      Yes because getting an education is so painful. The amount of work that’s expected from students is nothing compared to teachers. An average high school student has 8 classes (less depending on the graduation plan) and some have extracurricular activities. When a student goes home they do the homework for their classes and then the TEACHER gets it turn in and has to grade it. Oh but wait it’s not just your’s, it’s every students (100 or more). Then teachers have to make sure they are teaching all of the objectives the state requires them to teach so students can succeed on standardized testing. Teachers also tutor, stay well after the final bell of the day to work and sometimes even on weekends. They also have to plan lessons for everyday of the year and adjust things as necessary because they see that their students haven’t grasped the objective. Teachers try to differentiate as much as possible but it is impossible to cater to each student’s frail little ego. During the summer while students are doing any number of things teachers could be: teaching summer school, going to professional developments, working a second job because the pay sucks.
      And NO, teachers aren’t paid during the summer. The paychecks teachers receive in the summer are for the school year, there’s an option to get paid over the 10 months during school or spreading it out over 12.  If you think school is painful now I suggest you find a way to deal because when you get to college you’re going to be in a world of hurt, and your parents can’t do anything about it. Professors won’t just give you an answer and they will kick you out of their class.  Next time when you feel like comparing school to pain think about how a brave and resilient young woman defied her cultures norm, was shot in the face, and continued going to school because she knows education is paramount.

      Gosh if only young people were given the information they might use when it comes to safe sex and how to use products that would aid in preventing them from becoming or making someone pregnant. It’s like there’s this group that think just telling kids not to “fornicate” will do the trick. I think some are quick to blame the wrong part of society. But hey I guess I’m part of the fornicating generation, but fell through the cracks of getting knocked up before marriage.  As long as the parents love and care for the child it doesn’t matter if they are 18 or 38. Today families take on many shapes, sizes, and colors, making society that much more interesting. If you want to throw stones at this new little family- please go find a different lake looking at your mistakes throughout your life instead.

      Do you give the same lecture on articles covering Kentucky or are those rights not as important because it’s not as much of a hot button issue. I never said the issues were equal. I was highlighting the fact people say things like that and people jump right to the negative, case and point you. Hot button issues piss people off and they feel the need to express it online and they have every right to, free speech. So I can fill in the blank with any state and still make my point. People want to insult and chastise others for their opinions and they have every right to do so. Don’t like comments people make, don’t read them, but don’t think you are above someone for your comment. It leads to trolls zeroing in and causing you to spend hours trying to prove your point while they laugh and pat themselves on the back.

      For everyone going on about why all the guns you do t need guns here’s an answer: as Americans we were given rights as a nation, one bing the right to bare arms. As our country has grown so have we. There are gun laws and they vary by state. What many fail to point out is that the citizens that commit the majority of gum crimes are *surprise surprise* criminals. There are countless citizens that own guns for hunting/protecting/collecting and never use it in a criminal way. Americans aren’t gun crazy, we just like to voice the fact that we have our rights, and they haven’t been stripped from us after centuries of other countries telling us we need to. And just to clarify I’m American and do not own a gun, nor does anyone Inuit family. Stay classy hate mongers.

      As a teacher I can see both sides of what people are saying. Here’s the tricky thing, not matter the training you’ve been to no two situations are the same. For those who say he shouldn’t have tried to take the weed, have you read the staff handbook of rules and regulations for the campus? He might have been following the proper steps for that situation on that campus. For those saying he should have waited, do you know the discipline record of the kid, do you know that he only had weed on him and didn’t have a weapon? Do you know what the teacher’s discipline records say, has he had other “run ins” with students? Did he have probable cause, meaning did he see the attempted sale or did another student tell him about it?Just like others have said, the video and the news don’t give us the whole story. Hopefully who ever investigates this incident will be able to keep their emotions and prejudices from influencing the outcome, but don’t be surprised when they finish the investigation and the reach a decision that is “politically correct”.
