UNCOMMON-bad idea, the parents cant control them at home let alone school, do you really think the kid that would hit a teacher cares if he/she puts her parents in jail. Kids know the law and threaten it. Grounding is abuse, housework is abuse, cutting grass is abuse, not having an IPhone...

BAD PARENTS RAISE BAD KIDS!

Since the PARENTS are legally responsible for the actions of their child, ARREST the parents every time something like this occurs and these cases will dissapear in short order!

Considering that the teachers can file an assault charge and the kids can be expelled under safe schools act it's not really anyone's fault but the schools if the problem is ignored.

If the student is considered an adult by law; Ban them and their family from food stamps, unemployment and all freebies for one year. [Just being facetious]

Time to hold the parents responsible for the actions of their children. Fines and punishment for the parents and child would be a good start to curb the bad behavior. The parents need to be forced to physically monitor their child at school for a week.

Violent Country......More arrests than any other country and more peeps locked-up than any other country!

My suggestion is be ready to defend yourself 24/7! If you wait on the cops.....

I would be more inclined to ask the families of the 5-6 year olds that were killed!

let's turn to the NRA prez on this violence matter "one of our most greatest charges that we can have today, is to train the civilian in the use of the standard military firearm".

So the story is about a dude that got clocked by a girl that was fighting with a another student! I'm guessing that he was not the target of the assault.

BTW, The UNITED STATES is a very violent culture!

Maybe the teachers need combat pay. LOL
