This says something about the state of the kids right there. They're not normal kids, they're kids with special needs and attention. So something isn't right here. What else is going on with these kids and just HOW was the child who stood on a chair disciplined by the teacher? What was it like on a daily basis during class.The alleged target is a veteran educator who teaches 3rd-grade students with a range of learning disabilities, including attention deficit disorder, delayed development and hyperactivity, friends and parents said.
Tanner said the scheme involved a division of roles. One child's job was to cover windows so no one could see outside, he said. Another was supposed to clean up after the attack.
"We estimate between six to nine students were involved. ... We're not sure at this point in the investigation how many of the students actually knew the intent was to hurt the teacher," Tanner said.
So after the investigation... what's to be done?Police expected to forward the results of their investigation to prosecutors, Tanner said.
Children in Georgia can't be charged with a crime unless they are at least 13, District Attorney Rick Currie said.
I'd like to know exactly how they would plan to carry this disciplinary action out?Theresa Martin, spokeswoman for the Ware County school system, told The Florida Times-Union of Jacksonville, Fla., that administrators would follow school system policy and state law in disciplining the students.
Pretty good kids. Yet they were plotting this."From what I understand, they were considered pretty good kids," Martin said. "But we have to take this seriously, whether they were serious or not about carrying this through, and that's what we did."
Of course... as long as it isn't THEIR kids sure. Kicking them out of school isn't the answer. Taking them out of that particular class and putting them in a different one would be a good start. A different class with a highly trained teacher/educator who would be able to focus on these kids needs and help eliminate their violent tendencies.Four mothers of other 3rd-grade students at Center Elementary called for the immediate expulsion of the suspected plotters.
Maybe there were some bad books at school!They see to much TV, all it does is glorified things like this.
Heh. Here were a kid in Budapest who repeatedly robbed anyone he could, living as a part of an organized band, they even recorded their activity and loaded it up to the net. When he at last stabbed a guy for his MP3 player, police realised that here he is. They found out that he's not even Hungarian, but Romanian without passport or any papers. His family was found (they robbed the media guys), and the kid was sent back. He was placed in a special school, where he pretended to be good long enough that the teachers lowered their guard. Then he escaped. He returned to his family, and soon disappeared with his mother. And here we are, not knowing where he is.
Being cca 11-12 years old, police couldn't do anything. The stabbed guy survived due to pure luck.
