    Lets throw some more money at education, that will solve the problem.
    Sounds like Black and Hispanic parents are getting back at society by having their kids attack the teachers.

    If its' this rough in Elementary School. High school should really be fun.

    Teachers who look like them are avoiding those schools assiduously.

    Am I reading this wrong? A 1st grade student was physically restraining the teacher. Are the kids huge or the teachers small?

    I hate to harp on this, but these issue start at home with little or no parental involvement. Can't even take the 'hood out of 1st graders anymore. We are in bad, bad shape. Perhaps obama and moochelle can teach some of these classes for free, if they really cared.

    The size of the kid doesn't matter any more. The problem is the teacher isn't allowed to touch them in any way.

    The kids know this, they get onto it fast.

    Listen to some of them interviewed on the news.
