    makes me glad I work at an Elementary school. Don't hear about things like that happening much in K-5th grades thankfully.

    there are so many teachers now that don't allow staudents to have ANY freedom. I love my geometry teacher because he lets us choose if we want to take notes or a quiz or whatever to help US learn the lesson. But when there are schools and teacher putting pressure and rules on students until they break, and it's never small outburst. Students are like ballons, if you put enough pressure on them they'll pop, and make a loud noise. But if you don't put much pressure they'll float into the sky, like how a student will become less stressed and make better grades.

    It is really tough on students today. Everyone puts everyone down. "your mom" "your gay""your ulgy" "Fag" and other inapproate language. Nobody can get along. The littles problem students have today are the ones the media make big deals about, like gangs, drugs, and sex. We all have a "good for you" look on that stuff. What the media needs to focus on is how the students treat each other, not what they do to themselves.

    Kids said the same things when I was in school. You either took it like a man or kicked their ass on the playground. You didn't bring a gun and shoot them.

    Kids these days are just a bunch of wusses that don't take responsibility for their actions. For example, this kid gets suspended for bringing smokes on campus. Oh no.. it's not his fault. He's gonna go shoot the principal because he's being mean to him. Gimme a break.

    There's only so far that a teacher can be nice and fun like that. If the students aren't learning teachers are going to be fired, so if teachers don't want to be fired then they start to crack down on the students a little tougher. Might be a sign of the raising of standards, or it might be a sign of a general lowering of intelligence. One thing's for sure though, if teachers aren't tough enough, people will grow up using "your" when the should be using "you're" and other atrocities of that nature.

    Its good the media likes to inform the public, but the more publicity shootings and school violence gets, the more ideas kids get and see how other children are supposedly dealing with issues with violence.. This is terrible..

    Every generation says that about the next one. The premise may change - whether it's 1950's riffraff who won't obey their 10:00 curfew or it's 2000's teens who won't pull out their Ipod's earbuds - every generation rebels. Saying "those damn kids" is like giving up and saying, "Forget it. We can't help them; it's easier to just get mad at them and call them stupid." If we just agree in unison that they don't have responsibility, who's going to teach them responsibility? That's like telling a newbie who asks a question or two in TFGD that he's an idiot because everybody knows fact X or Y. :rolleyes2 

    What's changed, I think, is the way parents, teachers and the media hype around activities like this at high schools. If you're some near-suicidal kid at a high school and you have even the beginnings of a scheme for deaths in your head, part of the thought process - I'd figure - is that, these days, you'll also get a whole hell of a lot of air time. People will talk for days on end following so-and-so's aggrandized murder/suicide/homicide about the safety of our children and the problems in our schools and etc., etc., etc.

    There's a larger degree of sensationalism in all of this - from that retarded "no school dances because of freaking" garbage to the mass-media high school suicides/homicides to, yeah, even bringing smokes into class. The issue of a gun's presence is a wild card and hard to grapple with, but putting a child with a gun/drug overdose/pack of cigarettes in the spotlight and then broadcasting his actions in live action realtime across the country is ostensible martyrdom for unhappy or disgruntled or drug-interested or gun-enthused high school students. They know they can get somebody's attention, moreso than they could before. That's probably enticing.
