More, SCHOOL DAZE … Schoolboy, 10, arrested after ‘stabbing teacher in the chest with pencil.

So then. What to do? What to do?  Maybe stick a pencil in the little shit so he knows what it feels like?
I was a sort of a hell raiser in school. By that I mean, I was always joking and generally made ppl laugh. In class, for which I earned a slap on the open palm with a ruler.  Or was made to stand in the corner facing the wall outside the class room. I got to know that corner so well I gave it a name. But it never occurred to me that I should hit a teacher or even use disrespectful language of any kind. How times have changed.

Dunce’s corner banned: It could breach a pupil’s human rights, say councils

By David Wilkes

It has been used as a punishment in schools since Victorian times.

Unruly pupils have been made to stand in the ‘dunce’s corner’ by teachers so that the lesson can carry on without further disruptions.

But now health and safety chiefs have warned that the practice is cruel, describing it as a ‘stress position’ that could breach a child’s human rights.

Schools have received guidelines from local education authorities saying that standing children in the corner is unsuitable and a less physical alternative should be used.

Some teachers won’t use the punishment because it ‘humiliates’ pupils in front of their classmates.

They are now advised to ask the pupil making a nuisance to explain to the class why he is interrupting the lesson.

Traditionalists have attacked the idea, saying teachers will end up with no means left to control disruptive-pupils.

Nick Seaton, chairman-of the Campaign for Real Education, called it ‘a ridiculous idea that compares what goes on in a classroom to Guantanamo Bay’.

He added: ‘Discipline is a major problem in classrooms at the moment and teachers have got to have some solutions for children who disrupt them or the whole system will fall apart.

‘We’re getting to the stage where teachers will not have any punishments at all. The hooligans will end up ruling the classroom.

Schoolboy, 10, arrested after ‘stabbing teacher in the chest with a pencil’

By Daily Mail Reporter

A ten-year-old was arrested after a teacher was stabbed in the chest with a pencil during a class.
The boy reportedly grabbed the pencil from the teacher’s jacket pocket and then plunged it through the man’s shirt puncturing his chest near his heart.
The stunned primary school teacher then pulled out the pencil himself as colleagues called 999 and paramedics took him bleeding from the wound to Blackpool Victoria Hospital, Lancashire, for emergency treatment.

Police were also called to the school and took the youngster - described as being of very slight build - into custody.
The boy who has just reached the age when he can face the justice system is understood to have admitted what he has done.

A police spokesman said : ‘The teacher was very lucky, another inch and the sharp pencil could have punctured one of his main arteries.’
The incident is said to have occurred as the teacher tried to persuade the boy to go into the school’s quiet room used when a pupil gets unruly and needs time cool down.

The boy refused and claims the teacher tried to grapple him into the room and it was then he allegedly grabbed the pencil and stabbed him with it.
There had reportedly been an earlier incident in which the same boy kicked the same teacher.
Lancashire Police have confirmed the boy was arrested and questioned by officers about the incident.

If it is decided whether to report him for a wounding offence, a Youth Court is likely to impose a referral order on him as he has not been in trouble before.
Such an order means he could go under the guidance of a team of specialist youth workers and may have to write a letter of apology to the teacher.

Blackpool Education Authority said the boy had been excluded from the school as a result of the incident and would receive home tuition in the meantime.
The teacher is recovering from the attack over the festive break and is expected back in the classroom in the New Year.

  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
