I know where you're coming from. We used to have a .22 and a 12 guage in the back window of our unlocked pickup on the school parking lot every day. If we got into it, principal and teachers would just say, " Go tell coach you need the gloves and get it over with." And we did. Now kids aren't even allowed to box in PE. Most, not all, kids today are totally different than we were. I would say they weren't raised like we were but that would imply that someone had actually tried to raise them. Nobody takes any responsibility and everything is somebody else's fault. We need to get back to the 3 R's - raisin', responsibility, and respect.

Fit, you didn't say if the principle was male or female ,but if it's a male, he really needs to grow a pair. :hide: If it's a female ,she needs to find another line of work. There is NO excuse for all of that to be happening. What is your graduation rate ?
Principal is male. Elementary principal is female and I guarandangtee you she has a pair! Maybe they're his. :shock: :lol: :lol: :lol:

We got a new male Supt. last year. Principal was runner-up for the position. I don’t think he will be back next year. For what it’s worth, both were PE teacher/coach/athletic director before moving into administration. I’ve worked for several ‘ball bouncers’ in my 18 years, but never had one I’d nominate for Administrator of the Year.

Graduation rate last year was 87.7%. State avg. was 85.7%. Our avg. over the last 5 years is 86.7%, while state avg. for that time period is 85.8%. Our only year below state avg. was ’08, we were 7% under. In ’09 we were 7.5% over (In a district our size, that's 2 kids.).

Your saying that if one of the teachers had said something about your cap ... you would have jumped on them?

BB,your thoughts and actions are exactly whats wrong with the school systems today. The hall is part of the school also, the teachers are in charge... not the students!

I've never met anyone how had the problem of being too smart though. Doesn't matter what you do, it never hurts to be intelligent in a variety of things.

BB everyone needs a good education, othewise you're at the mercy of those that do have one. Even in the dairy business you had to make a thousand decisions a day, project expenses and income, on and on and on. Don't want to sound rash but maybe that's why you're no longer in the dairy business :idea:

I always figured that every few years it was good for things to get a little tight in the business. Weed out the weak ones and the wannabe's and make things better for you, the real dairyman. When things are easy, anybody can dairy. When it gets tough the real dairymen survive. As for outfiguring a banker. Ain't gonna happen and still walk out with the money. :lol2:

I can't side with or against Big Bull, as I wasn't there. But his story may have merit.
I had a buddy in school who was a tall skinny fellow with real long legs. In HS he would sit sort of sideway because the desk was too small and his legs wouldn't fit under it.and his feet and legs would stick out in the aisle.

New teacher/ basketbaall coach got on him about feet in the aisle. Came down on him pretty hard and finally my buddy looked at him and said, "I'll whip you". He meant what he said ! That put a stop to that.
Teacher may have been down on hm because he was tall but didn't play basketball. Hard for him to understand that some couldn't hang around after school to practice to play on their teams. We had to catch the school bus, get home and go to work.

Had my problems with that same teacher. But that's another story.

Bull ain't nobody mad except you maybe. Just seems all you wanna do is toot your own horn about what an independent bad a$$ you were in school. We could all use a more education...formal or informal.
