Cant hold the people who are doing wrong accountable - oh no - lets blame the innocent again, lets blame the object again.

Will these so called educated people ever understand that until we hold the people who are commiting the offenses responsible for them and insituting suitable punishments the bad behavior will never stop.

>>>A school district official in Missouri allegedly told the mother of a 13-year-old girl that the girl should undergo breast reduction surgery if she wants to put an end to constant bullying about her cup size.

Tammie Jackson says her daughter Gabrielle, a sixth grader at Central Middle School in north St. Louis County, has faced bawdy comments and general harassment for several months because of her large breasts, KTVI reports.

When Jackson contacted the school district in an effort to find a way to stop to the teasing, she says she got a response she wasn’t exactly expecting.

“The lady on the phone said they could transfer my daughter and said her boobs were so large she will always get teased,” Jackson told the station. “And the only suggestion she had for me is to have my daughter get a breast reduction.”<<<

These people just never seem to get the message nor do they want to understand the message.

You think this kind of behavior is limited to just Administrators in schools? Look around you...

Sadly Mount Carmel is from my original neck of the woods up there in PA...what a sad display and horrible decision on both accounts.

This is a good thread to post these type of dumb things because it seems almost daily something dumb like this happens.

I've seen that in the school system before. A group of kids picks on one kid mercilessly. The kid complains, the kid's parents then complain, and what happens? Invariably, the administration offers the kid to transfer to a different school, rather than punishing the guilty brats. But I get it. It's easier to punish the one kid, and easier to listen to one complaining parent than it is, say 10 sets of complaining parents claiming that their "little angle would NEVER do anything so heinous as pick on another kid.. never in a million years."

Well if this is an example of the fine upstanding inspirational speakers they prefer - it explains a lot.
>>>Left-wing ’60s radical and onetime domestic terrorist Bill Ayers will be a keynote speaker at the Association of Teacher Educators annual conference in Atlanta next month.

Ayers gained notoriety alongside his wife Bernardine Dohrn as a member of the Weather Underground during the Vietnam War. He was involved in Chicago’s “Days of Rage” riot in 1969 and went underground as a fugitive from justice after an accidental Greenwich Village townhouse explosion in 1970 killed three Weather Underground members who were preparing a bomb that prematurely detonated.

Ayers admitted in a 2001 book that he participated in bombings of the New York City Police Department headquarters, the U.S. Capitol Building and the Pentagon in the early 1970s.
The Virginia-based Association of Teacher Educators describes itself as a “membership organization devoted solely to the improvement of teacher education both for school-based and post secondary teacher educators.”

“ATE members represent over 650 colleges and universities, 500 major school systems, and the majority of the state departments of education. The ATE office is located in the Washington, DC area where it represents its members’ interests before governmental agencies and educational organizations,” according to the organization’s website.<<<

Their choice for a speaker is a self confessed traitor, murderer and person who attempted mass murder who is unrepententant and who said he would do it again for political reasons?

No wonder the educations system is so messed up today!
