I am going to do whatever it takes to run for the school board.

Sending you good luck and best wishes for your school board campaign. It takes involved parents like you to change the way things are run and it always starts with taking the first steps and running for the board. :)

I want it fair for all the kids. I'm sick of watching the way our school works.
( my son has been suspended for the rest of the year because he got in a fight). I do not condone fighting but how come about 5 other boys this year have been involved wth fights serve their 5 day suspention and go right back to class.
I'll tell you why. 1's mommy is a teacher there, one is one the ball teams
and daddy is a coach, one is from a well do to family etc.
My son works on a farm nights after school and isn't into the sports programs .
If your going to kick out one kick them all out.
Especially if its the same thing...

Go for it! The only way you can know for sure that changes have to be made is to be involved.

was this his first fight?

Were the others involved in this fight punished in the same way?

just curious -

Public schools have issues, there's no doubt about that - the whole "zero tolerance" crap needs to go - as well as "no child left behind"

There are so many fights in that school every day.
No its not his first. The part that got me mad is there are others who do this all the time and they serve 5 day and go right back to class .
This kid threatened to rape DS's girlfriend and this is what they wre into it for.
The other kid gets he's a great kid... mommy and daddy have big money.

I think it's sad when we have to play their reindeer games just to get the respect deserved - I doubt that being on the school board would make much difference - but I wish you all the luck in the world -
