!st of all don't listen to me,but i would have to ask the pres if i jump over this desk and start kicking the s#$% out of you would you defend yourself and if you hit me back in protection would we both be responsible? Will we both be charged with the same thing, if not why can you defend yourself and my child can't?

This is Auburn Country!! Eufaula, Alabama! WDE!!
FWIW, my son came home from school to find a kid he barely knew standing at our mailbox. He asked the kid what he was doing there and the kid said that he came over to do something I can't describe here to his baby sister. My son beat the idea right out of that kid's feeble little mind. The police showed up and arrested my son for what he did, even given the circumstances. Nothing was done to the other kid. When the case went to juvenile court, the judge read the statements of the arresting officers, the police chief, and my son and decided to drop all charges. It was a hassle, but they got it right in the end, IMNSHO.

Sadly political correctness is just a way of life in public schools, as I remember this policy of all get suspended in a fight no matter who threw the first punch going back to the 70's. My dad just took the tact that he never wanted to hear of me starting a fight, but I would never get in trouble with him for finishing one. The best plan these days is if at all possible, get kids into a private school, because as Karl Marx laid out in the Communist Manifesto, " The government must educate the children".
I have no problem with giving civil advice to anyone who asks for it. I am well-versed in the intricacies of such problems, and I was a principal probably as long as you can remember - especially since I'm older than dirt! If you don't like my 'advice', don't heed it - and that goes for sam, too. I just know what it's like, and sometimes 'virtual' friends are the best kind - they don't slap you or curse you or tell you how ugly yo' mamma is! I had enough of that whilst I was working, thank you! Sam - do what's best in your heart, and always support your child - even if they're wrong!! Correct, don't berate! WDE!!
This is reason #396 that forcing parents, by law, to send their children to school sucks. As much as I hate to say it, and feel it, I am of the "Gloria & Meat-head" philosophy. I do not want to bring another human being into this world to put up with the increasing number of IGMOS out there.
I have been in middle school classrooms for 25+ years now and I can tell you that the two biggest problems are POOR parenting (too busy trying to be their friend instead of whipping their asses and being friends 10 yrs down the road; being a parent is NOT supposed to be "cool". It's hard, it's a full time job, and damn it if you sign up for it then do it right or get the hell away from me and take your sorry ass kid with you....this includes Walmarts) and WHIMPY-ASS administrations (also trying to get the kids and parents to like them instead of running a tight ship and creating an environment that shows respect to ALL adults, even & especially to the custodians & lunchroom workers, and is conducive to LEARNING not entertaining.)
Teenage girls are AWFUL. Backbiting, stuckup, lazy, easy, and miserable. Very few show any signs of improving mothering skills for the future.
I say good for your daughter that she defended herself. I recently heard that a school system somewhere, maybe here in TN, is thinking about changing their policy so that students are allowed to defend themselves. Funny thing is, as teachers we are NOT allowed to defend ourselves if we are attacked. If I ever am, I will be fired. Ain't nobody got time for that.
