This week heading back to school after Spring break was rough… very rough. I know, I know… woman up, Kris! And I am.. but whoa, i’m almost kind of glad to not have anymore big, long breaks from now till graduation in August… because it’s so touch to get back into the swing of the routine.
I seriously hope they became best friends after this
I seriously hope that teacher was forced to go on an unpaid leave of absence to pull his head out of his ass or he was fired. No teacher should put a student through that, especially when it seems so urgent. Fuck that guy. But srsly, props on that footballer and I hope that the girl was alright afterwards…
No one should ever have to “ask permission” to go take care of normal body functions that we have little control over
And this is why i teach my children that you are not asking permission to use the bathroom, but simply letting your teacher know where you are leaving to. If it’s an issue, I’ll handle the school.
people don’t (typically) broadcast all of their lowest points. they don’t post videos of themselves fighting with loved ones, pictures of themselves crying so hard they can’t breathe, or write paragraphs about how hard it is to get out of bed somedays. most people experience these lows privately,…
Having a particularly low day today myself… this is so true
The incident: A girl took a razor from a kid who was self-harming.
The appropriate response: Congratulate her.
The actual response: She was suspended from school.
Adrionna Harris is a sixth-grade student at Bayside Middle School in Virginia Beach, VA.
While at school last Thursday, Adrionna found one of her friends self-harming with a very small razor blade (like the one pictured above, which I can’t figure out the practical application of).
According to her mother, no teachers were around, and Adrionna felt it was “a 911 situation,” so she took the blade from the boy and immediately threw it in the trash.
Adrionna then went to school staff and told them what had happened. They responded by giving her a ten-day suspension with recommendation for expulsion. This was as part of the school’s zero-tolerance policy on possessing weapons on school property.
