Gibbons, Cozmo The School, Inc., Bonita Springs, FL uestion Q Bad attitudes seem to spread through schools like wildfire. Some of our students have the attitude of “we are paying for our schooling, so we should be able to come when we want, be late when we want, and do what we want.” How are you handling these students? Are any of you actually getting through to them? Counseling isn’t working, probation isn’t working…any suggestions? Answers e have also had this challenge. We first give them a verbal warning and meeting, then probation for one month if the problem continues, and if probation is violated, they receive one week suspension. This has been effective on all but two students, (they were also the reason we created this process). I will more then likely end up expelling one of the two I speak of. Unfortunately you can’t get through to everyone, you can just keep trying. The issue is, this behavior is contagious and very disruptive, hence the need for eventual expulsion—I just hope if that day comes it will be my first and last. Thea Tsiranides, Sono Academy, Norwalk, CT W a know what’s funny? I paid for the privilege to go to school, and many of our students are fortunate enough to have the taxpayers of this country subsidize their education. Higher education is not a birth right! When this attitude surfaces it can be the symptom of a far deeper problem. I have found that this level of empowerment is generally a result of the teachers losing control of the classroom and not offering what the students perceive to be relevant education. When teachers are in control the attitude shifts from “I pay to come here” or “I pay your salary” to “I am proud to be a student and affiliated with this school.” This can cont inued on page 24 Y EMPOWER THE STUDENTS THAT ARE GRATEFUL FOR A CAREER OPPORTUNITY AND THE FEW DISSIDENTS THAT ARE CREATING THIS DRUM BEAT WILL FOLLOW EVENTUALLY.
