    I am Torn by this one. While I do think those kids were Terrible and should be Punished. I am always slow to want to Demonize the kids. To be that bad, it means their Parents are Failing them. So now these kids will miss an Entire year of school because their Parents did a piss poor job of Teaching them to Respect.

    Shitty Situation all around.

    They don't have to Pay for Private School. Because the kids are Suspended the Legal Obligation of the Parents to have their kids in School is gone for a year as well.

    If they can't afford private school, or move to another District, the kids will simply miss an entire year of School.

    Not likely I know here we have a special school for those that were suspended from regular school.

    part of me agrees with what they did...

    the other part of me wonders why we would reward kids for bad behavior by giving them time off from school

    That is where these kids belong. I am conservative when it comes to minors, and their behavior. I read more about this incident, which altered my first perception. If they cannot behave in the school system detention, JUVENILE DETENTION centers will keep the brats out of trouble.

    If this is their first offense, and there haven't been behavioral issues at school, then I think suspended for a year from the bus would have been more appropriate.
