Comment: Michael's behavior

(See in situ)

Michael's behavior

occurs at almost ANY middle or high school in America on almost ANY given day. Teenage angst has been reinforced and empowered by parents, by teachers, by administrators, and by school board members.

When will we require completion of parenting/discipline classes of every parent before they can even enroll their child each year in public schools?

I know something about this problem; I've been teaching in a public high school for ten years now. It's been an eye-opening experience.
