The Truth is Reported: Violence Stifles Education. What will we do? Pt.1

 

Climate of Violence Stifles City Schools

Below are a series of links which cover discipline within the school district of Philadelphia. The report is shocking.  In one article a district representative responding to an incident where a pregnant women was punched in the stomach states, ”A pregnant women should know how to defend herself. “ The superintendent, Dr. Ackerman constantly tries to duck accountability by blaming the teachers. I wonder if you teach in a large city if your discipline system is bad as ours. I look forward to reading your comments. (The last in this series of articles will be out Friday and Sunday. I’ll post it during the week).
