I feel your pain JMG.
Its funny that this thread got bumped today, because something pretty big happened in my class this morning.
Two girls got into a fight, which started inside our class, spilled into the hallway, and continued out there for about 10 minutes. It was total chaos.
The girls were separated and taken to our office. They are now both on a 10 day suspension.
Now class, answer this for me:
After that incident, how much REAL learning do you think went on in class??
