A crisis in discipline

A series of articles published by The Telegraph during the past few days, and concluding today, examined a crisis of discipline in Bibb County schools, one that threatens not only the safety of students but also their ability to get a decent education. It’s pretty grim reading. A student at Northeast High School threatens to shoot one of his teachers. A student at Heritage Elementary school slams another student’s head into a desk. “Even at the kindergarten level, I had ... children curse me, spit on me, hit other students, run down the tables and jump off,” said former Bibb teacher Rachel Veal, who declined to accept a new contract for this school year.
