School in Oklahoma City Suspends 6th-Graders (Almost All of Them)

School in Okla. City Suspends 6th-Graders
OKLAHOMA CITY – A public school suspended nearly all of its sixth-graders for class disruptions and a cafeteria ruckus this week, though many of the students were allowed to return after their parents met with school officials.

The person who sent this article to the UU homeschooling list lives in that school district. While her children have been homeschooled, her foster children haven’t been. One of them was placed in this school and was having a lot of trouble, so Camille “shadowed” her through school for a couple of days.

We went into her math class—this was the teacher with whom she had the most hassles. The teacher started the class by telling the kids, “If you want to do math, come up here. If you don’t, go in the back and put your head down or talk quietly.” Then she seemed surprised when the kids got totally out of line.

(Disclosure: Camille is one of my heroes.)
