IPS hired an out source consulting firm and these geniuses came up with the TEACHERS are to blame for everything !! Even though there is an average of one ''physical'' fight and 7 ''verbal'' fights EACH day they blame the teachers for not showing ''Sufficient rigor or robustness'' and that ''inconsistent discipline'' and ''Bullying'' were the teachers fault as was the mutual distrust of teacher/students .
What a CROCK !! When in doubt , throw the teachers under the bus .
payton are you saying that teachers are not responsible for the bullying that might occur in their classes or schools, that they see? If a teacher sees bullying and does nothing they are liable, they are negligent IMO.
I agree that teachers are responsible for maintaining a safe classroom and school environment, but they should be allowed to do their job without the threat of disciplinary action or a lawsuit. When it is necessary for a teacher to use physical force to protect one student from another, the teacher shouldn't automatically be assumed guilty of physical abuse until proven innocent. When they know that they will get the benefit of the doubt, teachers will be able to act responsibly.
I agree Spider, we just need to make the distinction from bullying and everyday fighting.
Then when you got home and told your parents they would bust your hind end and take all your freedoms away. Never did you then hear I am suing you or I am reporting you for child abuse.:punch:
