I think they have every right. A room full of your children that they have no control over except to sent them to a principle that has no authority over them either and if one should care enough to try and punish them they take a chance of getting attacked by the kid and then the parents. I think the highest honor given to any public servant should be given to teachers. Sure there are some who just want a pay check and don't even try to teach just like most parents. We live in a world of violence, children sat in front of a tv and see murder and mayhem continually, six and seven year old children robbing and killing. I read an article just the other day about three preteens breaking in and robbing and beating a fifty seven year old woman. The thing that struck me the most was the youngest was seven. You couldn't pay me enough to be a teacher.
Happiness keeps you sweet, Trials keeps you strong, Sorrows keeps you human, Life keeps you humble, Success keeps you glowing, But true friends keep you going.
