No Criminal Left Behind

After Ms. C. of Teach You a Lesson was assaulted by a student, her administration took firm measures to show its iron resolve. It suspended the kid for five days and moved him to another class.

Perhaps if he assaults the next teacher they'll suspend him for six days, or even seven. Certainly the spectre of having to spend even more time at home watching Jerry Springer would frighten the most jaded miscreant into changing his ways.

Thank goodness for Mayor Bloomberg and Joel Klein and all their revolutionary educational reforms, thank goodness they discourage incident reporting (while claiming to insist on it) by including it in schools' letter grades, and let's say a special prayer that this child doesn't get left behind just for leaving his teacher on her behind.
