they are going to have to get tough on these kids,what are they learning hey i can do this my parents have to pay and i get out of school. They need them out doing community service work to work every bit of it off.

Oh they are getting tougher... My child was just dropped off at school and the school is covered by police who are searching them and their bags. They are doing this to everyone, students and teachers alike.

So what are we sending our kids to - prisons and death traps? We never had police at our schools searching bags and students, and I went to school in the Chicago suburbs. Real discipline needs to return to our schools and to parents. Apparently, "time out" doesn't work too well.

Obviously the suspensions are not getting through. I would suggest Community service or Alternative school. This is costing the community way too much money. They need this to be on their record for a long period of time too, as a reminder of the severity of it. This is getting rediculous. Make the kids responsible publicly apologize to the entire school and faculty in an assembly too!

Maybe if they tell the students that the next bomb threat that comes in (no matter which school in the district) that they take the district to year around school. Make them go to school through the summer, maybe the bomb threats will stop.
