Any adult, parent, school administrator, public servant, etc. should be able to analyze the following deplorable action, and provide a number of alternative methods to handle the situation, which don’t escalate to raw, brutal violence immediately.
Methodically Pulling/Sliding the stubborn child, chair and all out of the room and to the Principal’s office would suffice for shaming a non-compliant “student” perhaps? ANYTHING, but applying the head lock, backwards WWE “take down” of a student just doing a “sit-in” in a chair in protest…
I think if a parent did this at home to a child, they would be liable for “assault & battery” upon a minor. In our school “systems”, it is defended, even from the top levels. Are you kidding?!
The comments at the Blacklistednews link above reflect a low caliber of citizen input on this subject. This in itself should be taken into account as an individual analyzes this situation thoughtfully.
