Teaching his kid how to behave. SO impressive.
Parents say suspension of Arcata students not appropriate
After five Arcata High School football team members were suspended during finals week for throwing rocks at a car, their parents and classmates are saying that the school administration did not handle the situation appropriately.
”We give our kids to the teachers to educate and guard them, to ensure they are in a safe environment. They abused that,” said Steven Schectman, the lawyer who is representing the students and their parents.
And that has to do with your kid being disciplined - how?
You gotta love the comments section of the TS on this one, though. For once, there's agreement. Pretty much along these lines - Jeff E says: "The football team got what they deserved, that is for sure.
But look at the terrible lesson the parents of those hoodlums are teaching their kids. Get punished for wrong doing ? You don't have to take it like a man, get a lawyer, threaten to sue & cry to the media. The rules don't apply to you.
Schectman should get the award for the "Worst Father of the Year".
Schectman is right about one thing - “Our next step is to try to make the community aware of this.” Damn straight.
