Thoughts on the whole Karen Klein thing

<< < (9/9)

Depending on where you live schools and disctricts might have a complex system by which they were judged.  In the "old days" the answer was fre quently to kick out the "trouble makers".  Now schools are held accountable for educating absolutely everyone (No Child Left Behind) and so they can get into real trouble if their suspension rates are too high.  In certain areas there are students wearing electronic tethers.  The judge  might order that they attend school  but not that they get certain grades.  Schools are really stuck as far as dealing with behavior.  They might take action when a student is bullied because that student's parents could sue, although it is less likely in a poor district.  Staff aren't seen as needing to be protected the same way and so students get away with bullying to a greater degree.
