6 Year Old Arrested For Having Tantrum At School

I can't imagine working in a high school when kids get violent. I'd just call security and get out of the way.
It can be tough. I’m 5’3”. I’m not about to get pummeled by a man-sized kid.

Part of the problem is training teachers not to get into power struggles with ED kids (really...with any kid, but that’s a whole ‘nother post).

^^^^YES, this!!!!

Too many teachers start arguing with kids like they're a kid. I have seen some deliberately provoke students so they can get written up and the teacher can throw up her hands like well those kids are bad.

It is infuriating.

Also not true about staff being trained to properly restrain kids.
At my kids school a black and white kid both had tantrums and tore the class room up. Principal tried to restrain the black kid and was kicked. Black kid was expelled. New rule implemented that staff can't touch the kids. White kid tears class room up the next year and no one touched him. Everyone exited the room and he pulled down a book shelf. He got to stay because he had an IEP.

What in the world. smh I'm sorry but teachers should not have to put up with this nonsense.

There needs to be a total revamping of the educational system.

I think it’s also the lack of exercise that’s causing these kids to act out. They’re over stimulated with sugar and all the video games and TV but they don’t get physically worn out enough to balance it out.
I don’t think that has anything to do with special needs, but I do believe that has a lot to do with attitude and behavior in general. These kids are in more structured activities than ever before too. But too many parents are working now, so going outside during the week isn’t much of an option. Aftercare, before care, daycare, gotta stay in until mom or dad gets home. Too much helicopter parenting and it doesn’t seem safe to just let your kids go outside anymore.

I didn't know the officer is black.

He didn't have to arrest her.

Let me ask ya'll
If the little girl is kicking people and tearing up the place, How should the staff have handled it?

I threw a tantrum was I was in Kindergarden. They called my mom, and I went home for the rest of the day *shrug*
