    Maybe if child was acting the way they were suposed to they would not have gotten in trouble in the first place !!!I think parents should be taught how to rais a child that knows how to act in public not like little BRATS !!!

    One more reason why I'm paying out the wazoo to put my son in private school in Wayne County. I might not agree with some of the rules and regulations that they have (girls can't wear pants, no tennis shoes after 1st grade except in PE) but I can live with them knowing that my child is in a safe, controlled environment. I don't have to worry about irate parents losing control and striking a teacher, a child bringing a weapon to school or a child having the mental incapacity to understand that shooting people is wrong. My biggest worry about whether my skirts fit the requirments to attend a school-sponsored function.

    umm slip kid....knowing the school and the area...most of the bloggers are probably right on target with their assumptions.

    When we went to school, chewing gum was punished by detention. So many children have grown up without learning respect for anyone, and then the schools wonder what the problem is? Look in the homes first, not all blame can be laid on the schools. Don't even get me started about taking God out of school!!!

    WHY NOT????

    Um, this story, WRAL, is too premaute and WAY too thin to publish. This story says nothing about actual events. All you've told us is a parent and 2 familiy members went to a school and were asked to leave after an alleged assault.

    Bloggers, do you realize how many and how huge the assumptions you're making are?

    Child services should investigate those parents. it would appear they are creating a hostile and perhaps unsafe environment for their child.

    That's really setting a positive example for your child to follow....NOT!
    GROW UP!

    Parents complain about the public school system and how they son/daughter is getting taught. You should come to school for a week and just watch some of the things the teachers/staff have to put up with.

    If your kid does not want to learn or goes to school to sell drugs or belong to a gang, then they need to stay at home and or go to an alternative school that deals with this type of misbehavior.

    Just because you pay taxes does not give you or your child to create an unsafe enviroment, or an enviroment that prevents others from learning who want to be there.

    I know of teachers who have gotten a broken arm, blood drawn during a fight, with students who choose to not be there to learn.

    The comments above of course do not apply to every student in school, but the ones who do not want to learn it is a real challange to want anyone to stay in this type of enviroment.
