the school called my once to come get my daughter back in the 70s because she led a protest and the whole class walked out.. I told them to keep her right there and let her take the bus home, why should she come home and watch TV all day.
When I was in school and did anything that the school didn't approve of or disrupted the class room, i wound up on the floor or got bounced off the wall and no one called my house, if they did and i was in the wrong, i would be in more trouble. If anyone threw things around on the bus or started any trouble, the driver stopped the bus and the trouble maker got off no matter where it was or what the weather was. the teachers and driver had controll then, not the students. we had rules and everyone obeyed or they went home. I don't agree with the old methods of punishment, but they worked better than todays methods, one trip to the principlas office was usually enough back then.
Back then, I could carry a knive, bring a gun to school to work on in the shop.
I don't think 6 ear rings in my nose or green hair would have went over very good, also we wore our pants above our rearends, not 5 sizes to big and below,our hats came off at the door. If someone was using fowl language, they usually got a fat lip. Today most kids are wearing head phones listening to music or talking n a cell phone, when i stop in at the school today, it looks more like a carnival to see who can look the weirdest and swear the loudest.
