    Default Suspended for cussing.

    I didn't know where to stick this thread.

    My youngest sister, in 9th grade, got suspended for a day for muttering the word "bitchy" under her breath in a response to a teacher.

    I only have my sister's side and I know she lies frequently.. Generally the idea was she asked questions, or was being disruptive (the latter seems to make more sense..) and the teacher told her in a less-than-pleasent tone to sit down an do her work quietly.. to which my sister sat down and muttered something of a "She's being bitchy about it." to another student.

    The teacher overheard it, and she was suspended for it.

    I don't understand how kids can walk around saying the n-word and an array of other words and have nothing done to them. My dad has been called a "Dumb, fat cracker bastard" by a kid before, not the first offense, and nothing was done when he took it up higher. Another seperate time, different child, excessive use of the N-word was recorded by my dad over the course of days, taken to higher, nothing done. My dad's been driving school buses for a little over 3 years now I believe, and the array of things he's seen, witnessed, and reported is extensive, going so far as a child mentioning "Oh the driver must be drunk!" out loud to start conflict, kids called parents, and by the time my dad got back from that same bus route he walked in and was immediately given a breathalizer test. He wasn't even told why until after he took it and it came out clean.

    I don't want any dispute on whether it's right or wrong to cuss for children. I wonder why children are suspended for things like this when they should be forced to remain in school longer (volunteer services, after school suspension or even in-school suspension) or other things.

    Case in point: Colorguard (A group-organization much like cheerleading but with flags instead of pom poms) is what my sister is in.. and it's kept her out of a LOT of trouble since she's started, because she's so busy she doesn't have much time to get into trouble.. and her liking of the sport keeps her from making bad decisions. Suspension keeps them from performing, and thus keeps them from staying afterschool for the practices. I know it's a privilage, but I would think a teacher being offended by the b-word she'd have suspended her entire class by now.

    I don't understand how kids get away with SO much now-a-days, but everytime my sister does wrong the school cracks down on her like she might as well be in boot camp. She's not a GOOD kid, but she's definitely not as outrageous as the children I come across on a daily basis.

    Eh, a suspension isn't a big deal.

    People with authority are often unfair and/or corrupt; a huge part of growing up is learning that, and choosing how you wish to act in the future.

    ^ Hahhaha!! This is true. Even when I was in high school students were getting away with murder.. I remember one time a teacher telling me to call my mom to change a shirt because it had a hole in it (I even had a tank top on underneath.)

    The ruckus I created got me in the principles office, but I was dismissed at the end of it all without any warnings or notices, because the fact is: Kids dress so outside of the code of conduct that the entire high school would be in trouble for the same thing I was being scolded for.

    I was suspended once for an accidental slip of the word shit, while saying shoot really fast.

    I didn't even think anyone even heard it we were outside and running.

    I went to a fucked middle school.

    ^ THat's what I'm saying. Hearing words like that all the time will put them in your head. While I don't generally cuss infront of my family, I HAVE slipped before infront of her. I didn't mean to, but I did.

    Saying that without thinking much about it at the time is common for people, and I'm not saying she said it unintentionally but.. With no prior offenses at this school I don't understand how she is instantly suspended. There are more offensive things done to bus drivers all the time without any action taken.

    To me, bus riding is just as much a privilage as colorguard.

    Ironically, I once got suspended from school for saying the N-word. I think I was also in the 9th grade at the time.

    Suspension from school would require a bit more rope, I take it. Some schools are like 50 stories high.
