I never once said that Salecia's actions were ok on any level,
What I did say was that this was handled very badly!!
IMHO, these are the step's that should have been taken...
1)When Salecia's meltdown started, they should have called momma.( this wasn't done until after the fact) If momma had been called, then the rest of what happened wouldn't have happened, that's just common sense, and in the best interest of everybody concerned including Salecia!
2) Salecia was surrounded by grown ADULTS, that were able to remove her from the classroom and get her to the principals office, so some measure of control was there,they should have used that to their advantage instead of freaking out.
rigel foing what i do for a living, i'm well aware of how careful we have to be when handling children, there's always gonna be some parent that's lookin to "Stike it rich" by a lawsuit against the school district.
Case in point:every year the main office get's request's by parent's to have the same driver for their child because they are pleased with the service that they received, now the main office can't grant these request's because routes change ect,,
BUT the one time that they did grant this request was for "The hateful , Evil , Devil Child"
Now I call her this for good reason, This Child was 14 years old and her reputation was known far and wide, NOBODY and I literally mean NOBODY wanted to deal with her, she had been thru 14 aides, who swore that they'd quit first if they had to deal with her ever againand a good many of them did quit!
contractor's didn't want to touch her either,
The reason that I know all of this is because i was the "LUCKY" recipent of that request( sometimes it's just so much fun to be me...)
Her mother (who had and was always looking for away to sue the school),her aide at the time,and the school, all made that request( the turn coats) because they werer impressed with the way that I handled her....
( benedict Arnolds , all of em),my take on this "OOO just shoot me now!! and don't yell at me if one mornin she comes to school tied to the luggage rack!"
Bow i'm not the baddest driver on the block, so that wasn't the reason that I was given this child...
I do 2 things with kids like this, First I pray and then i let them know that i'm not gonna put up with any of their crapola..peroid,
She knew beyong the shadow of a doubt that i mean't what i said and said what i mean't...she tried me a couple of times to see if i mean't it..she learned quickly that I did.
This child was the "purest Form Of HELL ON WHEELS"
My only control over her was simply this, her daddy didn't play the game that her momma did,he didn't let her get away with anything..so all i had to do was threaten to call her daddy...case closed over and out..LOL
my point rigel is that even with a "Hateful, Evil Devil Child" theres always a a way to control them, you just have to look for it and use the good sense that the GOOD LORD gave you....
With Salecia, this didn't happen and they made more of a mess for themselves in the long run.
and rigel don't worry about that "old Book" i was raised by that old book, my daddy would have , shall we say made it impossible for me to eat my meals sittin down...he wasn't much for spankin, but in a situation like this,i would have been holdin my hind parts in my hands and winderin if i could get it back in place ever again...
