NOT what I wanted to hear today:

"Mr. B, you've got to understand. The child is emotionally disturbed."

So apparently calling me a "p*ssy motherf*cker" is acceptable and will NOT be subject to any disciplinary action.

Honestly.... if I think too much about how utterly flawed the special education system is in NYC, my brain will simply leak out of me ears.

That's because they have child advocates who will sue the DOE and the city for not accomidating the needs of the student. Therefore, the city gives in. However, you shouldn't be disrespected. Request that the student be removed from your class and talk to your chapter leader about your rights.

A few years back I was doing a coverage and I was threatened by a student. At the time, the UFT was pushing teachers to file a report on such students.

So I did file a report with the UFT and the school recounting what the student had said to me.

A couple of weeks later I get a pamphlet from the UFT encouraging me to attend a violence prevention workshop.

Of course the school did nothing with this child. I was happy that this kid was not in my class. I think eventually he was sent to another school in one of those bad kid for bad kid trades.
