Hi Sages,
Got a new one for ya. Talked with the guidence councelor--not that she
is any help, but we have to follow the chain of command you know. Told
her about the son (senior) of the alderman that I have in class--same
class. He sat all week and read magazines from my reference shelf to
"get ideas". Being non-confrontational, I allowed him to do that . But
then comes in after school to take the stuff home and do it. Figgure if
he's not going to work, he owns the results of that behavior. This week
he starts the same thing. I headed that off and he decided to go to the
library. He's on administrative restriction meaning he has used every
excuse imaginable to skip out of classes and hide out in some other part
of the building. Wrote the pass so he couldn't blame me for his lack of
production. He never went to the library. Not my problem. Now he comes
in after school to pick up some drawing paper. I said nada-------no
credit for stuff done outside of class-not a correspondance class. He
takes the stuff anyway---no response and walks out. What a @#$%!!!!!
sweet child eh? I'm stickin by my guns despite pushy and accusing Mom
(enabler) and power guy Dad. We'll see! Hummmmmmmmm! No more take home
anythings for anyone! I'[m always available after school for extra time
if needed.

Thanks for your help,
