Sadly, these issues happen often. Bottom 10% of the PS that is physically and verbally out of control physically hurt a teacher by outrageously being unsafe and nothing happens to the child and the teacher is left injured. I am happy that this guy took the next step and got his story in the paper. The public should be outraged at the out of control kids and their parents who do nothing rather than the teacher.
Ask yourself, do you think this out of control six year old who had the audacity to kick a teacher and bite a principal has a direct negative affect on EVERY student in his class?
NCLB allows severe behavior problems more easily to return to the general education setting. It is all to save money. Less special ed kids means less special ed teachers needed. Special education costs the most. Its much easier to totally ignore the behavior problems and then claim that it is the teacher who has poor classroom management skills.
