Were it not for the camera on the students phones in that classroom, there would probably be no visual evidence of the girl being assaulted.
So instead of a phone my kids are going to have body cameras when they start high school.
The topic of "bad parenting" keeps coming up; and I can only imagine the same people making the remarks and comments, are some of the same people that experiment with illegal drugs and participate in other illegal activities.
Should we presume you all had unfit parents as well?
My mother raised me right...I was scared of my mother.
Did that stop me from being a kid at times? NOPE.
NTers swear they're perfect.
As for phones in the classroom...it's a losing battle. It's a part of who a kid is now a days. Just like we used to pass around comics and baseball cards in class...they're texting, facebooking, ig'n, snap chatting and whatever else they're doing.
My admin texts during class to bother us.
My wife bugs me during class.
I gotta refresh the adidas app to get 350s
If 1 kid is being a problem while my other 40 are listening...it's a win for me. I'll deal with that 1 another day.
