I have been teaching 23 years with seven off for good behavior. A total of
thirty. whew
This is the first year that detailed instructions on what to do when
confronted with a weapon were given as a part of staff development. Other
instructions were given on what to do when a certain code is broadcast were
given as usual (for the past several years at least) but having a half hour
spent on defense against a weapon was a first. I am thinking of buying those
seven years I need. I am too old for this.
And Jill, you are right. The unruly ones are more numerous and more unruly.
and of course guidance is the same old same old. Art I is a dumping ground.
It is a wonder that I ever get anyone to go on to Art II. But somehow our
program is growing.
