Student Suspended After Sending Text to His Classmates

It's not news that as much as technology evolves education, it also cause trouble for administrators and students, as well. Before Spring break a student from a Union County school got suspended for spreading text message where he asked his friends to stop talking with another student he just got in trouble with at school.

Principal arguing he took all statutory steps suspended the students for two days as a sanction for sending 'intimidating messages.' As far as the suspension ended, the student was back to school again. Surprisingly, he got in hot waters immediately after, now he was charged of bullying because the student allegedly pushed a girl over the floor.

My question is, should a student with a blank record, to be suspended intermediately for two different reasons. Aren't suspension to be avoided at all costs in the first place?

Since bullying starts at home, shouldn't we parents and teachers start working on educating all the way through of consequences of using technology in and out school? The very same initiative to spread word using a cellphone may be of good use if used properly. How do a student knows what is allowed and what not. If you check the procedures y regulations for every and each school, you don't always find guidelines further that the typical chapter of bullying.

What is wrong with receiving a text which wasn't aimed to you as is the case with Dayton Public Elementary School, such as reported last week. When 90 per cent of school students maneuver a cellphone, isn't our responsibility to handle this avalanche in a pretty smart way than asking them, to shut them down?

I know, too many questions and a single answer. Let the kids use their cellphones and challenge yourselves same as principal is doing it at Passage Middle School
