Honestly, I've been wondering the same thing. When, exactly, did the culture change to one where the teachers lost control of their classrooms?

I was in grade school from 79 - 84/85 or so. If my teacher had called my parents in the middle of the day to tell them, "Come make your kid sit down in class", my mother probably would have come to the school. She would have marched into the classroom, grabbed me, taken me outside the classroom and whipped my ass. Then she would have pushed me back inside the classroom and gone home. Granted, my situation was slightly different - my parents could have been considered abusive and I was terrified of my mother, so there was no 'acting out' on my part. But even when I went to the 'gifted and talented' classrooms, where things weren't as structured, I don't think any of us went out of control to the point where a parent had to be called in to run interference. And I went to grade school in California & Washington, which are known for being slightly more liberal, so I don't think anyone could say we acted differently than say, kids in Nebraska or Georgia.

When I went to jr. high in Tennessee, they still enforced corporal punishment - and they did not have to contact parents or guardians if a situation happened where the dean would make you bend over & grab your ankles. He used a yard stick, too.


And the next question out of my parents mouth after they made me sit down would have been, "Why didn't you send her to the principal, that's what he's there for, what about the detention business in the handbook you give us.." My schools didn't have corporal punishment, but from what I understand, things were going better without it.

But then again, I wasn't special needs.  Special needs are special.  That's the problem and the good thing. I get called before they expell my son, not while they're doing it.  My other kids don't get the same consideration.  They don't get the same slack.  THey get sent to the principal's office rather than their counselors.  I get a phone call toward the end of the day from Stanely telling me he will be home late because he has a detention because he acted  up in class.  I get a phone call from the counselor telling me VIctor had a bad day in english because he hadn't finished his math in the previous class and couldn't transition, bad enough that they had to pull him to his counselor and calm him down, but he was able to go back, we're working on this, from all fronts.  DIfferent between the two kids, Victor has an IEP and Stanley doesn't.  

"I've got a bad feeling about this."
