It's a long way from August 'till May!

The year is almost done. Last week we had four students asked not to return the rest of the year to this school. They will go to "alternative school" until the end of May. I feel both ways about that. They are out of control- beating up others, disrupting classrooms, in general-out of control. BUT - they are more out of control being on the streets with no supervision until they start school at 3:40 daily.
I am sort of waiting for my phone to ring.
The Trip to juvie will be interesting.
Maybe, next year, the trip from August to May will not be paved with missed opportunities of teaching self control!

Alternative school doesn't run during normal school hours? Yikes, maybe they need to require these kids to get jobs or something. In my hometown, the alternative school runs on a more 'normal' schedule
