the classroom - parents as well as teachers have been taken out of the authority loop.
There is hardly any local control concerning curriculum nowadays -
I think you are very much closer to the truth than you realize. Teachers in a vast majority of classrooms today...can't touch the kid let alone look at them the "wrong way." If appropriate types of discipline have been removed from both teachers and parents.... what else does that leave?
