I guess it really is true that nobody in this area will help an old lady with serious healthRead Moreproblem s. I hoped there would be a church; but I guess "Do unto others" no longer exists.

The students clearly need the conflict resolution counseling which they both should be attendingRead Moredur ing their suspensions. As the video shows, the student in the hoodie appears to be the aggressor and definitely assaulted the teacher and continued to do so as the teacher was restraining him. Perhaps, add on anger management counseling. While there is an instant that the teacher and both students go off screen, the student in the sweater reacts for the most part defensively, albeit taller and stronger, and restrains himself in response to the involvement of another teacher/adult. While school officials are privy to the students' accounts, teachers/adults and other forthcoming witnesses' accounts, what instigated this altercation and any previous incidents between the two, and the academic and behavioral records of both students, all of which I am not, based on the video, imho, I tend to agree with you that it is unfair to kick the student out. Mike: I appreciate you bringing this video to the community's attention. If you are interested in pursuing this further, may I suggest you bring the video to the attention of the school administrators and the young man's parents, if you haven't done so already. Also, you could perhaps investigate and report on any of the information that I mentioned not readily available to clarify why only he was expelled.

I look forward to hearing more from you. And thanks to the teachers for doing so much more than people realize and for which you're NOT commensurately paid.
