Just to ruffle your feathers this morning; Our school system just built three new grade schools, another under construction. In this bankrupt state of Illinois, no one seems to know where the money has come from. Well, that is another topic. One of my daughter in laws is a SE teacher, with her graduate degree, and is teaching in one of these new schools. Friday night they had a meet/greet for family of staff, soup/sandwich deal fundraiser. Many folks there. I asked my daughter in law if I could see her classroom, she had a work assignment, but my son (who is a cop) said he would take me. Anyway, very nice room for her class. My son says, "Dad you are going to like this" He takes me to the back of the classroom, where there is a solid wood door, with a small pane of glass. He opens the door and says, "This is their lock up room, one of two, the other is on the other end of the school" . The room was about 8 ft wide by 10 ft deep, and completely bare. The room is meant to keep unruly or uncontrolled kids in, locked down. My son said if a kid is brought in, the classroom must be emptied and the class taken elsewhere. Keep in mind, this is a K-5 school, kindergarden through 5 th grade. How times have changed. In my grade school, unruly kids were dealt with, with a very thick ruler.
