Re: 5-Year-Old Cuffed and Charged With Assault

EbonyRose ·
Today in Police Brutality: 5-Year-Old Cuffed and Charged with Assault Michael Davis is a hyperactive 5-year-old diagnosed with ADHD who frequently gets into fights at school. His mother calls him an "energetic, loving, good kid" who is misunderstood by school administrators at Rio Calaveras Elementary of Stockton, California. They disagree, frequently complaining to his divorced parents that he is a discipline problem. When the school didn't see any improvement, they took matters in their...

First of all, I don't BELIEVE in medicating children that YOUNG!!! Secondly, school officials are too quick to handcuff our children instead of using the tools and skills they went to college and supposedly trained for. Whatever happened to go to the corner? Whatever happened to time out and then contacting parents before sending him off to a psychiatric hospital? Whatever happen to steps to mitigate the problem prior to giving up and calling the police? On a five-year old? GTFOH!! See we...

African America is going to have to see where they stand on this issue. On the one hand, our children would be better off if we could open our own schools in our own communities (and Churches). On the other hand, if we assist in de-funding public schools, where will our children be educated at when they change the game on us? (and they always do). Or, should African Americans fight like hell against this, which is going nationwide, and do whatever it takes to make ALL Public Schools better...

That is bold. Where does the left stand on this? Will they try to block this privatization of the school system? I predict if Louisiana passes this, it will be a matter of months before every state tries the same thing. And illiteracy will be back at 1789 America.

Beside the act itself perpetrated on this child, what I found unbelievable was the fact that the school was going to continue to allow the older child to attend the school, with the school principal saying, 'the assault would not happen again and that the two children would be separated and closely monitored.' I would be demanding that either that child not be allowed back in that school or that the school district pay for my child to attend a private school; in fact, I think I would demand...

Schools, prisons and hospitals are similarly built. When I attended school, it was fun. Those days are long gone. Uniforms are the dress for today through elementary 1st through 8th.

You said it, Yemay! The best thing that Black people can do with this situation and all others is to Boycott. This is REALLY about is MONEY; Public schools receive X-amount of dollars for each day a student is in attendance per child, if the child does not come to school, the school system does not get that amount for that day, evidently, there must be some prorating of funds going on regarding tardies.
