smittyYou'll probably find that math teacher was fed up with trying to control his class.A case of the inmates running the asylum.

kristiParents "should" in any case be a part of the school system no matter what. Why did the teacher leave is the question? What can be done to make the ambiance more pleasant????

ash12we need a security officer stationed at the harbour Island all age school now,, the senselessness and foolish act of the individual or individuals,,how could person or presons stoop so low to put grafitti all over the freshley painted walls (AGAIN)!!could it be students who cant learn or refuse to learn!! the person or persons must be iliterate to have done something like that at night,,i think we the community need to come together and help to protect the learning institution where OUR children attend and have to learn

kristiA kid did the same thing here last year and his punishment was local duty (cleaning village, sweeping etc) AND he had to wash the wall that he ruined when it was time for the parents to pick up the kids from school, therefore he had to do it in front of everyone. He hasn't done a thing of the sort since.

MaddieI agree with Ash that the punishment should better fit the crime.
A number of years ago we became aquainted with a young man down at the dock who was helping with luggage and when I asked him why he wasn't in school he said that he had been late that morning so the teacher sent him home.
That is no way to teach him to be on time, he should have been kept after school, which would have cut into his dock time rather than being sent home which just gave him more dock time.
This recent incident should have been punished with painting the walls again and having to pay for the paint.

ash12has anybody been watchin the bahamian news 2night? whats going on in the highschool,s now a day,s,,im glad that we dont have to have policemen stationed at the highschool here (YET),,,on the first day of school a student got caught marking up the freshly painted walls!!! alot of effort has been put in to the school, getting it ready for the new semester,,the student got a two week vacation,,but i think it should be enforced that all students who are caught puting grafiti on walls, should paint it over
